Let's talk about the Fashion Show first. Debbie Bliss is doing her second Spin A Yarn Fashion Show which is being held at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey, Devon on Thursday 1 December. You need to contact Spin A Yarn for tickets. These fashion shows are great fun with a chance to see the designs up close and even try them on after the show. There is also good food, drink and lots of knitters.
This time my designs and the designs of Claire Crompton are being shown alongside Debbie Bliss designs. Isn't that exciting? I can't believe my designs will be sharing the cat walk with an internationally renowned designer like Debbie Bliss. Debbie Bliss herself will be attending and I will be there too.
If you're coming to the Fashion Show you'll be able to see lots of my designs including
The Midnight Stole:
I've also got 2 designs due to be published this week. You can pre-order the Jurassic Coast Scarf now. It'll be published on Thursday (same day as the fashion show) as part of The Amazing Luxury Knits Collection.
And I'll be publishing the Grace crochet scarf on Wednesday or Friday (and yes, it'll be in the fashion show too). I've got a new Christmassy version I finished this morning. I did most of this in the car to/from Bristol/Bath yesterday:
Grace takes just two skeins of Louisa Harding Grace Hand Beaded. The red/white version takes exactly 2 skeins. The green version below is slightly longer and takes 2.5 skeins. I've written the pattern for 2 skeins so it'll be the length of the one above which is worn doubled.
Spin A Yarn next term too. The workshop timetable will be out soon and I can't reveal the date till then. If you run a yarn shop or knitting group you can book me to teach the Grace workshop or any other workshop ofcourse.
The Grace Scarf is now available to pre-order. Purchase it now and you'll get the pattern automatically when it's published in a few days.
I'll be teaching at Spin A Yarn this week too. On Tuesday I'm teaching Continental Knitting. If you fancy joining us, contact the shop to book.
I did mention I've got deadlines this week too so I'd better get back to knitting.
Will I see you at the fashion show?
