I hate to be all British and bang on about the weather, but all being well with trains and transport, I should be off to Olympia for The Knitting and Stitching Show tomorrow.
If you're not familiar with it, here's a little video about the show and what it has to offer:
Last October, Sarah and I visited the previous show, which was held at Alexandra Palace. Here's what I saw on the day and my review of that show - it was a lovely day so I was happy to accept an invite to the next one. I keep checking the weather reports and at the time of writing (11am on Thursday) it's all open and plans to be full steam ahead for the duration.
In terms of my plans for the day, I have a really tiny list of projects which I want to try and achieve during the year (all presents), and the materials and quantities I need for each of those. If I find suitable supplies at a decent price, I'll get them from the show. If not, I'm not too worried - I seem to receive offers and discount codes daily from various online retailers and have plenty of time to be picky. In terms of buying for projects for myself, I'm still on a spending ban so I'll refrain. I'm getting rather used to this spending ban malarkey.
If you're venturing to the show tomorrow too, we might see you there!
