Nottingham "Just Knitting" show, April 15th 2012

Sunday dawned, bright and cold, and we got there just after opening time. My friend C is in the foreground - the back of your head is now famous, ha!

Some more pics of the event - taken as we arrived, it got busier than this.

F is waving to me - she's my neighbour in terms of machine knitting as she lives about half a mile away

Looking towards the centre - Nick from Uppingham Yarns is already busy.

Riverside to left, Andeeknits in background. The Riverside bloke always looks really fed up, it's very off-putting.

Two jackets by Hazel Green - love these, hope the pattern is in the Guild newsletter soon

Pretty sure that's Clair Crowston in the red. She had some sample garments for sale and I was sorely tempted, but I don't think she's my size, alas.

Uppingham Yarns and Metropolitan. Love Pat's turquoise cardigan - I want to have a go at that!

All in all, a very good show. I fell off the yarn wagon somewhat (James C Brett marble yarn has a deadly attraction, what can I say?). Also picked up an SC3 linker and an AG50 electronic intarsia carriage, this is a fabled device that is rarely seen online. Also picked up some rather nice buttons, and this time made a point of getting a decent amount that I might be able to use them.

Only down side to the day was that the fashion show commentary was unintelligible. More treble needed next year! It was just a jumble of sound alas.
