Switzerland is only days away!
On Monday the 24th I leave Shetland and begin my travels back to Switzerland. If you're new around here you may not know that I taught at last years Swiss Yarn Festival and had a blast! Grant came with me and we had such a great time with our Swiss friends Meret and Asita (who also came to Shetland for Wool Week last year, but that is a whole other story!)
This year I am going alone, and I am managing to visit my friend Martha in Basel before the festival as well. I will fly to basil, arriving on Monday evening. Spend a few days with her, then travel to Glattfelden on Friday, ready for two busy days of teaching on Saturday and Sunday. I am so looking forward to meeting my students and hopefully see some of the friendly faces I so enjoyed spending time with last year!
New Patterns This Month
There have been 2 new additions to my Ravelry Store this month! The Heathland Mitts and The Heathland Cowl and come to join The Heathland Hat that was released last year and they have been a huge hit. I've had a few messages to say that they enjoyed this slightly Valentines themed project.
Remember to send me pictures whenever you knit one of my designs, I'd love to shout you out in future blog posts - more details on this below!
Have you knitted any of my designs?
If you have, I want to shout you out!
I am going to shout out a few knitters in each blog post starting in march. For a chance to be included in next months blog post simply send me a picture of your completed knit either on social media or email firstname.lastname@example.org - make sure you include your first name and location so I can give you the credit you deserve!
March Meet the Maker
I am going to take part in this years March Meet The Maker Challenge by Joanne Hawker. I did this a couple of years ago and really enjoyed the promts, so I thought why not! I will be posting everyday making sure each picture and caption relates to that days prompt. It's a really fun one and if you are also a maker, why not join in too?
Speaking of Valentines Day...
I want to say a huge happy Valentines to all my subscribers, followers, and supporters. Thank you for everything you do from cheering me on, liking and commenting, and reading this blog.
I'm sending my love to you! x
