Waving hello

Well, hello!

I’m Laura, or Artygal on Pinterest and Ravelry.  I love knitting and spinning and also enjoy weaving and sewing to varying degrees of enthusiasm and skill.  I’m very flattered to be invited to join this collective, despite feeling like the very less stylish cousin!

Recently I was on holiday in Dorset, thoroughly relaxing and spinning on my new IST Turkish spindle everywhere I could.  IMG-20150803-WA0001Well, it would have been rude not to when there were even tiny streets there that had suitable names

I want to live here!

I spun, span, did spinning at West Bay, Cerne Abbas, Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door (high on a hill where I thought a child was going to break his neck the way that he turned to look at what I was doing), Chesil beach,
