The next 10 days will be very very busy. This weekend I'm off to Dorset to teach Continental Knitting with Norwegian Purl at The Slipped Stitch in Sherborne. I'm so excited at teaching at this gorgeous shop. It's always fun teaching at new to me shops.

Next week we're off to Surrey for Unravel which is the first show of the year for me and one of the three shows I do each year.

Unravel takes place on 17/18/19 February at The Maltings which is a gorgeous venue in the beautiful town of Farnham. I'm hoping we'll have time for a walk around Farnham on Friday morning before the show opens.

These photos are from last year's Unravel. Today I'm busy planning which yarn to order. My order goes in this afternoon. I'm also going through everything else I need to order which I haven't yet. So much to remember. Next week will be all about packing and getting everything ready. 

 At this year's show I will have all my new patterns and yarn to knit them including several colours of Lang. I love knitting with Lang Merino 200. It's a gorgeous soft, silky feeling yarn and is perfect for stripey shawls or lace shawls.

Of course I'll have a big selection of Schoppel yarns including Zauberball, Laceball, Best Of.. and 6 Karat. These colourful little balls of joy are always a favourite at shows. I'll of course have a large selection of patterns as well as copies of my book, Beaded Lace Knitting, Tattysquawk shawl pins, seed beads and crochet hooks to attach the beads to your knitting.

Are you planning a trip to Unravel? The Saturday tends to be very busy and Sunday is the quietest, especially Sunday afternoon which is always quiet at every single show I do. The list of exhibitors this year is very exciting and I'm currently planning my list of must see stalls. 

 So will I see you at Unravel? Do come and say hello!  I love meeting you and I especially love it when people bring me shawls that they've knitted from my patterns. By the way, there's a new pattern coming tomorrow. Do sign up to my newsletter (link below) if you haven't already and you'll get a 30% discount on all new patterns.

I'm coming to Unravel. Alas I shan't be wearing one of your shawls, of which I've knitted two, as I have yet to work out how/where to pin them out for blocking!

Will definitely look out for you.
