Well a month has gone by without me writing anything about my trip to Marseille. It was amazing, meeting up with lots of lovely knitters from lots of different countries and Nancy's workshops were fantastic. She was a great teacher and kept us all in check when we talked too much...which of course wasn't too often.
I did knit the ugliest thing I have ever intentionally knitted at the sock workshop, what do you think?

This is my yet to be blocked shawl sampler, I used Natural Dye Studio sock yarn for both classes and they were much admired.
When I got back, either in the car or when I was asleep, I trapped a nerve in my back, this made doing all the things I like, computer, spinning, knitting, almost impossible.
It is much better now but I am being really careful.

My Mum has just been to visit and the weather was awful, so now that she has left the sun is shining!

I am currently knitting Tempest in some Posh Yarn Lei in a lovely green colour.
And this little thing came to stay and so far I think he kind of likes it:0)
