Unwind Brighton in Simply Crochet

My pasty pins see the light of day. Sorry not sorry. 

I have a wee bit of exciting news. Last month Faye and I whizzed off to the seaside for Unwind Brighton (were you there? Wasn't it ace?) and this month some of my scribbles about it are in Simply Crochet issue 22.

I didn't blog about Unwind right away as I wanted to save all my creative wordy juices (?!) for the mag. I know it's old news now, but I must say it was a pretty cool event. Glorious venue, big name vendors and enough stunning hand-dyed yarn to boggle the mind. Loved it. I won't ramble on, but instead suggest you pick up a copy and see what you think.

They made me put my face in it and everything

And more importantly, what did I come away with? I was kind of in work mode and was very restrained, but I did arrive home with a bit of sunburn, some Brighton rock (rude not to) and a beautiful handful of Namolio's linen 5ply thread in navy. It's going to be part of a crochet ring pillow for a very special future Mr and Mrs.

It wasn't until I got home and properly read through the programme that I saw the gorgeous Pebble Beach Shawlette. Oh my. I instantly regretted not snaffling some yummy 4ply in Brighton to start it right away. Consider it queued.
