look, I made that

I recently discovered a blog called Knit a Year where the writer is aiming to knit a minimum of 2 rows everyday for a year so I offered up some of my handspun remnants and asked for a contact address. Don't you always find that its a small world? although the writer lives in London it turns out that we met a few months ago at my regular knit night in Nottingham when she was visiting family and friends!!!

 Anyway, she has been knitting with some spindle spun Merino with felted flowers and you can see the results of this and the other threads over the next few days on her blog. This reminded me that I have a knitted sample of the same yarn so here it is...
