Hello from Scotland!
This week I am on holiday in Edinburgh, my first trip here and so far, I love it! The strangest thing was that this week’s pattern by Georgia Farrell for her “A Built World” Knit Along with Rowan is inspired by a building in Edinburgh so obviously I had to visit and take my knitting with me!
The building in question is The Museum Of Scotland and Georgia has chosen the new extension. I could see why when I got there! What a beautiful structure and the colours in the stone are stunning!
We spent a lovely couple of hours walking around and enjoying the exhibits … I particularly enjoyed the textile and fashion sections. I sat and did a couple of rows of the block while I was there too. My husband took a photo but I can never understand how he manages to make it so unflattering!
This block was a very simple one to do which was lovely for a trip as we went by train so I was able to relax into the rhythm of it on the journey.
We are thinking of maybe doing this KAL in the shop as a course? What do you think? Would you like to come along and knit it with me? We can help each other out, drink lots of tea and talk about holidays! Let us know if you’d fancy this, it will be great for those new to knitting … as long as you can cast on, knit and purl, you can do it … and great if you’ve never done a KAL before and a little scared of doing one!
The clues are out for the next block and I must admit, they had me quite stumped! I got my husband onto it and he worked out that we will be heading to Beijing! Unfortunately I haven’t got a holiday booked for there next week so I will be back knitting at home in Suffolk!
