16th September: finally the Pure Wool book is published and we have sold some and sent many to the wonderful people who helped to create it. It has been reviewed in several magazines and on Ravelry and what I have seen so far seems very fair and accurate.
16th September: My sister gave me this lovely short book of poems about sheep. These are real, sometimes harsh, but also sensitive and beautiful - and as might be expected there are several by Ted Hughes. There are only ten poems, selected by Neil Astley and published by Candlestick Press. ISBN is 978 1 907598 11 1.
