Well, since Mhairi told me to i am updating my blog. I had a little difficulty getting into it mind you, i forgot which e-mail account i used and i also couldn't remember the password so i had to try and reset the account, it took ages, but i did it. I will try to update this regularly but i am a bit useless at that so it might not be regular.

Well i think the most exciting thing that has happened recently was the IKnit day down in London. Karen, Val, Mhairi and myself all travelled down for it and it was so worth it, we had a fabulous weekend. We got to see (and purchase) lots of lovely yarn, we also got to see a great talk by The Yarn Harlot, she was very amusing. We also got books signed by her after waiting in the worlds longest queue. As well as the IKnit day we also got to see a little of London, we got lost trying to find a Wagamama that was about 30feet away from where we started, we went to Liberty, we went out for a fabulous meal after the IKnit day with some of the girls form the Glasgow group and we went to the V&A and met some very nice knitters from Geneva. All in all it really was a super weekend but we were all exhausted and very subdued on the trip home, it was a bit non-stop.

Something else that happened recently was that we were evicted from the regular gathering place of our s&b group. We seemed to have received a couple of complaints and we were taking up a lot of space. We decided that we weren't wanted and we relocated to a local pub for last weeks get together. It was nice enough, there was enough space and plenty of light and a pub quiz to keep us entertained at our complete lack of general knowledge. However, the people at Flava(our regular haunt) have had a bit of a change of heart and have invited us back which is nice, i guess we are not as much of a radical and subversive group as we all thought.

Anyway that's all for now.
