This week has been a busy one for me, here are some of the things I have been working on…

Preparing for new workshops is always a lot of work but also a lot of fun…

…these two photos show preparations for my workshops in Germany at the end of April. I have been invited to the Backnanger Wollfest for the third time. I am really looking forward to catching up with everyone and hearing what they all have been up to during the past few months.

I am taking part in a knit along for the first time in ages. This one is organised by Sarah of Crafts from the Cwtch and it’s not too late to join in. You can find all the details on her blog (link above) or by looking for Ravelry group of same name.

We are knitting a shawl called Miss Winkle, a design by Martina Behm (remember the Hitchhiker shawl), it’s a little unusual with the little loops running along one side of the shawl. I have really got into this pattern and can’t wait to finish it.

On Wednesday the postman delivered a surprise package from a new friend who I have yet to meet in person. Louise and I met via Instagram (such a friendly place), when I posted a photo of a new crochet design for a table runner and she kindly purchased it from me. We have been in touch ever since and this was a lovely surprise and generous gift – thank you Louise. You can find her and her lovely shop in Chepstow/S.Wales, but if that’s a bit far for you to travel, you can browse and purchase her lovely wares here.

I also had a little play with flowers! I am working on a wee design to pretty up my (and possibly your) life. More detail about it soon, I promise.

Have a lovely weekend all, whatever you might be doing!

    Hi Faith,
    thank you for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments. As you have found out, I am a native German, but have lived in the UK for the past 27 years. German is quite easy to learn to speak, but as you already know, the grammar is a real killer. Some things will always stay quite difficult unless you have grown up with it, as there are often no rules that can be applied.
    Are you part of the Miss Winkle knit along? who are you on Ravelry?
    Hope to see you here often
    Heike x

    I have just read the first sentence of your me bit, and realised my, do you speak German thing is a very silly question….sorry!

    I love the crocheted pansy, really pretty, I made some a long time ago and they seemed a real faff, but that one looks more straight forward. I haven’t done much crochet for ages, knitting has my head turned at the moment.

    Do you speak German? I’ve started an OU course for beginners German, I am really enjoying it! But gosh the grammer is hard.

    Your Miss Winkle looks good, I’m enjoying doing it, but have next to no time at the moment, I can’t wait to get on with it.

    Your blog is really lovely!
