Wow – September was a busy month!
It was great fun catching up with old friends (when I say “old”, obviously I mean “established”!) and it was nice to see my Mum for the first time in months.
I spent a week in Norfolk with Simon and Ros, in the beautiful and welcoming village of Hickling. A couple of boat trips, a visit to a museum, and also a lesson in Kumihimo! Kumihimo is traditionally used for Japanese silk braiding, and although I have used a marudai for braiding larger stuff (to make lanyards and bell ropes typically), I now know how to effectively tie strands to bobbins – thanks Ros!
The weekend of 6th-7th October is the half-yearly meeting of the IGKT (International Guild of Knot Tyers), so I’ll be catching up with more of my old knot tying friends. A short rest then before the AGM of the Braid Society two weeks later, where I hope to make new friends and learn lots at the workshops being held.
After that? Well, Christmas fast approaches …
