The Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace

Posted in Exhibitions, Knitting, London

Missed the show last year so made a big effort to get there this year. The highlights included this tent decorated with unfinished projects (and the stories inside), Rowan‘s cute dinosaur panorama, as well as a stunning embroidered car door from the imaginative Mr X Stitch.

Have to confess to not buying much. A lovely skein of hand-dyed yarn and some cheap DK acrylic James C Brett Twinkle sparkly stuff in midnight blue and a second-hand book of collected articles about colourwork was pretty much my entire haul. Was a bit hampered by making some strict rules with myself about no new hobbies and no fabric. Still none the wiser about why people buy giant cardboard giraffes and cover them with wrapping paper.
