✄ The Knitting & Stitching Show ✄



I had such an inspiring day yesterday at The Knitting & Stitching Show :) in London. It was defiantly worth to visit! This event is for everybody who loves crafts as it has many exhibitors who offers classes, supplies, books or ready crafted goodness to sell. Although it was quite overwhelming to see so much in one day, I have few favourites: Sheep Of Steel hand-spins this lovely yarn (pictures above and bellow)

Fabric Affair

Really pretty Irish fabric (Fabric Affair picture above and Magee Of Donegal picture bellow)

Maggee of Donegal

And some work with Liberty fabrics. I love Liberty fabrics!


I was quite tempted to buy everything, but I settled for something that was on sale (lots and lots of yarns that I am looking forward to work with!), a pair vintage plastic needles (I so want more of them), and tatting shuttles (I will tell you more about it next time).


You wish you were there? Well, you are not too late! It is on for this weekend in Alexander Palace, London.

Have a lovely weekend then!

Tutorial with Febrero es asi: granny squares!

Febrero es asi

Today I am really excited to present a new granny squares tutorial with Febrero es asi (a lovely blog written by Isabel). Granny squares (as you know) are fun to do and there are so many things you can make out of them starting with the most obvious of course - the blankets. You can crochet granny squares in different colours and make pillows, rugs, table runners and so on. The possibilities are endless! Oh... and before I forget, here is where you can access the tutorial for it!

So tell us, what are you going to make with your granny squares?
