I hope you’ve enjoyed summer where ever you are – and if you’ve been in the UK that week of sunshine that you had in July? I myself have been in Vancouver for a few weeks but mostly in the UK. As luck would have it, I had a fantastic month in Vancouver but missed the said week in the UK. The good news is that I’ll be heading back to Vancouver in time for FALL!! And for the KnitCity yarn festival in early October. And maybe Rhinebeck? Or maybe to Barcelona for a knitting festival there? It’s all up in the air at the moment.
Unfortunately, one thing that is not up in the air is that I won’t be at Perth this coming weekend. While I am disappointed at not going, I’m more disappointed because it could have been avoided and I’m going to miss out on meeting a lot of people I had looked forward to meeting. For those that were planning on saying hello, I am sorry that this wasn’t announced earlier. I was asked not to say anything as I was told there would be an official announcement, but it appears that isn’t happening. Please do keep in touch and I will do what I can to remedy this unfortunate situation.
The news isn’t all bad however as I was able to meet Jillian of Mothy and The Squid and she introduced me to Kate of Sealy MacWheely. I’ve gotten footage of both and they will both be featured in an upcoming episode of the show!! I’ve also been able to nurture a few connections that will lead to some great events and collaborations in the near future. And speaking of the show, episode 5 will be up this week!
I’ve also had an amazing visit with Susan Crawford of Susan Crawford Vintage and can’t wait to share all of that as well. That will be a multi-segment exposé as Susan does so much on her farm it will amaze you! There’s lots more to show and tell but you’ll have to stay tuned here and on the YouTube channel for all the details! Here’s a small smattering of pictures …
Now that it’s fall, what’s on your needles? Are you planning on casting on a sweater for the upcoming cooler/colder/freezing days ahead? I certainly am!! And some scarves too! I’m looking forward to seeing what you’re doing so please keep in touch here and everywhere else on social media. If you didn’t know, you can find me as mrhugzzz on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook and ITBTK on Twitter – although I’m not on there that much.
