Knit Ireland photo essay

Today I'm delighted to announce the lucky recipients of Woolly Wormhead's Classic Woolly Toppers.  Many congrats to Kiki who has won the hard copy (could you please email me your contact details before Saturday 6th, when the prize goes to the reserve winner?) and to Debbie, who'll be receiving the ebook in her Ravelry library shortly. Enjoy! The numbers were picked by a non-knitting guest on our Knit Ireland tour. The absolute favourite was Sumner, followed closely by the Camden cap, with the beautiful Ravine coming in third. Many thanks to everyone who entered the draw.

You may have noticed I haven't been very active on the blog recently, mainly because for the past ten days we've been travelling around Ireland with a bunch of twenty-five lovely people. The tour ends on Friday, but meanwhile as I'm strapped for time, I'll post a couple of photo essays to give you a flavour of some of the things we've been up to.

  1. I had fun choosing this particular painting online that now hangs in my downtown office, from, who sells canvas prints of art masterpieces. While the original is treasured in some art museum in England, my print, of this painting by Edward Burne-Jones is very much appreciated by my staff and clients. The print quality is really excellent.
