It was very crowded on the train there and more crowed in at the exhibition hall. There was so many people and so many stands. My favourite stands have to be Doughty, Fabric Galore, Millamia and the Knit Box. Millamia is owned by a Swedish lady who designs lovely knitted garment for children. It's just a pity that all her patterns only go up to 5 years and my daughter is almost 6 now. The Knit Box is owned by a lovely Turkish lady who told me that knitters there knit from memory and do not use patterns (they haven't heard of the word gauge). She had some amazing knitted Turkish shoes displayed (sorry no photos, but you may find them on her website).
I bought some 100% merino yarn, some bamboo cotton yarn, one ball of 100% virgin wool yarn, half a metre of Amy Butler fabrics, one button (yes just one) and a fabric marker pen. So I'm really pleased.

We then went to the pub to have a Sunday roast. Yum.
Instead of flowers I got some basil to have with some tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil and some crusty bread. All I need now is a tomato plant. :)
We then had a photo shoot for the Audrey Summer Scarflette that I was making and it is now listed in the shop.
Happy Mother's day to all Mothers and I hope you all had a lovely day.

This week I walked from Barbican to London Bridge passing St Pauls, the Millennium Bridge, the Tate Modern and Borough Market. Last summer they placed several pianos around London for people to play some music (if you can play the piano). I love this city.
I've also been working on some items for the shop, here is a quick preview of one item in progress:
A nautical feel in Navy and White cotton yarn.
I'm also working on some thing for my daughter, although I haven't quite got my head around the design yet.
Have a lovely weekend everyone, and for those in London, enjoy the sunshine.
