Countdown to Scotland

Well it certainly has been a while since I have had a chance to post anything here. Lots has been happening this past few months. I'll update you on other things later but right now we are in "countdown mode for Scotland".

I'm off on a yarn tour of Scotland and England with 25 other fibery folks on August 30th. We'll only be gone for 12 days but they are all filled dawn to dark with some really wonderful things.

We will be having 3 different workshops - carding, spinning, dyeing at Heriot Watt Textile University, knitting at Rowan Yarn and something at Farfield Mill. Also the British Wool Weekend Show, a Knitter Knatter with some local knitters, a "trunk show" at our hotel with Woolrush & Scottish Wool shops.

We will also be touring several towns and cities Peebles, Edinburgh, Abbotsford home of Sir Walter Scott, Harrogate, York, Halifax and then on to London for a musical and a visit to the I KNIT shop before we come home.

I'll be sure to post a recap of the tour and photos when I get back, but now it is only "three more sleeps" as the grandkids say before I'm off.
