'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Sibolettes! Well done to you! We've done it again!

Good evening everyone!

It's so nice when I have news to tell you. I just can't wait to share it with you.

I did know a couple of months ago that SIBOL was going to feature in Knit Today. Last Friday the issue came out but I've had trouble getting a copy. Thanks to Melanie for telling me in the first place and also joyce28. This evening Mr. Twins has managed to scan me a couple of copies and now I am ready to share them with you.

Knit Today is a really lovely magazine here in the UK concentrating mainly on Knitting of course, but they do also have features on Crocheting and indeed patterns from time to time. I'm really pleased that our project was mentioned along with the Royal Wedding Blanket pictured.

Here is the main cover. If you click on the picture it will take you over to Flickr. Then go to 'actions' then 'sizes'. You'll then be able to read it..

Well done SIBOLETTES! We've done it again!

Then the actual article is here.

SIBOL has an article in Knit Today August 2011 Issue 62.

Thank you very much Knit Today!

I would also like to mention at this point that we will also be featured  in Simply Knitting. The issue No will be 85 and it will be out on September 6th.  They requested lots of photos and I've done my best to supply them with what I can. I have gained permission before sending the photos off to them. So let's see what happens in September. Something to look forward to.

Thanks to everyone for your comments on 'Endless Summer Flowers' and thanks to Marilyn for giving me an idea for the name.

So I think that's all for now.  Until next time, Goodnight!
