I forgot to post about our visit to "The Stitch and Craft Show" in London.
Mum and I caught a coach to The Stitch and Craft Show. It is held in Olympia in London. It was the first time I had been to this show. There was so many people, but thankfully I have bought 2 VIP tickets which allowed mum and I in an area where we could get somewhere to sit down. It was worth it. It was very crowded but mum found a cross-stitch kit which she liked, it is of a three-mast sailing ship which is for my nephew's birthday. She also bought a lamp you click to you chair to spot light where you are working.
I bought yarn. :-)
Black Sheep Barn had a half price sale and I bought 8 skeins of Yuzen which I plan to knit into entrelac shawl. I could have bought a lot more as they had a fantastic selection.
There was a competition Knitted Model Village and an author signing a book she had written on knitting dogs. The dogs were adorable.
There are some really clever people.
