I have had the most wonderful time over the last few days. It has been incredibly busy - well, by our standards - but such fun.
On Thursday we went down to Bovey Tracey in Devon. There is a yarn shop in Bovey Tracey called Spin-a-Yarn, and Joyce, the proprietor, had organised a fashion show of handknits at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen. There were garments from Martin Storey, and also from Alison Crowther-Smith, and some Rowan display garments as well, from other designers.
So many lovely things! - and did I take photos? - no, I did not. I have no idea why not, I certainly should have.
Anyway, it was a very entertaining and sociable evening. I am now very much looking forward to gettting a copy of Martin's new book, Scottish Heritage Knits. There were a lot of garments shown from this book, and they were all stunning.
We stayed at a room over the pub, with an appropriately sheepy view from our window.
Today has been spent knitting as well, with Alison Crowther-Smith and friends. A log fire, good company, lots of knitting - oh, and cake!
By the way, I finished Ross on Wednesday evening, and wore it on Thursday. It was, I think, very successful. Pictures soon....
