Celebrating small successes

It’s been that time of year again, the Rare Breeds Show at the Weald and Downland came around for its annual festival of all things farming and woolly. More fleece was donated by my friend in Shetland, this time from Katie the Katmoget: IMG_2465 I battled with the mini-combs and managed not to injure myself, which was a success in its own right!  Eventually I came up with a small skein of fairly lightweight yarn, which the judges kindly awarded a red rosette: IMG_2543 Joy, owner of The Knitting Goddess, and Rachel of My Life in Knitwear have recently run a competition to find an image to use as inspiration for colours in a new mini-skein set. I was delighted to be included in the shortlisted photos with this shot of Bognor Pier: IMG_2466 Plotting new designs continues. Now that there are well-established processes in place to deal with VATMoss I hope to finally self publish some patterns as the autumn progresses. Watch this space…
