Knitting and Stitching Show Harrogate - Part 4 - Spending Time

Visiting the Harrogate show in terms of buying opportunities is like alighting in Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. Endless stalls of fabulous must-have, just-can't-do-without fibres, yarns, fabrics and threads.

I will only buy what I need.

I know what I am looking for.

I have a list.

I lied.

I lied over and over again.

But I came home thrilled beyond measure over my bag of Habu goodies. Who could resist raw silk wrapped paper and raw silk tassar yarns which make me sigh when I look at them?

Artisan tempted me with beautiful hand-dyed linen lace yarn in soft pewter, natural flax and most wondrously so so soft seaweed silk yarn in pure ivory. I was lost!

For anyone who has experienced the fibre extravaganza that is Oliver Twists, well you will know what happened next... undone and beyond...

Spending time indeed.
