I mentioned yesterday that I went to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace this weekend. It's the first time I've been and I had a good time despite the massive crowds.
I didn't take any pictures due to the aforementioned crowds - being short meant that any shot I tried to take just had a lot of people's heads and not much else *laughs*
My main reason for going was to find new yarn for gran's scarf, as I posted about yesterday. I spent ages looking at all of the grey yarns available before finding the perfect one.
While I was looking, I did of course buy a few other things...
Zauberball - I do love my Zauber socks, so I had to get some more *grins*
I was surprised at how few stands were selling spindles, compared to how many had fibre. I wanted a new spindle, but I didn't like any that I found, but I did like the fibre I saw.
In the end I picked up 200g of this 100% wool with orangey flecks in it. The label was pretty sparse on details but it feels nice and I liked the look of it, so that's all that mattered really *laughs*
I also picked up these dyed silk noils...
It was a grab bag of mixed colours for only £2, so I couldn't pass it up really. I have no idea how to spin them though *laughs* Anyone have any hints or tips for me?
