"Active Blogger Award" - will I never receive...

No, I cannot hope for that award, if there is any...
I am back in 'study-hell' - well that is how it feels at the moment anyway. Sorry for moaning, but it has all got the best of me.

So, even if I don't have much inspiring 'stuff' to show off, I keep my blog as it is my little window to all you other VERY inspiring ladies out there. I do call in at time and I so enjoy you all.

Something, has been positive though. As a birthday pressie to myself, I went to a one day spinning course at Handweavers Studio - and had a wonderful day. These modest skeins are the results of my first ever try with a spinning wheel.

The weekend after that I spent the Sunday at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Alexandra Palace nearby where we live. Imagine that, an afternoon all by myself.
Got a few bits and bobs...

Wonderful alpaca from Purl Alpaca Designs - A scarf to come.

Blue Sky Alpaca from Loop, Islington - my very favourite shop was also at the show! Fingerless mittens.


Fun felted balls from Blooming Felt. So handy and quick to buy! X-mas pressies to come.
First try to knit with wire and beads - from 'The Crazy Wire Company'.

And some buttons for my Rosamund's Cardigan. I think I'll go for the patterned ones.

The cardigan is knitted, but it still needs to have the yarn weaved in, be blocked and the buttons sewn on.
And to finish the blog in good style - still moaning - something happened with my camera. Tiny little photos and weird colours and...

Sorry all, I wish you a wonderful time and I promise to be back happier next time!

Jag ser att du också ligger efter och har en hel del att visa. Fina grejor och roligt med spinnkurs, förstår jag.

Exciting to see an almost finished Charlie scarf! Have you managed to complete it? Would love to see a photo of it finished! But I can tell you keep busy... keep up the good knitting.
