So, I finally made it back to the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, 17 years after my last visit (yes, 17 years). I had a brilliant time when I went with college back in 1995 (even though our coach was deemed unroadworthy at South Mimms services and we spent the best part of the morning there) and I'm really not sure why it took me so long to go back.
I have no intention of waiting another 17 years (already looking forward to 2013 in fact!). Here are my highlights.
And Erin Endicott.
I found someone new (which is always exciting) - Rachel Parker was in the Graduate Showcase. I fell in love with her work instantly. No photos I'm afraid but she has lots of lovely ones on her website.
I also liked this piece by Alice Kettle:
I may have shopped (just a little) as well, my favourite purchase being this little bundle from Ray Stitch:
So, I'm now counting down to next October (and possibly wondering whether a trip to Harrogate can be justified!).
