The Knitting & Stitching Show

I had a lovely day at the Knitting & Stitching Show on Saturday.

Despite it being a very early start ...

But after a lovely cup of coffee and delicious Eggs Benedict at Browns I was ready to go :o)

Unfortunately there were a lot of stands from last year missing and I was a little disappointed. My fav stands on the day were Lola Rose, This is Knit, Rubanesque, , Sew Good Books, and M Rosenberg & Son.

Here's what I bought. I know ... I was remarkably restrained, especially compared to last year!

East of India ribbons & Tilda paper from Rubanesque.

Beautiful red italian wool & polka dot cotton lawn from M Rosenberg & Son (F9)

By the time I got home I was totally shattered.

I lit some candles

Had a long soak in the bath

and finally got to bed after 11 :o)

Note to self for next year :-

Wear even less - it was ROASTING in there
Stay over in Dublin - it was a really long day
Bring or buy a wheelie bag/case, especially if buying books
Print out plan on net beforehand, they were charging 3 euro for it
Book tickets in advance (cheaper)
Be prepared for lots of pushing and shoving!
