The weather here has been so chilly for the last few days. But it hasn't been quite as cold as it was on the day we were on location in Lyme Regis the other week!
This is a test shot from the location shoot that I did with Rachel Coopey (for her fabulous upcoming book) and Fyberspates (for the next Scrumptious Collection). We were delighted to be working with photographer Jesse Wild again - he really is a superstar!
I think I'm wearing nearly every possible piece of wool that I own! I'm certainly way over my normal 5-item limit. When it's that cold, anything goes!
Here I am later in the afternoon, wearing slightly less wool... ready to model! Yes, I modelled a couple of designs for Rachel's book, so I can't wait to share those once the book is released. I also seem to have stolen Rachel's Puffin Apple hat, which is a great shade of yellow Shetland Aran from J&S.
It's so much fun getting out and spending time with fellow knitters. These are both going to be brilliant collections, so I'll be sure to shout about them once they are out.
Jim has poached all my knitting time, as I'm making the final sample for the Ready, Steady, Go! collection. It should be off my needles fairly soon, so keep your eyes peeled for the pattern release. His fundraising is going brilliantly - safely over half way to his target with 6 weeks still to go. Do purchase the pattern collection, or make a donation over on his Just Giving page: Jim's Running for Refuge.
