I-Knit Weekender

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:

Pattern on Pattern:

Cream textured jumper:

Giant Cables:

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. 

[I bought the Stitch markers from The Bothered Owl and I made the coaster a long time ago]

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.
