Hello from behind a pile of fibre and washing here in the Cheshire Plain. Another bumper episode this week, with a report from the weekdays of the recent UK Knit Camp at Stirling in Scotland. Despite organisational problems and a lack of communication for day visitors, I had a brilliant time. I took classes with Jon Dunn of EasyKnits, Lucy Neatby, Kate Tetlow and Mary Jane Mucklestone.
Photos from Jon’s spinning class…
…and shots of my handspun taken in Mary Jane’s class.
Animal, spun from batts from EverImprovingMe
Navajo-plied fibre from DT Craft & Design bought at Wonderwool Wales in April
I also have an overwhelming desire to make Lucy Neatby’s Bubbles Scarf. Luckily there’s a knit-a-long for the pattern in September.
Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, available from Magnatune.
