The Knitting and Stitching Show

I went to the The Knitting and Stitching Show in Alexandra Palace on Saturday. This year instead of card making and the many other non knitty and stitchy crafts they normally have, there was supplier stands with lots and lots of nice yarns. All variety of fibres.... silks, alpaca, wools, cottons.... in a rainbow of colours even hand-dyed yarns.

I bought a few bargain yarns :) from different sellers

and a book from the nice Sockopus lady, she wraps everyones purchases so nicely and added a stitch marker to each package. I don't want to spoil the package by opening it :)


  1. Was it only venders? I mean did they have any shows.
    It looks like fun.

  2. Hi ghost
    It has over 400 vendors plus galleries of students and groups textile work, over 100 workshops, a place to rest & sit and knit/ crochet even a Champagne Bar to slip champagne & knit/ crochet and there was a fashion show. Lots to do and see and packed full of people.

  3. Sounds really wonderful. I love to go to places like that but they have to have a lot of seating. I can only walk so long without resting.
