It’s the start of November so its time for our Talamh KAL to get started. There have been a few people who have gotten started already but there’s lots of time for everyone else to catch up! Post all your questions there, even if it is just help with yarn choices. It is a big help getting getting other view points and opinions.
Up to this point the patterns in the Four Seasons booklet have only been available together. However by the end of this week you will be able to buy all patterns (except Tine) individually for $5.95, so if the only pattern you want is Talamh you’ll be able to get it then.
On a totally different note, I was up in Dublin last week for the Knitting and Stitching show. Rather than go up for just the day I went up on Thursday night and got to go out for dinner with some pals from This is Knit. We went to a delicious Italian restaurant, so very yummy! (Of course too much chatting and good food meant we ended up staying up way too late!).
At the show on Friday I got to meet lots of new people, Stephanie from The Yarn Room was at her stand with mountains of lopi, I had spoken to her before but this was our first time meeting. Laura Hogan had a stand upstairs and we spent ages chatting knitting, she spins and hand dyes yarn for sale on etsy. I picked up a ball of Drops Nepal at the Pippablue stand. I had been looking at this particular colour for several months and just couldn’t decide online if the shade veered too far into the gaudy end of the spectrum.
Even though it was just for one day I was tired for a full 24 hours afterwards, a full day on my feet with that big a crowd just wipes me out!
