Broadford skye and better news re te t

Headed over to the island of Skye last night and spent the first night at the forest garden campsite Armadale. Lovely atmosphere in the evening there but really more like wild camping. The first good nights sleep in the tent despite heavy rain. It is now waterproof, gas storm guys which help it pitch better and i finally sussed the condensation problem. Instead of securing the centre pegs of the ends of the flysheet first like you normally would, they are left till last. This helps the tent sit better and means there is,an air gap at either end between the flysheet and the ground. This matches up with the internal vents and it all seems to work well, fingers crossed. Pity neither instructions or youtube videos mentioned that! Arrived at broadford to find a notice saying 'Knit 1 Bike 1 is here 20th july! Bev at the Handspinner Having Fun has pId for my campsite which was lovely and am looking forward to meeting her and doing the workshop there tomorrow at 2pm. Also had a fab time at Heartfelt By Liz in Dalmally over the previous two days and was made to feel so at home. Lovely to see Liz again and get to know Graham. The crocheted flowers workshop was fab and a chance to catch up with friends Sandy and Jeanette who came over specially. Before that was a workshop in Mallaig and more wonderful hospitality from Morag in Mallaig. Great to see the,Ginger knitwear studio and Anna who runs it gave me some great yarn for the project. The Mallaug group gave me,a generous donation for Knit 1 Bike 1 too - thanks folks. Often hard to get o. The internet so will be gaps between entries at least till i am finished with the Islands
