    Hi Claire

    What a lovely surprise!! I can’t wait to have a look at all the lovely patterns, the only thing will be what to do! I already have such a long list of things I want to make/have to make for other people (I always seem to make for other people).#

    My address is:

    Thank you again.

      Best wishes

    Hi Claire, great to find your blog through mine! Thanks for saying hello.

    I LOVE Rowan yarns, my in-laws live pretty much next door to them in Holmfirth

    xx Lou

      Hi Lou, Oh WOW Lucky them! A beautiful part of the world to live in & next to Rowan & Holmfirth! I am hoping to visit the Mill in the Spring. I love Cornwall too though ~ we have spent many happy holidays at Trebarwith Strand 🙂

    Oh hello! I’m so glad that I am not the only one that loves Rowan so much! I have an LYS just down the road from me (about 3 miles) and she carries quite a bit!

      Hello, nice to meet you! Thanks for following my blog 🙂 Having a LYS only 3 miles away & stocking Rowan – well that would be very tempting indeed! Luckily I would have to get in a car & drive to the nearest town about 10 miles away to get to a LYS here! Hee hee!

        It is definitely “dangerous” to have her so close to me, for sure, but I like to live on the wild side. 😛 She also carries Marion Foale, which is my other weakness.

    I noticed you had a finished mystery afghan posted, I am doing this afghan as well, they suggested that you put it together using a slip stitch, any idea what that is?

      Hi, I haven’t reached the joining stage yet. Probably worth a google as I know the technique isn’t shown on the Martin Storey video. I know a lot of people have been using mattress stitch and I think I’ll be using that technique myself. Good luck 🙂 x

    Hi Claire,
    I really enjoy looking at your blog, it brightens ny day! When I began knitting in 1985 it was only something you could share with your lys without the invention of the internet. I find it fascinating that knitters can join together round the globe & share their love for knitting!

      Thank you Judy, that’s so kind of you to say and has brightened my day 🙂 it’s wonderful having the internet isn’t it. It’s how I taught myself to knit apart from learning the basics as a child, and if I get stuck with a technique, there is always You Tube…. I’m just back from a family trip to London and feeling inspired by a visit to Loop – such an amazing shop and so many yarns that I’ve never seen before… So many possibilities 🙂 xx

    Hi Claire
    Lucky you! I love visiting yarn shops too…trouble is, I have an urge to buy more yarn (Rowan),& I must have the biggest stash ever, so really have to curb myself😉
