And the winner is...

All of you who commented on the Castle post!
It was indeed, Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex. My dad worked there as a Security Officer after he retired! 
So,Sophie, Christine and Fiona - please email me at with your addresses and the weight of yarn you would like and I will post a surprise out later this week. 
Sophie, very impressed by the history lesson!
Carol, text me a colour (reds, blues, pinks, purples) and I'll send you a little surprise :-) 
Have a Continental Knitting Workshop tomorrow at The Knit Studio - so early night for me.

The Four C's

Which do you prefer?
Some of the fab cake at Claudia and Dianne's Housewarming Party, earlier today.

Finished cushion covers from last Sundays' Sewing Workshop at The Knit Studio

Mittens, chilling after a hard day....well, chilling.

Sorry I didn't do my homework - the lamb ate my notes!

Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday Weekend. We have had all seasons here in Newcastle, with sun, rain, hail, winds, frost who knows what is going on! 
Current project on the needles, baby socks and more baby socks for a friend who is expecting twin girls. A great way for me to use up that 'little' bit of left over sock yarn I have in my Stash.

Yes, I am back! and yes, that is a castle!!! But where is it? A little competition to celebrate my return to Blogging after such a long break.

Mmm so let's see what has happened since my last post? My birthday, The Knit Studio's 1st Road Trip to the Knitting Show at Harrogate, Workshops, Christmas, Sarah's birthday, New Year, lots of knitting, parties, adventures and more Workshops, Basketball, too much to write about all at once - so I'll just leave you with a few photos of knitted goodies.

There seems to be a shawl thing going on, down here in Newcastle!
Don't forget the competition!
