I was away in Dublin for the half-term break. I managed to get into The Knitting and Stitching show at the RDS on Friday morning for the first time ever.
Some Injabulo Buttons. Georgeous.
An untried yarn............Panda Cotton from This is Knit. I've started a pair of Monkey's in this for my Aunt. :)
Jitterbug in Velvet. I love this semi-solid colour!!
A mixed bag of by-products of silk manufacturing, I have a few ideas for these.
Some silk threads and colourful mix of assorted threads, I couldn't resist, from Oliver Twists.
The show was a cornucopia of mixed crafts. Some I will never do, some which tempted me and some which I already love. I was blown away by some of the exhibitions of Quilts/quilting, clothing by Sybil Connolly. There was also exhibitions by local artists in lace (of many different types including a MS3 completed shawl!!!), embroidery, textiles, felting, spinning and papercrafts etc. It was lovely to see all the effort and love that the artists put into their own work and how delighted they were to share it all. I will really try and make the effort to visit one of the UK venues nest year. :)
