- Hello Ladies,
- I went to the Knitting and Stitching show on Saturday at the Alexandra Palace, in North London.
These are Indian Silk yarns, they are so soft and silky to touch, I saw a beautiful scarf made with them and I could see Christmas gifts flashing through my head, whilst looking at them.
I fell in love with this when I saw it, the photo does it no justice. Perhaps when it's made up you might be able to see it better. But this one is for me. Purple is my favourite colour and this is a really rich, deep, very, very soft to the touch, rub your face in it purple. Don't know what I'll make with it, but I wanted it as soon as I saw it.
Apart from some buttons that I bought, this was my last buy. I have seen some lovely patterns about for crochet socks and I wanted to have a go at making some and thought this would be ideal. It looked lovely crocheted up. They had a blanket on display with all the different colours of this yarn.
I had a fantastic day, even though it was heaving and you had trouble getting to view some stalls. I just wished I'd been able to take some pics to show you, but it was an impossibility. The work we saw there was stunning, the imagination some people have is fantastic.
I've got some lovely yarns to play with, that should keep me going for awhile. Will I need to buy more later? I hope not but who knows.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
