It’s been a quiet summer for us in our respective corners of the globe.

I’ve been on Arran most of the time, enjoying the weather, which though changeable has offered enough bright sunshine to satisfy my Scottish soul and enough rain to nourish the garden.

I’m working on a book for A & C Black Publishers called “Practical Weaving” which does what it says on the cover. It’s an amazing opportunity to review what I’ve done over the past few decades and pass the knowledge on.

Jill has spent the summer running the My Kids Time website and arranging and supervising playdates and sleepovers for her two gorgeous girls. Not that I’m a biased Granny or anything!

Louisa sat her State Medical exams in Alabama and she and Chris are looking forward to a move in the next year so that she can complete her Residency to become an MDPhD.

Simon is back in Lima working for I’m living vicariously for the moment through the descriptions of his adventures and thinking about “when not if… ..” I can go and explore for myself.

I would especially like to visit the The Centre for Traditional Textiles to see the work that is being done there with children to preserve their heritage and teach the textile crafts.

The colours are exquisite and I get itchy fingers just looking at the yarns. You can purchase their work through their website.

We hope you’ll enjoy our Pockey Competition and will take advantage of our Curriculum Material.

Meanwhile as the seasons turn and the knitting needles come out - Happy Knitting.
