Knitting - Spring Knitting and Stitching Show

Yesterday was the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show outing with Rachel.  We had a wonderful day, full of chatting, sunshine (all day), yarn, good food. and ................ scroll down for the and

The show -

My purchases - the Filati da Collezione yarn was from the Abakhan stand all 3 packs for £22.99.  The only problem I can see with it is that it doesn't tell you the name or weight of the yarn so I will have to break a rule of a lifetime and knit a tension swatch to find out what it is! If anyone recognises any of it then please let me know.

100% organic cotton
30% wool and mixed fibres
50% wool and 50% acrylic - yummy colour
50% merino 50% acrylic
And dress shopping for the wedding - so hard.  I did actually find a dress I like, in fact I have three at home now, two of which will go back, the choosen dress, I now need to find a smart cardigan or jacket to go with. As the wedding is a casual affair to be held in our garden I don't want to go over the top but would like to look half way decent!! I'll keep you posted on what I decide.


  1. I have deemed that I will buy no more yarn until Yarndale in September. Well, let's see how I get on with that, I've been good for one week.
    I like your colour choices for yarn, looking forward to seeing what you make.
    My tip for wedding outfits has to be comfort. Whatever you decide to wear, if you feel comfortable you will look stunning.

  2. ugh...I just remembered that I am going to have to get another dress for a wedding myself.
    LOVE the knitted animals from the stitching show. How fun. Even more fun to get to spend the day with a DD.

  3. I adore your photos, you've inspired me - my own filled up my blog so much that it was a bit chaotic!! I'm glad you had a fun time and am looking forward to seeing what you knit :)
