The children are on holiday and I am working but inbetween my work involves things they can do too. So we went on a trip to The Affordable Art Fair in Battersea, normally I am working there and it was very bizarre to see someone else on *my stand*. The fair is 10 years old and this is the first year that we have not gone, it was great to see old friends, look at art but a relief that I wasn’t working it and a delight that for the first time ever I could take the children. They loved it, we left inspired.
It was the perfect day for walking in the park and only wish that we could have had May with us but one of the friends that came with us has a severe pet allergy so the toss up between a lovely walk in the park without dog or a trip with dog that ends at a&e, well the answer is obvious really.
We ate a picnic, they scrambled around the playground and then we walked back towards the fair so that I could drop the friends home to their respective families when we came upon this amazing wall.
And then just as quick as we’d found it, it suddenly went.
Things feel like that a lot round here at the moment, I am entering the half term workshop programme at work, the term time sessions are having a break and the knit class has ended. The knit class was only 3 weeks long, the idea being that with one skein, the participants would finish a project with support but it turned out on the main to be a knit surgery where each week new works were produced from bags that needed some help. Time is going by so quickly but I have finished my Christmas knitting, unbelievable but true – the photo above shows 3 of the pieces I have made: swallowtail, in sunsilk by sunshine yarns, and two damsons, one in damson and one in winter sky (cashmere) all hand dyed by skeinqueen. Now onto knitting for wemake……
