I haven't gone away again
I can't blog about what I'm knitting! I'm entering the competition in June/July Knitting magazine, to design a child's garment. Since I don't like to do things by halves, I'm entering two designs and am currently in the final stages of colouring/photographing/swatching.
I hope you understand I don't really want to blog my ideas at the moment, particularly if they get through to the next round, you will have to go to Ally Pally to vote on them at the Knitting and Stitching Show. If I don't, I'll reveal all in a couple of weeks, which is a lot more likely.
Worst of all, the competition deadline is just a couple of days before the Rowanette Exchange next week, and I'm still on my first sock! I can show you a picture of that one:
The colours in this Natural Dye Studio sock yarn are lovely. I thought the sock was coming out to be quite thick, but I think that's characteristic of any sock with texture.
It's been lovely to read people's accounts of Woolfest. I did hope to go this year, and started planning, but all kinds of family events took it over in the end. Maybe next time...
