It's been a combination of lots of challenging things going on at work, a couple of weekends away which I will tell you all about in my next post together with it being the time of year when if I'm away at the weekend I have no chance whatsoever of finding any natural light to photograph anything as I leave for work in the dark and come home in the dark.
Anyway, less excusifying and more knitting I hear you cry so, anxious as I am not to disappoint I have got some rather exciting news to share with you.
You may have seen that Gerard Allt from Iknit has just brought out a book.
I popped into Iknit the other day and bought my copy which Gerard kindly signed for me.
He also asked me to sign his copy! Yes, I have had my first pattern published in a real live book! Look! Count the exclamation marks!!
Allow me to introduce the Hearth and Home Mitts.
I am particularly amused by having them modelled by an apparently hunky man.
I'll be back soon to let you know what I learned from Lucy Neatby and to show you why I was very glad of my warm knitwear when I visited my family in Wales. There may also be mitten progress photos....
