Knit and Stitch

Hello Ladies, look where I went today. The Knit and Stitch show at Harrogate. Just a few piccies as there was far too much to see and touch and stroke and oo and ah at to take photos. Sorry but I only had 7 hours!
A bit of a show stopper, a life size sailing boat completely covered in knitting. It was surrounded by knitted pebbles and sea creatures.

We managed a 15 minute lunch break hear in this beautiful theatre at the center of the exhibition halls.

A very blurry shot of the Wensleydale Longwool stand.

Not quite sure what this is but we were allowed to photograph it so I did.

Beautiful hand made note books.

Well that's it as far as photos, many of the stands did not allow photographs and to be honest it took the pleasure out of the day having to ask each time if you could take a photo and then being refused. So I'm afraid that's your lot.
I do have a couple of pictures of my own latest project to show, but you'll have to pop back again to see them next time.

I'm off to soak my tired feet.
Love Fi x

I am sure you had a great time i certainly did when I went to the exhibition at Alexandra Palace. You can't be taking photos and looking at things and people would keep getting in the way etc. Hope your feet will recover by tomorrow and looking forward to seeing what you are creating now.

Wondered it you would be there - my friend and I were there all day - marvellous stuff particularly Oliver Twists stuff we thought. We went over to The Swan Hotel for our lunch which made a nice break, and then back again until 4 - went on a coach from Leyburn. Spent far too much money. Thousands of people - we go every year and never tire of it.

Looks like you had a lovely, if not exhausting time. Take care of those feet!

Thank you for visiting my blog.
Wow! What a lovely blog you have. I had a great time looking at it and reading it. Love all the photos, esp. those of the little towns. One of the things I miss most about Europe is the great and varied architecture, and the ambiance it creates.
