where's all the knitting gone?

I had a great birthday on Wednesday. I love being in the shop and so many people who came down came wished me a happy birthday and it was so nice - thank you all.

I got great presents! Lots of cake, obviously and lots of booze - perhaps most obviously. I love my spinning wheel. Craig is brilliant and it's the perfect gift. I was awake at 6.30am , although I was quite squiffy when I went to bed - and was spinning away for ages. Perhaps not spinning properly but I have some time available at Camp Bestival where the rather marvelous Alix will hopefully give me some tuition.

I wish that I could post more about knitting here but the only knitting I've done recently has been for this. So I can't show you any! I'm very excited about it, though.

I have other very special news. Last Saturday I was elected as Vice Chair of The Knitting and Crochet Guild. I am very excited about this new string to my bow and I can't wait to get to work! But before that you must all become members straight away.

Congratulations! I'm already a member. Spinning is addictive, even worse than knitting.....

I'm already a member, too - and I am glad to see you getting involved. Too often the newsletters feel like internal debates within a coffee klatsch that doesn't take new drinkers.

Congrats, Gerard. Don't forget, every time you leave the house now the mantra should be "keys, money, phone, KCG memberships forms ..."
