Wild, Woolly Weather & some Laughing Hens

Wednesday was quite exciting as I had planned a visit to meet all of the lovely ladies at Laughing Hens who are based a short drive away in the Sussex countryside. Thankfully the weather was fine with the sun managing an appearance so I enjoyed a pleasant 10 miler before getting ready for my trip. I'm on the look-out for a jumper pattern so in true form I came away with a totally different project - a rather pretty Fair Isle pattern hat for which I chose lovely muted colours!

It was great to meet them all and I came away with some 'addi' circular needles to practice with. They are feather-light and I shall experiment with them during one of my short runs next week. Here's a photo of the famous laughing hens (who keep escaping onto the lane at the moment!) and one of the ladies themselves (from left to right) Zara, Kim and Nicki.
