Thames Festival or I-Knit Weekender? That was the question I was faced two weekends ago. So ended up going to both.
This is the first time that I’ve been to the I-Knit Weekender (my daughter and husband was not feeling well last year so I had to give it a miss). I only visited the market area but I was chatting to a knitter who attended the Icelandic knitting class which sounded so interesting, I must book myself on a class next year.
One of the best part of the event was the Rowan Catwalk show hosted by Erika Knight where she discussed the latest knitting trend for Autumn/Winter 2010. There were a lot of Cables, Texture, Russian Doll and Long Mittens. Here are some of my favourites:

I came home with so much inspiration for my Autumn and Winter knitting. So I put on the kettle and made myself a hot honey drink in my Herdy mug which I bought at the Weekender and started knitting a woolly hat using this beautiful yarn (bought from John Lewis) that I had in my stash since January this year.
The next big event that I’m really looking forward to is ‘The Knitting and Stitching Show’…..oh I can’t wait. Fingers cross I’ll be able to go, must give my daughter and husband lots of vitamin C.
