Knitting & Stitching & Prizes!

An overnight coach at the weekend took me to my folks house. From there yet another coach along with my mum and nan to the Knitting and Stitching show.
With a huge array of things to see and buy, I was relatively restrained with my purchases. A pair of extreme knitting needles (24mm x 700mm) from Rachel John. I'm not quite sure I'm up to 1000 strand knitting yet though!

I also brought a let's felt instruction guide from
Piiku. Hopefully this will encourage me to find the time to get felting again. My mum and nan got some rather fancy yarn, from the aptly named Fancy Yarn specialists. Back on the coach again, and homeward bound. To my delight when I arrived home, there was a package from the lovely A Playful Day podcast, as I'd won the donation giveaway - whoo hoo!
Four balls of drops fabel, in beautiful blues.
Plus five shell bead stitch markers from A Little Bit Sheepish. These are very luxurious, they are very smooth to the touch, and one even is a lobster clasp for marking crochet.
Plus, some uber cute sheep stitch markers from The Lollipop Stop. Once again, I am truly spoilt. And I think my old stitch markers (plain plastic rings) will have to go into retirement!


  1. Oh my goodness that video was amazing! The colors with the light coming through,and the way they were dancing together as she pulled them up, up, up! wonderful! :) Thank you for sharing.

  2. That yarn is going to make great socks and the shell stitch markers are lovely. Lucky girl.
