Blogtoberfest #9 TKASS 2012 Part One

As I mentioned the other day I had tickets to go to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexander Palace today with my friend George and another mummy friend Alicia was also coming with her mother-in-law. So, this is the first part of my day today, I’ll be doing the talking with my  pictures.

The amazing windows at Ally Pally, don’t you just love them?

An entire knitted village before I got into the exhibition, some people actually spent time knitting these up. I really love the detail they’ve gone into.

I’m pleased by simple things, I loved how these are arranged like a rainbow…gorgeous!

The biggest crocheting and knitting needles I’ve ever seen. Not sure they would be very comfortable to knit or crochet with, I think it would make your wrists hurt.

I could have taken hundreds of these pictures…the colours are just amazing.

My guys from The Crochet Chain were there with a good selection of DROPS yarns, unfortunately not the ones I needed, so I just ordered them online from The Wool Shed.

An absolutely gorgeous quilt, I just can’t believe the time someone spent completing this.

Alicia with her granny trolley, ready to buy, buy, buy. She didn’t get that much in the end.

More to come tomorrow.

Blogtoberfest #7 The Knitting and Stitching Show 2012

This is where I’m going this weekend: The Knitting and Stitching Show. To say I’m excited is a complete understatement. I’ve been wanting to go to this show every single year, but have never managed.

It also means I get to meet up with a good friend of mine, Georgina, and her mum is coming along too. Additionally, my mummy friend Alicia and her mother-in-law are coming too. I think it’s going to be a lovely morning/afternoon, also because I get some me time.

Now, you guys know that I love my little man with all my heart, but I do need the occasional downtime and this is just the kind of thing that I will love, love, love!

I just have to make sure to control my spending. I’ll let you know what I buy on Sunday!
