News! News!

Hello out there!

It has been a little quiet on the blog for a while now, so I thought it was time that we gave you an update.

As you might have noticed, the main knitonthenet site is down at the moment for maintainance. This is all because of EXCITING CHANGES (yay) coming to knitonthenet in the next couple of weeks. There's lots of hard work going on behind the scenes at the moment, and as soon as it is ready, we will let you know for the Big Reveal. If you're a registered reader, you will be getting an email soon to let you know all about the latest developments too.

In the meantime, don't fret because you can still peruse books, vintage style patterns and kits on the knitonthenet online shop by clicking here, and as in previous years, we are pleased to announce that Just call me Ruby's Poppy Pattern is available for download in support of the Royal British Legion. If you'd like to support Knit a Poppy by donating £2 and downloading the poppy pattern, please click here.

That's about it for today, but we will be bringing you all the latest developments with the site, as and when they're ready to announce. Exciting times!!

Happy Knitting

Holidays away, and holidays at home

We've been a little bit quiet at knitonthenet of late, as you may have noticed.

I'm taking a holiday for a couple of weeks, doing some research, taking some classes and, of course, knitting lots and lots!

Susan and Gavin have been up in Shetland for the In the Loop conference, where Susan was a keynote speaker (how exciting!) Here's a post from her blog from just before she went, and we'll let you know how she got on once she's back and has recovered and digested all the amazing knitting info!

In The Loop Two

Its been a busy week since getting back from Goodwood, some good reasons some not so good.

One good reason though is that tomorrow morning we drive off into the sunrise for a 24 hour journey to Shetland. We are trying the ferry for the first time as we have a heap of stuff to take with us. We have a nine hour drive to Aberdeen and then a fourteen hour ferry trip! Overnight, so hopefully I will sleep through most of it. I'm not really a boat person so this is a big test for me.

The reason we are going is that on Thursday morning I am the opening keynote speaker at the In The Loop Two conference being held at the Shetland Museum. I have a 45 minute slot which is quite a long time to be talking! I am also official photographer for The Knitter which is rather exciting, so will be going everywhere with my camera round my neck to make sure I don't miss anything.

I will report back with a longer post on our return, but in the meantime wish me luck for my boat ride.

for now
Ruby xx
