Lisa Anne's square is knitted with our favourite red Wensleydale Longwool. (She bought some more of it to knit a cardigan.) The idea of attaching text to squares came after experiencing knitting circles in LA where everyone discusses shows on television. Not having a television, she fancied discussing something a bit more in depth.
Then we found ourselves at the Derek Jarman Award ceremony, where there were lots of canopes. We weren't allowed to take our drinks into the cinema, we had to leave them on this table. Lisa Anne had the genius idea of identifying her beer with a bit of red wool. TOP TIP!
Lisa was wearing one of her jumpers. On the front it said

We are delighted to welcome Anna Von Wilkinson into the fold of PYF. Anna is a talented lady who managed to ply a kilo of 'Lavender Puff' on her first day. I would like to apologise to Anna for making her pose for a photo when she was more than ready to go home.

Louise took down the old storage systems and we now have a stage / studio, where we shall make a long thin collapsible table with two benches either side, which we can use for classes, lunches, making, discussions and teas.

Last night we are talking at Howies ( the totally cool ethical clothes store) on Carnaby Street.
Howies dedicated the Beastie Boy's 'She's Crafty' to us on their blog and were flattered and excited!
They started off by being a lovely audience, but then we discovered they could make the evening even more interesting, so we ended up having a good old chat and discussion. Everyone there was deeply concerned about the lack of use of nature's very own high tech fibres.
Howies have a water fountain in their shop and you can use it any time you are passing. How kind. On their clothing labels, it says 'Buy land, they don't make it any more'. How cool. Thank you Howies, we had a lovely time. Howies do evening talks and discussions on many subjects, with free beer from our friends at Pitfield. Lets all make friends with Howies.

When we in Iceland we drove the length of the country, in the 4x4, over dirt roads of the interior, just to see the Textile Museum. It was well worth it.
