Moving times

We've moved house. We've been packing for what feels like months and a few weeks ago was M-Day. I've been so pre-occupied with this move that blogging has been out to the back of the agenda. Then I remembered my blogging bonanza of August. I loved it, so here we go, blogging via e-mail, how did I forget, it's so much easier.

In between the moving (quite literally) I've also had two great workshops. The first was a Granny Squares beginner workshop at the Vintage Retreat. We were looked after very well with copious amounts of tea & cake, the tea rooms at VR are lovely.

The second workshop was at 78 Derngate. We were treated to a fantastic tour of the Rennie Mackintosh designed house, a scrummy afternoon tea not to mention several hours of really good crochet & yarn chat. In fact it was so good and the ladies were so engaging I forgot to take any pics!

This month has also been busy because I've been, commissioned I guess is the word, to write the UK Hand Knitting Association's newsletters. It hasn't been terribly smooth sailing but I think we are now there and I'm really enjoying the writing and photo editing. 

Last month also went to London to meet up with my Uni ladies (plus a few hubbies & bubbies). We went to the National Gallery's Facing The Modern exhibition. Not only was it a rare opportunity to see lesser known works by Oskar Kokoshka & Klimt, it also btought back lots of university memories having been curated by one of our old (she's not old quite the opposite, but it was a while ago, you know what I mean) professor Gemma Blackshaw.

I'll leave you with a photo of the big blue cock of Trafalgar Square.
