Knitting snippets, out and about



Summer seems to have slipped into autumn and time as usual has flown by. Here's an autumnal resume, mainly photos from August through to October with some captions thrown in. 

Spent one Saturday in early October helping these two lovely ladies Barbara and Alex. They were presenting items from the Knitting and Crochet Guild collection at the “Up Country” yarn shop in Holmfirth.


The blanket is a design by Debbie Abrahams, the one featured on the Knitting and Crochet Guild logo. It was a “Mystery Blanket” knit-along in 2011. A kit was available by subscription (but no longer available). You can find details about it on Ravelry but I don’t think you can get the pattern.  



There's been some work done on revamping a Hand Knitted Things pattern, more news on this in early November...


These popular greeting cards with knitted Highland scenes have sold out over at Nanny's Cafe in Sheildaig. More ordered, printed and delivered...


Some walking along the shores of Loch Torridon...


...and sunshine with far reaching views along the loch...



Views from the front door with changing light...





Mobile library visiting...


...well stocked library van with lovely books...



My wise old owl appeared in the September/October edition of Landscape Magazine...


There's been lots of knitting behind the scenes with these shades...


...here's a sneak peak of the finished item which will be revealed here on Wednesday 25th October, part of the Stylecraft Blog Tour 2017...there'll also be a giveaway too. Tune in on Wednesday to participate...

  3. Just catching up here. I love the Homfirth 'Mystery blanket'. And the owls. And of course the pictures of Torridon.
    Cheers, Gail.
