|I loved this statue in Kilmarnock|
My life has been very much in two parts over most of this year - writing and preparing a new CD in the weeks my energy has been good, and lots of knitting, bits of reading blogs and even more reading books during the months when it wasn't.
I've knit lots of pieces both for myself and for my friend Belinda's craft shop and had a much longed for excuse to experiment and have fun with different weights and textures of yarn. My dream has always been to have a go at designing but my knowledge of textiles and drape wasn't great - I've learned a lot. So I suppose that's one thing to be thankful for for a prolonged bout of whatever it was I had/have.
The focus of this next winter is going to be rest and health but hopefully with enough energy for new term time adventures with Singmarra, a trip to England to do some gigs in November and our new CD - Together - which will be released in September.
Blogwise I've been going through, and deleting or editing a lot of drafts that for some reason didn't get posted, so I'm feeling a little bit prepared for the next few weeks at least.
But for now, cough cough achoo - back to bed.
Have a lovely week and a great start to the Autumn.
