My Alexandra Palace purchases

Sirdar Country Style DK 1000grams/3480yds/6580m - acrylic/nylon/wool

The yarn below was in a goodie bag which I got when I purchased a years' subscription to Handmade Living Magazine.  The bag included, 3 magazines, 3 knitting pattern booklets and this yarn

Sock yarn - 100grams/420m - virgin wool/acrylic/nylon

Boucle Chunky - 150grams/174m - 70% Black Hills wool & 30% mohair produced in South Island of New Zealand - feels lovely
Buttons and sequins purchased on request by eldest - hope they are what she's looking for!

Fabrics for christmas decorations which the youngest and I plan to make - we just need to get started. 
So all in all a good day out; we thought the attentence was down on last year, but of those there they all seemed to be spending, especially round the Black Sheep stand, thanks boys good bargains as usual, see you next year.
