summer sunshine travel


imageimageimageFinally summer has arrived even in the British Isles! The sun is out and the skies are blue, so get your picnic blankets out, flip flop’s at the ready and head off into your garden or nearby park.

This is a perfect time to start a project using summer cottons or linens, like this beautiful linea yarn by Karen Noe. I picked this up last year at the Schwabsburger Wollfest and this is where I am off to tomorrow.

A fabulous feast for any knitter or crocheter, this Wool gathering is organised every year by my friend Claudia of Wollsinn and a colleague of hers. I have been invited to teach a couple of workshops, I am so excited.


After Schwabsburg I am traveling on to Amsterdam to meet my wonderful Instagram and Blogger friend Marianne. This is a real treat as we have long wanted to meet in person, and is the icing on the cake during this otherwise rather business oriented travel week.

I will try and write a blog travel journal every day, hoping to have your company.

My suitcase is almost packed…will I be able to sleep tonight!?!
