I've been taking Sally's advice and was sleeping yesterday. These weekends away are not known for vast quantities of snoozing time. The Nor'Loch lodge was lovely.I bunked in with 3 women from the Aurora Guild, snug in our own little cottage.But the real fun was in the classes. Here's Sally giving some fashion advice.
Karen from Sheepstrings doesn't need any help at all. She's got it all together. That's one of the sweaters out of Sally's new book Mother-Daughter Knits.I learned that the shorter the knitted top you are wearing the wider your bottom should be. Ha, Ha. Got that one covered! OK she means the wider the pants or skirt you can wear, like straight pants or an A-line skirt. And the longer the top the skinnier the pants should be.Not being a naturally stylish person this was very interesting information. I took note of everything you can wear with jeans. It's all in her book and the big sweater is by no means a no-no you just gotta get the leggings out again girls.



  1. What a great weekend we had. Nothing like being in a relaxing environment meeting wonderful people, learning new things from Sally who is an amazing teacher, in an atmosphere of creative inspiration, and hanging out and knitting with great friends. Plus fabulous food and no distracting husbands and kids - bliss!

  2. I agree. It was a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to do it again! Gerry Kinna
