A successful and fun 3 days at the Malvern Creative Craft and Stitch Show.Thanks to all for the positive response and special thanks to my helper, Ariane. The only drama ( there’s always a drama when I’m travelling) was the flat tyre while trying to pack up… Fortunately, Scott was around to sort it out ( well sorta, we drove back to London with a slow leak). On to Olympia tomorrow.
What an amazing day at IKNIT’s saturday knitter’s paradise. My table is looking messy- will try to clean up the presentation before the Creative Crafts show next week in Escher!

here’s annabel in our stand at the creative crafts show in somerset-she’s sporting a new Blue Heron cardi-knitted in the cotten Texture yarn and trimmed in Beaded Metallic. I was pleased with the results of the show-especially considering this was our first venture into the realm of knitting shows and this particular one seemed heavily weighted towards card and scrap bookers. best sellers were the soft spun alpaca/merino, sock yarns and Rio de la plata yarns.The Blue Heron yarns were a big draw into the stand-
We met lots of lovely knitters and made some new client friends so hopefully will return to this area.
I LOVED SOMERSET- the area was just stunning and reminded me of New England (southern vermont esp.)For the 5 days we rented a lovely cottage and could look out at the adorable sheepies from the patio. this was our view
I was dismayed by the lack of interest in the needlepoint canvases- where are all the fine tapestry lovers?
This proves that I did some knitting on my very long break.Actually, I did alot-designed 3 sweaters(2 finished),1 angora lacy hat and a felted bag. All, of course, need to be photographed so you may or may not see them for awhile…
What is going on with the weather in London?
Have updated the events page,but still a WIP. Crazed and currently panicking about what to take to the Stitch and Creative Crafts Show at the Bath showgrounds next week-have too much great stuff-poor me….The biggest problem is getting it to fit into car.
