Look What Susan Did
I wanted to share this photo.  The person who created this wonderful blanket could not crochet at all a couple of months ago.  she has been coming to me for one to one crochet lessons and has created this wonderful knee rug.

I just re-felted a bag I made a while ago.  It was knitted then felted in the washing machine but was rather big and the handle a bit 'bouncy'.  Anyway  I rather nervously put it in the washing machine for another ten minutes and - bingo - it is perfect and i have now used it several times this week!  The perfect size for an A4 file which was the original intention.

Now 1 am off to Gorgie City Farm Edinburgh as I am delivering a spinning workshop to Gorgie Spinners tomorrow with lots of yummy new alpaca for them to spin, in four different colours.  Can't wait to get my hands on it too...

Meanwhile look out for the really exicting news on Monday...

Woolfish retreat
I am off to another knitting retreat at Woolfish this month.  Louise's house is wonderful and St Abbs is lovely...
Before we all made napkin rings to use when we shared meals.  Mine now lives in my lunch box along with the cloth napkin I use when eating lunch in my car.  Every time I use it, it reminds me of the lovely time I had and the friends I made...mine is the turquoise one third from the right.
