Yesterday I went to IKL's I Knit Day 2008 - it was wonderful. Not just the knitting people, old and new friends, but the marvellous atmosphere. And the opportunity to buy more yarn, of course. The weather today is dismal, overcast and drizzly, not the best day to take photos! As there's a few photos, I've made them smaller, but they're clickable!
Namaste bag from Purlescence.

Alpaca,cashmere and silk sock yarn from The Natural Dye Studio
Sheepy cups, badges and keyrings from Herdy
and finally, a silent auction on the Knitting & Crochet Guild stand.
But another special and more exciting thing happened yesterday. I am now a great aunt!
Baby E, taken from a mobile phone!
And here she is with the new grandad (my brother) and one of her new uncles.
She's the first of the next generation - everyone's shifted up a level! My parents are now great grandparents and my siblings are now great aunt and great uncle. I can't believe my brother is a grandad now. It seems like just yesterday when his daughter was born. In fact, every time I think of her I'm seeing her newborn face, with a punk rocker hairstyle. Must dig out her photos to compare!
