What we're working on:


Allison has finished Welcome to the Flock by Julia Farwell-Clay (except for the grafting!), in Townhouse Yarns Camden Tweed. She had a traumatic experience with a mis-counted cast on for the Twist Pullover by Cecily Glowik Macdonald, which has since been rectified, and made some progress on the Toddler Hoodie she's been working on for a while.

Rachel is still working on the Coffee Date with Mark Ruffalo shawl, and the rows are getting really really long. And she's been doing a bit of spinning.

We recap our trip to Wales and the gloriousness that was this year's Wonderwool Wales. As well as the downside of large and busy festivals.
