I’m emerging from the thick fog of full-time and not-terribly-fulfilling work and slowly working my way back into a world of textiles and textiles and more textiles. I promise!
One step on the way towards this was a trip to London yesterday with two local crafty friends to visit the hallowed ground of Loop, Cloth House & Liberty. One of them had hardly ever been to London and had one of those all-too-familiar theories of London being noise, dirt and general unpleasantness. Don’t even get me started. I lived there for seven years and LOVED it. I didn’t love the rent prices which is why I am no longer there, but London, I still love you. Having said that, Loop didn’t exist when I lived there and Liberty had a bigger and better haberdashery department – it seems to have shrunk more every time I visit. I thought crafts were on the up?
I can’t complain too much about Liberty as they do stock my book, and for that, I adore them anew. Plus they have fabric with dominoes. And now, so do I. At least I have 0.5m.
Anyway, my point here was merely to tell you about a new knitting book I spied in Loop, not to ramble on at length and anything and everything else – although I am procrastinating book proofing which might explain it.
On my Christmas list now!
Ok, getting back to my own book now.
