This weekend Neil, Dawn and me have taken the shop to Cottenham for Textiles In Focus . We are now two thirds of the way through and all three of us are tired. It has been very busy and good fun. We've had time to catch up with  friends and of course Dawn and I have made a few purchases.
 The stall next to us is Boo's Attic, run by Clare who hand dyes the wool she sells. The wool is gorgeous and a delight to knit with, I know this because it was one of my purchases. Clare has got some beautiful shawls hanging up and I obviously need a new shawl. If you fancy making one for yourself the pattern can be found here and is called Radiance Shawl by Helen Stewart. It's very easy to make, no complicated stitch patterns.

 I've nearly sewn all the ends in on my blanket, it hasn't taken as long as I thought it would. Hopefully I'll get it finished this week.

If you're planning a visit to Textiles In Focus tomorrow then do pop by our stall and say hello.

Oh that shawl looks good - Dawn says she hasn't had time to start hers yet.
