we were some pair,
today at The Knitting and Stitching show
at Alexandra Palace
mostly we were getting lost, being wide eyed
and buying too many balls of wool
wow was there a lot of wool about
woolen airplanes ... woolen telephones
I was so inspired by the embroidery, the fearless creativity
that people shared
and I made a wonderful discovery in Boukje Voet ...
I think seeing her work has changed my life somehow
I really do mean that
each book is deconstructed and then remade
I love paper
And I suppose I should share my purchases too:
balls of delicious wool
10 balls of black 'Sublime Angora Merino'
2 balls of gorgeous shiny gold 'Lang Yarns'
and 1 ball of grey 'Purl Alpana'
and 2 patterns from Purl Alpaca:
and Bjelle Top
and look! this is what I'll be doing once I've finished knitting my top ...
yeah, I know! Mad!
