Just a quick one, to say what a lovely time I had last night at the Debbie Bliss talk. Debbie was brilliant, very interesting and engaging (and sharply witty), and she'd brought a mountain of garments from recent collections showing off different styles and yarns. Which we all tried on merrily. I left very inspired to make some new items (and also bought some absolutely gorgeous Koigu sock yarn, madly expensive but SO LOVELY, it's possibly going to be knitted up into a present for someone but I have to establish just how much they like raspberry pink in case I can keep it as a present for myself!). Also was so nice to meet other knitters and spend a few hours with some extremely friendly, like-minded women. All rather excellent, I just wish I'd taken my camera.
