While in Edinburgh we visited the National Museum of Scotland which had an excellent display of textile machinery and a small display of Fair Isle knits. Click on the photo to enter my photo gallery.
I’ve also included several photos taken outside Joyce Forsyth‘s shop. We happened across her shop while wandering the streets. Her garments are amazing.
Yes, I am still knitting. I just finished the knitting portion of my Nihon Vogue homework for the next class. We’re working on three garments; a top-down raglan, a round-neck vest and a round-neck pullover. All are in various stages. Unlike most of the other students, mine are in plain old stockinette stitch. Yes, it’s boring but it’s been a busy summer so keeping these first three garments simple has helped me keep my sanity. But, at this point I’m bored to tears and need to find a stitch pattern or colorwork for the next garment. a v-neck pullover with 1×1 rib.
