My precious

I spent Saturday morning with a couple of good friends at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Alexandra Palace. I came back with a much lighter wallet and (clockwise from top left), the most amazing pure angora wool from Artisan Yarns in “Snow White”, some also gorgeous alpaca, silk and cashmere lace yarn also from Artisan, two skiens of lovely linen wool from the knitshop.co.uk stall and an amazing 900g reel of pure dusky pink wool which was astonishingly cheap.

You’d think I’d be inspired by this to start knitting immediately, but I was at work last week and saw the most amazing giant granny square, and had to start one immediately. This is made from cheap-as-chips wool from the Trinity Hospice shop but I’m amazed at how quickly it’s growing (especially considering this time last week, I couldn’t crochet at all!)
