Latest missive from Bea, received here at Fibreworks International HQ this morning:
Delighted to be offered the job of World Knitting Correspondent for The Fibreworks. STOP. Will sort out salary and Conditions of Service upon my return. STOP. Am on the Merino Trail on behalf of all our passionate and avid knitters. STOP. Tough job but someone has to do it. STOP. Perhaps you can see why my jumper knitted up so quickly and was so large now. STOP. Obviously something to do with the size of the Merino sheep in these parts. STOP. Thought it might have been my tension at first. STOP.
Please send details of credit card to cover expenses. END

A fabulous rag rug made by Ruth from black, pink and white T-shirts. Such an easy craft, such striking results. Our next class is on Tuesday 4 December if you feel inspired to have a go yourself.
A nursery quilt class took place this Saturday with our tutor Pam.
