I made a very brief trip to the annual Knitting and Stitching Show last week. When I say brief, I mean that I was there for about two hours, as opposed to the two full days that I was there last year!
Along with I Knit Day, this is the big event on the knitting calendar. It’s held at Alexandra Palace, fondly known by Londoners as Ally Pally. It’s a great Victorian era exhibition venue (partial destruction by fire notwithstanding), but perhaps the best part about it is the wonderful view that you get overlooking the rest of London below:
I only had a very quick visit inside, missed most of the yarn stalls, and only just managed to say hi to a few friends. I’d worked until stupid o’clock the night before so couldn’t manage more than that. I felt much better after a quick recuperative sit down in the afternoon sunshine before heading home for a nap.
