Hello! It’s lovely to be back :)

I’ve had an eventful couple of weeks – full of yarn festivals, teaching, stashing new yarn and dyeing up a storm!

There’s definitely a feeling of change and new adventures in the air. And, I think it’s true the world over – just as we’re heading into warmer weather, the Northern hemisphere is cooling down. Helen Stewart at Curious Handmade Podcast is feeling the same in the UK.

Oh my goodness KAN was a blast – there were around 250 people at Knit August Nights Knitting Retreat in Napier, NZ this year. I taught a class on Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed trying shawls on everyone in m stall for the rest of the weekend. I’ll be back next year – will you join me?!

I splurged on lots of new yarn to fill up my design stash :)

Superstar from Vintage Purls just might be the perfect cardigan yarn yet

I grabbed a couple of edible “ice cream sundae” skeins from Spinning A Yarn

To my surprise my Big Dotty patterns sold out! It’s put me in the mood for more big cosy wraps

I brought home three skeins of fantastic aran yarn from Maniototo – remember I interviewed Mary in Episode 25?

Happy Go Knitty yarn is always a treat and I stocked up on her beautiful Silk/Merino

I’m so looking forward to a new Rock n’ roll wrap with the grunge yarn I bought from Jo at Meraki Studios

And, of course I had to buy “just a little bit more” from Eden Cottage when I got home – perfect English colourways

What a treat to receive my yarn swap from Norway! I love the Selbu Spinneri & Huldra I was given

We’re still knitting away on our Lisette shawls in the Ravelry group – come join in! The KAL finishes at the end of the month.

As usual, my theme song is by the very talented Mr Roberelli

Have a happy weekend!
