merry knitting christmas

It reassuring to know that the Catholic Church is still promoting hatred, especially at this festive time of year.

I shouldn't let it but it does upset me very much that these people are allowed to make speeches like these.

It's ironic that we are such a threat to humankind, I've never heard of any homosexuals going to war and killing lots of people because of their prejudice and hatred of people who don't believe the same things.

Merry knitting Christmas.

knits to share and care, part 2

In my excitement, I didn't write very much in my last post. There was much I should have written.

Craig and I are extremely excited that the book is out. The decision to use only my name on the book now seems odd. Everything that I do is entirely a collaboration with Craig. This book is no different. This book is By Gerard Allt and Craig Carruthers.

The book the sum of it's parts. The book would not have happened were it not for the talents of the many designers included in the book.

Thank you, designers, for your contributions. I think we have made a really good book. 

Thanks also to Judith and her team at Fil Rouge Press. Your energy, even during crisis, was flawless and inspiring. You'll be glad to know that I Knit London has sold lots of copies already.

thanks again to everyone. I can't wait for the next!
