the new yoga....?

Greetings all,

Sorry not to have posted for a while. I'm still here and I'm still knitting - and at last have started Dad's Christmas Cardigan before december so there is a chance it will get finished.

Just came across this article and though you might like to see it:

Summer fair...

Dear knitting friends,

You'll be pleased to know that I entered in to the spirit of life in the country by finishing and entering a colour work cardigan for the Sheldwich Lees village fair...and I was a little irked to come second to a first-prize-winning set of eggs with stuck on plastic eyes.

Anyway, I share the photos for you all....

....very off topic....

Greetings all,

Some of you may remember that I was working on a cabaret opera based on the true story of the Papin Sisters...well it's on this year in Bath:

Then in Orkney (I'll be stocking up on their marvellous locally-produced North Ronaldsay wool)

Checking in

Dear Friends,

I just thought I'd check in and let you know that I'm still alive. I've been keeping up to date with all of your busy creativity over the last while but things have been busy and hectic and I haven't had the space to say hello - so I thought it was time.

HELP!!!! Moss stitch chaos

I'm knitting a cardigan with a button band edge in moss/ seed stitch. I noticed that I'd done a wrong knit or purl a few rows back and thought I'd just unravel back and redo with a crochet hook....but fixing it doesn't seem to be working and I've got a very sloppy looking bit which looks worse than the original mistake. 8 could rip back the rows but I'm knitting the whole body in one piece and it's a lot of knitting. Am I doing something wrong? HELP!!!!'!!!!!!!!!!!!!
