What's on my needles - August 2017

This area of the blog is really just a journal of what I am working on or what I have completed. Also I will talk about events or yarns that have caught my attention.

I have recently completed my Fireflies Rising Shawl designed by Helen Stewart from @curioushandmade This was a KAL for The Great London Yarn Crawl on Saturday the 9th September. I think this might actually be the first time that I have completed a KAL before an event.

Fireflies Rising Shawl

I used Hill View Farm Yarn: Opulent in 'Shades of Rouge' colour-way. The border is knit in Madeleine Tosh Yarn. ( I can't remember the colour-way).

On Saturday I will be at The Great London Yarn Crawl 2017. I have volunteered to be a route host and I am really looking forward to it. I have never been and it sounds like so much fun. I mean... like minded wool addicts, together, on a tour of London yarn shops... it sounds perfect to me.  I will let you know all about it next week.

Thanks for visiting...
