Chat abound this week! Catching up is the order of the day. LJ
completed the marathon and her derriere is fine, thank you for
Yarn Shop Day is on Saturday and I am looking forward to diving
face first into The Countess' Tunnock's. That's not a euphemism;
she will have a tower of Tunnock's. If you can't come to
Manchester, why not check out what's happening in your area? If
you're abroad - stage your own Yarn Shop Day.
In Enablers' Corner, I invite you to be enabled to the ME box.

In Scottish yarn news, there's the Loch Ness Knit Fest, 29th Sep
- 2 Oct 2016. Also, get yourself to Pitlochry next weekend, 7th May
at the Atholl Palace Hotel. Dingwall Auction Mart hosts the
Highland Wool Fest on 21st May 2016.
I have some emails from lovely listeners. Props to Westy for

I take a look at The Knitting Goddess' new yarn, Totally British
4ply. It's an 85% Wensleydale, 15% Shetland blend which is grown,
spun, processed and dyed in the UK. It's a great way to access
breed yarns with the added benefit of lovely hand dyed shades too.
I rather like it. It comes in at 400m/100g and retails at £18.50
