Went off to Farnham with a list, came away with all I wanted which was crochet hooks, blocking wires and buttons for the cushion cover I am crocheting. I wanted to come away from cold metal hooks so bought these. Love the pink cover and colour coded handles.
No pictures of red buttons or blocking pins, but tube included t-pins and a tape measure so will be washing one of the shawls I knitted earlier and practice on that.
I found the show interesting, would like to have met up with peeps who post in Ravelry, especially in British Banter but of course have no idea of their real names, what they look like and where, if anywhere, they were gathering in the warren of rooms that is the Maltings. Maybe next time I will order a Ravelry badge, it may not guarantee an introduction. Near the end of my visit I met up with Sally of http://knitlotion.blogspot.co.uk/ , it was good to discuss the merits of different lace needles, couldn't believe how fine some were.
One of my observations at both the WDYTYA? show, at Unravel and generally when out and about where ladies gather together is how popular scarves are nowadays. As one who has about 50 scarves, including a couple of cowls, I note some designs and shapes are not as fashionable as others. I tend to wear them for warmth, to brighten up a plain top or to hide my neck so I was most delighted last Friday when Ian presented me with a scarf he'd spotted in a shop in Kingston.
The design and colours are so right, love the yarn and needles design, also it's snuggly warm.
