I forgot to mention that whilst we were away someone showed us a copy of Jean Drapers book. Everyone wanted a look and it was clear that it was a 'must have', I nipped onto Amazon and ordered three copies. Even though this was a Sunday, the books turned up the next day, although the postman was a bit confused about who to deliver it to. I know that at least one more person ordered it to be delivered to their home address.
Another brought for show and tell was this
one from Angie Lewin. I don't usually work from plants and wouldn't have given this one a second look. What a mistake that would have been, the illustrations are amazing and I think will be inspirational for some time to come.
So, two tomes I won't have to cart around with at Harrogate :) Did I mention I am going to the Knitting and Stitching Show this week?
