K&S Show @ Ally Pally 2009

Wow its been a month since my last post!

Knitting & Stitching Show at Ally Pally was great as always, I was very good and didnt spend that much. These are some purchaes I made, cant wait to experiment with the dyes.

Saw some really great work on display too, its always a fantastic place to get inspiration from. I particularly liked the Clay and Thread display: Clay and Thread: Alice Kettle Collaborates with Helen Felcey and Alex McErlain and the wonderful prints onto felt by Dionne: Dionne Swift: New Grounds
