A long week

This week has been a big one, some good, some not so good. Lots of driving but not a lot of knitting, so photos are a little thin on the ground today. There are a few though.

On the needles:
The chunky yarn from last week is on the needles today. In fact, it is almost off the needles,;but I lost badly at a game of yarn chicken and am about 2 feet short of making it to the end of the bind off. I will rip back and rework over a slightly smaller circumference to give me some spare yarn.

Almost on the needles is some freshly purchased yarn. I picked up some lovely sock yarn at Bakewell wool gathering and am excited to get started with it.

Off the needles:
Some off the other chunky yarn is now in cowl format. These are new patterns, so unfortunately no pictures yet, perhaps for next week.

Designer business:
The partner pattern to the "How shall I warm thee?" mittens is now out. "Let me count the ways" is a cosy colourwork hat that uses the same motif to make a matching set.

Both patterns are available on Ravelry, with a discount price of £5 for the set, no code needed, just add both to your basket and Ravelry will take care of the rest.

Shop talk:
One of the busiest parts of the week has been the annual trip to the Bakewell wool gathering.

It was lovely to meet customers in person and to chat with fellow stall holders. Bakewell is always a superb show and we look forward to going again next year.
