This weekend I went to an exhibition of knitted pelts at the Wool Museum. It is a fantastic exhibition and well worth a visit. This is one of the magnificent pieces of Ruth Marshall's work.
The museum also organised a workshop with the artist. A small group of ladies spent the afternoon learning about the process of mapping the skins and then making a small swatch that focussed on a very small section of a pelt. It was very interesting to talk to the artist about the process and I found out about asymetric graph paper for knitting and revisited Intarsia knitting.
A last minute decision led to a Sunday roast dinner, luckily there was still some of this cheesecake for dessert. The guests came bearing these lovely roses.
and after dinner a little quiet time, relaxing and knitting in front of the TV.
