Kaleidoscope workshop

I was lucky enough this weekend to drop into a workshop at the Rowan Mill with Jane Crowfoot and Debbie Abrahams, based on their new book. 
Kaleidoscope - 24 knit and crochet projects for the home is a book that definitely makes the most of Jane and Debbies unique talent with colour, so as you can imagine the workshop was a bright and fun day for the first bit of real sunshine we have seen.

Going Underground

A couple of weekends ago my boyfriend and I decided to go on an underground tour of manchester. The tour lasted a couple of hours, during which time our tour guide took us on a tour of Manchester both above and below the surface. The portion below the surface took us through what at one time had been the Salford Junction canal and was then used as air raid shelters, whilst it was slightly creepy it was definitely better than the bitter cold wind and snow above ground!

 We then went to Solita for dinner, where we had these chicken scratchings - so wrong yet so right!
