I took a little trip to Baa Ram Ewe, to have a nosy and take some pictures for the book. It was smaller than I expected and a knitting workshop had just finished so it was a little cramped! Verity Britton, the owner, was really great and just let me take as many photos as I like - I said I'd send her the pictures I took too, so maybe she'll put them on the website or facebook page? It was such a cute little shop, really interesting and filled with bright wool.
I really like the typography used on the shop sign and the flyers, so I think I'll be using the same typeface for the book. I'm pretty sure that the typeface I need is courier, well that's the closest one available on InDesign. Also I really like the beige colour used on the flyers with the text in black - the photos are going to be really bright so everything else needs to be quite subtle. I'm a newbie when it comes to InDesign so I'm struggling a little. It's really frustrating as I can't produce something on the software the same as I picture it in my head.
I really want to go to the knit night at Baa Ram Ewe on a Thursday 6-8pm but I usually work then and it's the only week day I can work a long shift. I keep on thinking I could make my own stitch 'n' bitch group but I'm not a great knitter (one day!!!) and I'm sure most people that would come would be beginners and I'm not at a stage to teach them to knit!!
