World wide knit in public day
Not that I need an excuse to sit and knit :-)This spinning lark seems to have been my obsession for a while and just when I think my knitting skill are sufficient for my needs ie basic grounding in knit and purl, someone throws a challenge in my face!!
So we packed our bags and headed off to Nottingham Contemporary Cafe which has become a favourite with us. Fellow Raveler Wikkidknitter produced this ball of mystery fibre
and said 'you should knit this pattern next' Ok, lets have a look at it,
see what I mean about a challenge, isn't it pretty!!!! the patterns is echo flower shawl by Jenny Johnson Johnen and I think it will be on my needles at some point soon.
We spent the afternoon quietly knitting and spinning on drop spindles, drinking tea and catching up with the gossip. It wasn't until we were on the way back into town that we realised that we hadn't a photo of us!! But I have got a very blurrey photo of me spinning in a bar in Nottingham two weeks ago so that will have to do.
Thanks Peter, I had a great time and hopefully will do it all again real soon :-)
Just one more thing, LOOK what they have done to our council house, is this the biggest England flag in the country?
I hope you all have a good weekend and find time for a cup of tea and a few moments relaxation
