knitters in the city

Dear Annie,
This weekend, our trip to London for a family wedding serendipitously coincided with Knit Nation. It didn't take much persuading for my fab and uber-crafty Mother-in-law to join me for a little trip to the marketplace.

I managed to take a few little snaps of some things that caught my eye (including the mini cakes in the tea salon of course), but I was rather distracted by all the gorgeous yarn, and the excitement of seeing knitters everywhere- knitting, chatting and modelling their amazing creations.

Sabrina met us there, and we caught up over a coffee before perusing all the delights on offer. We were rather enamoured of Ysolda and her lucky dip. I came away with a Ravelry pattern voucher, J with a project bag, and Sabrina with a copy of Whimsical Little Knits signed by the lady herself.

I bought a couple of p/hop patterns, but miraculously (and to D's relief), just one skein of yarn. Beautiful, silvery four ply yarn, half silk, half merino. The shade was called Moonstone. I was powerless to resist!

Knitters in the city; a very enjoyable jolly indeed.

Love from,


PS: Thank you very much to Kath at inverleith for the award, we really appreciate you thinking of us. Do pop over and see Kath's  fantastic crochet skills...


  1. I'm so jealous. I would have loved to have gone to Knit Nation. I've recently bought Ysolda's new book, Little Red in the City. It's a fabulous read. I'm learning so much about fitting etc that I daren't cast on any garments until I finish reading it!

  2. lucky you, i'd have love to have gone! it was our school summer fair {in the rain!} on Saturday, so i was trying to make money rather than spend it!


Thank you so much for commenting, we love to hear what you have to say.
