Inspiration at Ally Pally

On Saturday Kyoko and I had a great time at the Knitting and Stitching Show last year so we decided that we were going to do exactly the same thing as last year. So we packed our lunch and headed off to Alexander Palace at the same time as last year. Hee Hee Hee! Yes, we, well me actually, are like knitting babies as we take comfort in routine. The only thing we did differently was to head straight to the Jamieson stand to drop off some of Kyoko's knitting purse pattern. They are great and selling really fast, check it out here.

Then we walked around in the same order as last year to ensure that we get to see everything. There were so many things to see this year and we met familiar faces as well. We popped over to the Loop stand to say 'hello' to Susan and Claire. They had some gorgeous baby knitting patterns there. Here are some photos I took on the day (yep, I remembered to bring my camera this time):

The knitted mast by the entrance, isn't it amazing.

Catch of the day

I fell in love with this cowl.

I didn't know you could do that with fabric.

I also bought some clothes patterns, I will blog about this later, the days are getting shorter so there is less time to take photos in natural day light. Once the photos are done, then I'll blog about it.

Oh well, until next year Ally Pally......

So sad I missed it this year - doesn't feel like Autumn without my annual visit to the K&S :)
