It's been a colourful weekend.
And although the phone-photos aren't all in focus, I'm not sure that matters.
A good friend got married.
And the Annual Gathering of the Scottish Guilds of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers took place at Battleby, the HQ of Scottish Natural Heritage.
The first speaker was Ruth Lee, author of Contemporary Knitting.
You can see some of the bracelets on the second row of her online gallery. She described her methods for knitting with wire and talked about the history of the Yorkshire Dales knitting sheaths which were often engraved/carved with personal messages which may have been from the maker (probably a husband) to the knitter (his wife).
She brought felted scarves, wire knitting, and best of all, her sketchbooks.
Who could fail to be inspired?
