Episode 12: Has anyone seen my mojo?

Hello from a little piece of green space overlooking the Weaver Navigation Canal. In this episode I muse on my missing mojo, announce a winner and ponder on tails as an essential accessory.

UFO contest: Thanks to all those who entered, but nobody guessed the correct UFO, which was in fact my Birthday Pinwheel Sweater:

Details are here. Although no-one correctly identified it, I thought I would still have a draw, so the random number generator picked out a winner. Was it you?

You can choose from either of the Abstract Cat yarns I mentioned in an earlier episode, a lovely pint silk laceweight from Knitwitches or some lovely Lei from Posh Yarn

Abstract Cat Retro:

or Posh Yarn Lei in an unspecified colourway I bought at Wonderwool Wales in 2008:

Thanks to all who entered!

What's on my needles: a Featherweight cardigan in Posh Yarn, a Clapotis in Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend and a Stripy Noro Messenger Bag. Fancy joining in the Fibre & CLay knit-a-long for this bag? We're already international, so feel free! The pattern can be downloaded from here.

And finally.... what else would you see at the V&A than this...


Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album TrĂ¥d, available from Magnatune.
