As if this beautiful weather wasn't enough to lift the spirits, I have just seen my crochet bits and bobs gracing the pages of Folksy's online magazine 'Frankly'. When 'Frankly' asked me if I would like to be included in their 'meet the maker' feature, I leapt at the chance. Those of you who read my blog know only too well how much joy I get from crochet and all things crafty. If I can give others a little insight into my yarn filled world and maybe inspire them to pick up a hook then even better. I am a huge fan of Folksy, it is a great showcase for some of the wonderful crafters the UK has to offer, ideal for an original gift too!
And just to avoid any confusion, yes, the Sara Bratby they refer to is me! Despite being married to The Sicilian for 11 years now, I still haven't changed my email address, so my maiden name 'Bratby' has a habit of sneaking in here and there!
Well, I musn't dawdle, we're off to Whistler tomorrow - I have a list as long as my arm of last minute jobs, but before I go I thought I'd give you a quick glimpse of my current project.
Inspired by Jill and Jane at our Wednesday Wool Workshop, I've picked up my precious cone of Habu 'Stainless Steel Wool' and combined it with some left over silk yarn from the fabulous girls in Nuremberg (which, if I'm not mistaken, is also available at Loop London now) and a light sprinkling of Rowan Kidsilk Haze. This gossamer light wavy chevron scarf is a gift for a special girl in Canada, so I'll be finishing it off on the plane over! Nine or ten hours should do it, don't you think?! xxx
