  • Welcome back! You have been missed, looking fwd to reading about your adventures.

  • I don’t want to be a downer here but you might look into laser hair removal….

  • Ann,
    I’ve been meaning to tell you that I bought Bowling Avenue to read on holiday in Shetland and I LOVED it! I couldn’t put it down. It was brilliant.

  • Love what you’ve done with your mustache! If you went to Turkey, I hope you had as much fun as I did.
    And yes, I enjoyed Bowling Avenue.

  • Love the chapeau. Istanbul! You must have run into my friend Patricia who was there… She was the one knitting…
    Welcome back!

  • Don’t you feel warm with all those layers on? (I loved Adrienne’s comment, which was witty and in the vein of my original thought.)

  • Nice beard πŸ˜‰

  • Istanbul! How romantic-sounding! And, because of Mona Lisa Smile, whenever I hear or read “Istanbul,” this runs through my head.

  • When the picture first popped up, I immediately thought “Banana telephone!”

  • The look in your eyes says it was a potent experience. Will be excited to hear more, whenever you’re ready.

  • Is your hair really sticking straight up like that? Welcome back!

  • Loved the book as well. The food must have been good. Looks like a little time on the elliptical might be in order. The lady who owns my LYS takes knitters on fiber tours to Turkey. I hope your yarns have good yarn in them. πŸ™‚

  • Istanbul! I hope you enjoyed my favorite city. I hope you drank good coffee, ate good fish and had your mind blown by textiles. I once knew a woman who had spent eight years in the Topkapi archives–studying Ottoman velvet.

  • Istanbul is certainly one of my favourite cities as well! Food, architecture, textiles – wow.
    Did you have a glass of tea on a ferryboat across the Bosphorus? Such a civilized commute.

  • nice to have you back

  • I just want a pattern for a Pussy Riot balaclava:

  • I think that you must still be alive…I see your twitter feed twinkling feebly from time to time. I hope that you’re feeling better soon!

  • We went on a 12 day land tour of Turkey for our honeymoon in 2007. Wonderful country, lots of ruins, caravanserais, palaces, textiles, – and knitted items at every gas station/convenience store!
