What happened?

Where have the last few weeks gone and what happened to my blogging mojo? I guess my blogging mojo took a break in the summer heat. But it's time to get back to it.

It's been a busy summer so far and I'm looking forward to a three week break in September. I've got a lot of knitting done this summer. We've had a lot of hot weather and my office gets too hot in the afternoons so I've been sitting outside knitting.

I've finished a pair of socks for Emily. I ddidn't get a completely finished photo but here they are nearly finished.

I've designed and knitted a new shawl which I'm hoping to release this week or next week. It's looking good!

At the moment I'm working on a new design for a magazine in one of my least favourite fibres - mohair. The fluff that sticks to my clothes drives me mad but it's the right yarn for this design and it's going to look beautiful when it's finished which will hopefully be sometime this week.

I've been teaching too. This month I taught a workshop at The Knitting Corner in Lichfield and while I was there I got tempted by some goodies - a skein of sock yarn from Easy Knits which I may cast on for a pair of socks for my trip to Spain next week. I also got some Knit Pro Royale circular needles as I've heard a lot of good things about them. Last time I knitted with wooden circulars I broke them so I've got to be careful this time. And I got a cute pair of scissors. 

Last Saturday I taught a workshop at Wool Palette in Plymouth. Barbara of Wool Palette hosts workshops at The Royal William Yard which is an old naval yard which has been transformed into restaurants, galleries, shops and apartments. My next workshop in September will also be for Wool Palette - Carlyon Bay Shawl.

Caroline from Georgeous Yarns in Cornwall was at my workshop and brought me these gorgeous goodies. Caroline does naturally dyed yarns and I've been wanting to knit with her yarns for a while so I finally got around to choosing some beautiful skeins. I'm thinking I may cast on for a shawl to knit on while I'm on holiday next month. I also got a bottle of  my favourite wool wash Soak.
