Season of mists...

Beautiful morning!  Looked out and saw a whispy mist hanging over the valley:

Had the loom knitting workshop yesterday, with Amanda Bond teaching.  What a morning!  Two ladies signed up just the day before, so although I had bought enough sets for those I was expecting, I was two short.  That'll be fine, I thought, they can share.  Well, of course they couldn't - they all wanted to work on the same size looms.  So, over to Hungerford I dashed, and managed to fine one kit in Crown Needlework, but although I checked in the Hungerford Haberdashery I couldn't get another.  Brought the kit back, so that was one sorted, and then remembered that Sandra in the village is crazy about loom knitting so dashed into East Garston and she very kindly lent us a hook and hoop!

It was a good day though - and I think loom knitting is great for people who can't get on with needles, but less inspiring for people who have knitted for years and are used to needles.
