July is a time for chilly mornings, no rain, dusty lawns trying to survive and warm balmy days. Except for the dust (and often smoke from fires), this is a lovely time of year.
I launched my hand crafted pewter shawl pins at the Royal Agricultural Show in May-June and they have been well received. They are beautifully made by a South African jewellery designer especially for Yarn Stash.
World Wide Knit in Public Day in the garden at Tea on 23 was a lovely morning. Kate gave a sock knitting workshop, Adre gave a crocheted beanie workshop and the rest of us relaxed in the winter sun with our needles and hooks and enjoyed all the lovely drinks and eats that Carrie and her lovely staff provided for us. Nothing more special than enjoying a morning chatting with friends. It was hard to drag ourselves away but we will be back there soon - it's a favourite stop on my school run early in the morning!
Also advance warning that we will be at Wings Wheels & Whistles in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday and Sunday 3 & 4 August 2019. Another wonderful way to spend some time with the whole family - lots of interesting hobbies will be there with the wonderful steam trains!
