I haven't been posting much. I have been quiet these days , quiet as mouse. Some major changes will be happening at the end of the month and perhaps I have been reserving my energy. I wish you all well for 2013, and may many blessings come your way.

I was so honored to be an instructor at the Needler's Retreat in Gananoque. Of course Debbie Wilson of https://sheepsahoy.com/home/ was our hostess with the mostess! I taught knitting with wire. We made a bracelet , while I gave tips and tricks how to knit with wire. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and that made me very happy. Thank you Debbie for having me. I had a great time.

I went on the road to the Woodstock Fleece Festival with Debbie Wilson of Sheeps Ahoy. https://sheepsahoy.com/home/ It was about a 7 hour drive from Ottawa , but for some reason it went by in a blink. I think it was because the company was so darned good.
One of the highlights was having Anne Blayney ( of the Chawton Mittens http://www.knittingdaily.com/blogs/daily/archive/2011/10/17/what-would-jane-knit.aspx) come to see me and purchase a shawl pin . The picture above is of Anne pinning the peacock blue shawl pin onto her friend's shawl..
