Unwind Brighton

This weekend is going to be so exciting as we are leaving our kids with grandparents and heading to Brighton. This will actually be our first trip alone, which makes it even more special. All our trips have always been with kids, focus on kids and filled with kids’ noise so it will be a real treat for both of us :-) (oh I must sound like a really bad mom getting excited at the thought of no noise generated by my little ones :-)


So we are leaving on Thursday and if all goes well (please let there be no delays!) we should be taking a walk along Madeira Drive in the evening. Next three days will be all about meeting knitting buddies I know just from Ravelry or blogs and, which is really nice, we will also get to meet with my good old friend from university. The last time I saw him was about 7 years ago in a pub in Torun, and me and my husband-to-be were at the beginning of our relationship. How cool is that? At the weekend I’ll be also taking part in two classes with Ragga Eiriksdottir. I’m really interested in Icelandic Knitting and since I made Grettir, I’ve wanted to experience the real Lopapayesa. This is going to be so much fun!

I’ll be visiting the Market Place many times for sure! I just can’t wait to see all those beautiful yarns, meet fabulous dyers, say hi to fellow knitters. I’m also taking a sample of “On The Pier” with me. The shawl was made to celebrate Unwind Brighton and it will be on display at Julie Asselin‘s stand. I’m positive that Julie will be offering both yarn and the pattern to make your own version of the shawl, so do pop in her booth to check out her yarn!

What is more, today “A Playful Day” is having giveaway on her blog with the design. She has 3 copies of the pattern that will be gifted to lucky winners so do check out her blog and leave a comment to join in the fun!

See you in Brighton!
