October was another enjoyable month.
First of all, the half yearly meeting of the International Guild of Knot Tyers at the Blue Lias Inn in Warwickshire, by The Grand Union Canal. A wonderful venue, and we were very well looked after. Some stayed in local hotels, and some of us camped in our caravans and campervans. Lots of ideas and tricks shared, and I’m particularly grateful to Jeff Wyatt (not for the first time) for teaching me how to tie a globe knot around my fingers.
Then there was the Braid Society AGM weekend, held at Wokefield Park, near Reading (a mere 20 minute drive – what a nice change). A great group of (mainly) ladies, and I made lots of new friends, being relatively new to the Society. There were three workshops held over two days, and I opted to learn some new techniques and ideas using a marudai.
End of the month … preparing November’s newsletter, again with some great ideas from clients and friends.
