It was a good day…


I Knit Day, that is. Kerrie, Lou and I knew that we had some wonderful things to bring to the show. There was the news about the magazine going 10 issues a year and being available in Tesco, WH Smith’s and Borders (amongst others) from October 6th. There was a sneaky peak at Sew Hip magazine, launching in October. There were samples for issue 7 – including wonderful exclusive pieces by Martin Storey and Liz Lovick. There were friends to see, new people to meet, and knitting treats to enjoy.

We caught up with a few stars of the knitting world: Mazzmatazz (of the Guardian knitting supplement), Just Call Me Ruby, Erika Knight, and the wonderful Yarn Harlot (she signed our book, you know)…

We met Ingrid Wagner, who was there with her sensational Big Knit project in support of Breakthrough Breast Cancer

My friend Jess helped me to make a stitch with the giant needles…

After that, we were quite tired, so we had to have a little rest.

We met these lovely models, wearing samples from the vintage knitting book A Stitch In Time, by Jane Waller and Susan Crawford – shortly to be reissued…

And Lou had a special moment with a wooden sheep…

If you were there, then you know what a fabulous day it was. Thanks to all our readers, old and new alike, who visited the stall to say hello. We’re looking forward to doing it all again for the Ally Pally show!

    When I signed up for the subscription on Saturday I didn’t realise it was for 10 issues a year! Not complaining…!!!LOL
