  1. Knitting has enjoyed a revival in recent years, but this postcard made me smile:-

    Knitting for the RAF
    I can't really see this happening today, but wouldn't it be great? I love the spirit of the 40's, everyone joined in and even if all you could offer was something knitted you could still contribute.
  2. I thought I would start a new thread on my new website based blog (I'm still going on blogger: ) with some new threads of the textile variety!
    I ordered in some floss silks for some of the projects for the silk shading book I'm working on ('Essential Guide to Silk Shading' to be published by Search Press, April 2011 all being well).
    Problem is, they look so nice I don't want to take them out of the packet!

    Silk floss

    I think at just over £1 for 80 metres, they are excellent value. Not looking forward to working with them though, will have to make sure my skin is nice and smooth....
