Lets twist again and again

A first for me... no knitting. Number one son is back and loving his new look bedroom - well I couldn't spend all week pining for him (he still hasn't noticed just how much is missing from his room whilst he surveys his new flooring). We've spent the weekend at the Knitting and stitching show in Alexandra Palace - a beautiful setting. Number one son and I spent time at the Relax and Knit tables, teaching people to finger knit and knit - I'm sure you can guess who was most popular!! I am the proud owner of ONE skein of hemp - yes, just one. That's all I bought - a record for me. Ally Pally is like the Harrods January sale to me. Normally I can't wait to snap up bargains and then take the rest of the year paying for them. The yarn just didn't do it for me this year - more on some of the stall I visited later. The beads did though....

Not bad for a beginner. These are my favourite colours.

However, still no knitting. I'm twisting my hair - hence the title of the post. I'm three hours in and not even half done. No sleep tonight!!

I am looking forward seeing you with your new hair and wearing beautyful jewellery.

You're dedicated! I don't think I could cope with a 7hr hairstyling session - hope you finished it all (they twists look great!)

I'm astounded that you only bought one ball of hemp! I didn't even find the hemp stall!

Those beads are beautiful, gorgeous colours. I am very impressed at your yarn self restraint.

Hair is looking great, your arms must really ache after all that.
