Knitting at the Ideal Home Exhibition

Another weekend and another visit to an exhibition. This weekend we went to the Ideal Home Exhibition at Earls Court. I met Jax at Earls Court through a friend of a friend in 1995. He was selling burgers there for his summer job and I was at a computer exhibition looking for a PC for my first year at Uni. We discovered that he was studying at the same Uni that I had enrolled on that summer. We then decided to meet up afterwards. We went on our first proper date with at the Ideal Home Exhibition in 1996......oh gosh it has been 14 years already! Such a long time ago. :)

Anyway, it was extremely busy there, especially on the second floor where they had the food demonstration. We saw a demonstation by Aldo Zilli. I'd love to try out his vegetarian restaurant in Soho.
For the first time (that I've been going to the show) they actually had a knitting stand. Yes, I was so pleased to see I-Knit there.

I'm looking forward to going to more exhibitions and shows this year such at the KnitNation Expo at Imperial College this summer, the I-Knit Weekender and the Knitting and Stitching show later on in the year. Hope to see more blog friends there.
Have a lovely week everyone.

Hi Ruth,

Did you enjoy your time there?

We only managed to go into the Cube House as the queques were so long and my daughter was getting tired. But we had a great day.

Have a lovely weekend.
