Had a great day at the Knitting and Stitching Show. As usual it was heaving with people but it was worth the effort to see all the lovely yarns, if only to touch and squeeze them. I resisted the buffalo yarn at up to £65 a skein, but I did buy a beautiful wool and silk 2 ply to knit a very fine tie-front cardigan which I have been thinking about for a while. There is so much on a skein that I only needed one, at £16, so that seemed a bargain. I also bought some ssshhhhh acrylic to knit another Nanook, and a cotton mix for a stripy sweatshirt type pattern called Shellseeker by the same designer. So probably got enough to keep me going until next year's show, which is already booked on the calendar for 10th to 13th October 2013.
I had half a skein of wool/silk left over from my last Nanook, so found a pattern for a camisole and am squeezing the yarn out to hopefully have enough. It is knitted top down and I am about half way there so should be able to get sufficient length and then stop when I run out of yarn.
Sorry no photos as him outdoors has taken the camera away for the weekend.
Meanwhile I am still knitting tiny things in between. I try to do one a day to feed my ebay customers! Here is one I made earlier:
