Thanks everybody for your comments recently.
I love red, and have used a lot of it recently as I bought a cone of it from Jamieson & Smith a few years ago. The 4 corners crescent has used up the last of it – this pattern will be a test knit at some stage, as there are some issues to be sorted out.
The scarf in the last post is called Atlas and will be published soon, I’m going to do another swatch of it in a different colourway first.
Mini will do anything when she hears any of the following: “special treat for Mini”, “special for Mini”, or simply “spesh”.
Recently I was delighted to meet a group of American knitters travelling in Ireland with Amy Detjen – I worked with Amy on a Knitcircus pattern a few years ago. Here’s a collage from the day (click the image for a bigger version of the image):
