Thursday Knit and Natter – Marie Wallin teaches Fairisle

wool week 1-1158 This is just a very quick snapshot of Tuesday morning spending a few glorious hours with the wonder that is Marie Wallin teaching us all the beauty of fairisle, at the Campaign for Wool Exhibition.  wool week 2-1192

I Know I’ve forgotten to take photographs of everyone’s fairisle, I was rushing for a class the other side of London, but I am so glad that I managed to spend a few hours of my life chatting to Marie and other wonderful knitters, some of whom have become my new best friend – you know who you are! wool week 3-1193

I love these vibrant sheep, they were scattered everywhere, and no two were the same colour. wool week 4-1177

And to see the blanket in real life is always a treat.  Now all I need is a really good friend to knit it up for me, ‘laughs’.

I’ll have to pick this post back up later in the week, I am now fast turning into the Mad March Hare, I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date….’

    It was a shame the classes were advertised too late for me to get time off work, I really wanted to go! Did you make the mittens, the pattern was lovely in the advert! 🙂

    I am enjoying reading your blog, and loved your photo of the line full of fresh white washing, flapping in the breeze – that really is one of life’s simple pleasures……
