Nearly ten years ago I went to my first Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally, London. I had won a design competition in Knitting Magazine and come 2nd….. It was such a thrilling time and I could hardly imagine that a decade on I would be signing copies of my own book at the same show. How crazy is that?
Knitting and Stitching Show
So on Friday I will get up early with a huge bag of yarn, equipment and a little bit of trepidation. I am hoping to spend the morning scouting round the stalls. I will happily spend a few hours looking at new yarn and inspirational designers.
I will definitely pop by the Stylecraft stall and take a quick Stylecraft selfie – you email@example.com do this if you visit the stall. Hopefully I will hook up with some of my yarny friends. Each year I like to have a good rummage in the yarn-dive on the Black Sheep Wools stand. This is almost an institution and you can pick up some bargains there.
Finally between 2pm – 4pm I will be on the GMC Stand H32. I will be doing some demonstrations from my new book Cute Crocheted Animals. So if you want to have a one-2-one surgery on the amigurumi technique I would love to see you. Please do pop by for a chat and perhaps you could also give me some new ideas for additional animals.
