hectic 2 days and knitting(or not) to Cumbria

its been hectic past 2 days. What with going up to see mum. I tried knitting on way there but no good. velvet coat didn't help needles move smoothly and occasional bumpy road made it worse so no more travel knitting for the moggie:) Mum is ok after fall thank goodness. Long day from 9am to 6pm when we got home. I was really sore. . Knitting tonight I hope, the 2ply shawl almost finished and I want to get done now. Haven't blocked before but this will need it so have to check on ukhk how to do so. Don't want to ruin now I'm almost done and I don't iron normally unless its to fix dyes. Well have you ever heard of cats ironing? I don't think so:)) We much prefer doing arty crafty stuff.

Thought I would come and say hello to a fellow 'witchy' type :)

Glad your mum is ok, poor thing for falling at that age.

Your shawl is lovely but what a pain about the knots. I am a Colinette-lover but have to go steady. Only had Skye (which I love) and Giotto so far but could go mad on their website. Wish I could find it somewhere cheaper.

Merry meet:) have been to your website and love the things you've made Hazel. Have you tried the mill shop at Colinette for yarn? Much cheaper and a delight to the eye

Really sorry to hear about your Mum...I hope she recouperates quickly :)
Whereabouts in Cumbria is she? I am originally from Barrow-in-Furness...
And thank you for your comment on my blog about the scarf...
Take care

Is the millshop where you buy a kilo of mixed yarn for a set amount? I haven't, because I am the sort of person that needs a pattern and a particular yarn. I can't get creative yet, not enough confidence.
