This month’s “Knitting” magazine (issue 126) has a lovely write up of the 2013 Knitted Textile Awards, including interviews with all the winners in both categories (including yours truly). Being a bonus issue it also has lots of tempting Spring/Summer patterns in it (I have just started on my second make!) so definitely worth buying.
Nicky Barfoot is also featured in the “Last Word” interview in the current issue (96) of Knit Today, something that my Dad will find especially entertaining as he has always pointed out that I have a tendency to that particular characteristic!
So now to exhibitions and I am excited to say that my work is featured in “Out of the Blue” at Rum’s Eg Gallery in Romsey this month. Four of my knitted “paintings” are on display: “Frankie in Blue”, “Frankie in Ink”, “Frankie”, and “Manu Propria”, as well as three of my hand knitted cushions. As usual the gallery is packed full of beautiful things, all hand crafted by local talent in a welcoming environment with a good coffee shop on the first floor. If you are local I strongly recommend you pay it a visit.
And finally to birthdays. I currently have a house full of wonderful sweet smelling flowers as consolation for being another year older. These roses were from the long suffering husband. Nothing does red quite so well!
