Knitting & Stitching Show, Alexandra Palace - 2008.

This yarn is so gorgeous , I love it as it is, and cant take it out of the packet yet!
It's Biggan Yarn from Australia - and Biggan is such a sweetie!

This is some dyed cotton velvet and felted squares.
Maybe ..... some little embroidered/beaded pincushions....?

Couldn't resist some sock yarn!

Daughter bought this lovely Regia sock yarn - amongst a few other bits and pieces!

The Knitting and Stitching Show this year, was really enjoyable - I think as we went early in the day it wasn't quite so manic! (and we did take our own sandwiches!) - The choice of everything is overwhelming but we did manage to whittle things down!
The exhibitions are worth seeing too -
go see
John Allen's new pieces, in his Gallery space at Ally Pally - wonderful!

Hi, interesting to see someone else posting about the Ally Pally show. I loved it, was there 6 hours and still didn't see it all. I was very impressed with all the exhibits this year, especially John Allen whose work is gorgeous. Would love to have had oodles of cash to buy some of those yummy cardigans on sale.

Great blog btw. Lots of interesting items.
