I hate to make you cringe on a beautiful morning like this, but we have been shocked to hear of a knitting related accident, which must be prevented from happening again.
PYF now has a library for public use. We have collected craft books, embroidery and knitting patterns for many years and have had some generous donations. Here are a few of the shelves!

You may remember, dear reader, that last easter time, there was a lot of rabbits.

Hedgehog sprung to life when he grew pins, and leapt on our Rosemary.

Sometimes our creations don't always turn out how we expect, and it can be such a lovely suprise.

It's Fashion Week Tuesday and we've seen a lot of good looks already. Last night I had the pleasure of being kissed by a man wearing Monet's Water lillys in the form of a foam rubber mutton sleeved bolero with skinny black jeans.
Here is David Bowie's fashion.

I've written about tumble dryer filters before, but I need to bring it up again. We've always found them beautiful, but short of a use, until now.
Trevor Pitt is possibly the only man on the planet that understands the connection between 17th century philosophical gatherings, knitting circles and a trip to the suburban hairdressers. To experience Trevor's refreshing outlook on the world of craft, you might like to take a trip to Birmingham, where his knitting salon is working on a knitted harvest festival as part of ArtsFest in Victoria Square, Birmigham, 13-14th September.
If you are like me, love a disco but feel the need to continue some sort of textile production on the dance floor, then Wool and Dance could be the party for you.

The little brown rabbit in the window invited me for tea this morning. She told me of her concern that people in London Town walk past shop windows so fast that they fail to notice small being's like her. The Glass Pingle dressed her in a lace ruff with a thimble for a crown, which she wears under the paper foliage.

Knitty Gritty, the new book for beginner's knitting by Aneeta Patel, will be on sale at Prick Your Finger from tomorrow, Wednesday 10th September.
If you are heartless enough not to come to the launch of Anita's book 'Knitty Gritty' at PYF tomorrow night, then why not hang out with these cool people instead?!

Miss Fleur Oakes of the Glass Pingle will be hosting an evening class on the first Wednesday of every month, from 6-9pm called "Get it to fit, love it forever!"
Louise and I went a bit deaf over the last week. We had blockages in our sinuses and ended up shouting at each other. The washing machine's drainage pipe had a blockage as well. It was clogged up with limescale and lanolin, from washing hand spun.
Help came from Miss Fleur Oakes, the Glass Pingle, who whilst putting up a fantastic show in the shop, calmly suggested that Bicarbonate of Soda might help. So with a long piece of wire, we rodded pipes and listened to buzzing in and out of our ears.
Then Fleur invited Bruce Gilbert from Wire to our party, and we listened to him talk about noise.
