Not only do I have a fully functioning camera again, I actually have something to post about too. I only picked up my replacement camera yesterday so I haven't had time to really find out how to use it, but I didn't let that stop me taking lots of photos at the 'Inspirational Knitting' workshop that I went to today. Run by Suzie Johnson in the Uni campus library this was a really nice way to spend a day- took my mind off all the other things I need to be doing right now and re-acquainted myself with knitting needles and (posh) yarn.
I went for a fairly classy combination, but mainly because someone else had beaten me to the hot red that I had my eye on.
Then we moved on to the surprisingly complicated task of making balls of multi-coloured, multi-textured yarn. Lots of us could be heard counting out loud at this point. Suzie provided inspiration by showing us images of work by Kaffe Fassett, and assuring us it was really easy to knit like him.
A selection of Suzie's produce...things to inspire us to make our own masterpieces.
And here is mine! It's as if Kaffe himself had popped in and done some knitting. Ok, maybe he was drunk and blind and couldn't remember how to count when he was doing it, but it's sort of the same.
