Lots of excitement

there are just so many things to be excitedabout right now and I'm just so busy. Working flat out all week on the new lace stole has paid off as I'm on the last 1/3 of the border andshould finish it tonight. Pixie's version arrived this morning and is being blocked.

I've been busy today trying ot get ready for the KTOG event in Bovey tracey, Devon on sunday afternoon. The event is in it's 2nd year and last year was fab and this year should be even better. There will be stalls including mine, workshops (I'm teaching sock knitting and there will be spinnin and felting) and knitting celebrities, Jane Sowerby (author of VictorianLace Today) and Clare Cromptom, author of hte Knitting Bible will both be there. I've metClare several times before and she's lovely and will be there with her new book which is fab. I'm really excited about meeting Jane Sowerby and I'm hoping she'll sign my VLT book. I'ts the book that made me fall in love with lace and it's such an inspiration. Will I be brave enough to show her my lace though. I'll have several of my lace shawls with me including the brand new Midnight Stole. I'll be selling my yarns and patterns too.

The Ribbon Scarf is selling well and we've already raised $50 for breast cancer. A huge thank you to those who've bought the pattern or any of hte special breast cancer fundraising yarns so far. I'm keeping a record of sales so I know how much to donate to charities at the end of the month. Next week I need to decide which breast cancer charity to donate to. Any suggestions?

No pics today but I will have pictures of the new lace stole over the weekend or onMonday and look out on Monday for lots of pictures from Ktog. If you live in devon or Cornwall then come along for the afternoon, it'll be well worth it.

Have a lovely weekend.

Congratulations on the money you have raised so far - it is a very beautiful scarf.

Wow! What a busy time, Anni ... but sounds like good busy, rather than stressed busy. Looking forward to seeing pics of your new shawl...
