Every year Twisted Thread holds several Knitting and Stitch Shows across the UK and every year my friends and I toddle off to Harrogate to find lots of wonderful things to fill our already cluttered houses.
Today I was graced with the presence of Steph, Mel and Emily
We also bumped into friends Hazel and Nazila
we shopped, stopped for lunch...
...then shopped some more.
Towards the end of the event, we ventured downstairs where there were groups of people teaching various crafts.
Emily and Steph learned to crochet...
...Mel learned to knit
Mel did have a go at crochet, but somehow it turned into unintentional tunisian crochet :\
Emily's crochet ended up rather phallic shaped O_o Much to the dismay of the elderly lady teaching her...haha
We had a fabulous time, I highly recommend the show for anyone interested in crafting, it's a brilliant day out.
and my loot?
My rainbow obsession continues
I couldn't resist these striking spots
I've been inspired by Sarah from 'Crafts from the Cwtch' with her beautiful arm warmers so I bought this utterly gorgeous, grey, silk yarn from Twist yarns, the other is from Nimu and will become socks.
and to knit my arm warmers I bought some beautiful knit pro DPN's...yum!
These are all being sent off to Santa and I can only have them back if I'm a good girl between now and Christmas.
