On the needles - garter stitch blanket

Went to visit The Natural Fibre Company mill in Launceston (Cornwall) yesterday whilst on a visit to my mum.

Amazing how much machinery & how many processes go into producing a ball of wool! VERY educational.

Bought a load of natural UK wool and started making a garter stitch blanket for home - the different breeds give a stunning variety of neutral colours. It's going to take a while - finished size is King size. This is what I knitted up last night - about a square foot...

On the needles - Scree

3 weeks in (in between City&Guilds samples). Back nearly finished. Rowan Bamboo Soft is soooo good to knit with!

Crochet packaging

Kate Jenkins' crochet packaging is absolutely awesome.  The Golden Syrup wins it for me :-)
