Quilt and Craft Show

On Sunday I was lucky to be able to go to the Quilt and Craft Show in Hamilton. I met my friend Julie and her sister in law and we spent over three hours there!
I was really impressed with this show. I have been to ones before and there was nothing that I loved. But this time I had a fantastic time. I saw things there that I haven't seen in NZ before and I saw a lot that was my style.
Here are the lovely things that I couldn't leave without.

Silken Straw from Alchemy Yarns. The colour is Voodoo (isn't that a great name for the colour).

Haiku Yarn from Alchemy Yarns. This has silk and mohair. I just loved the feel of this yarn and the colour (The night Air).

A wonderful book with really beautiful patterns for gifts by Rosalie Quinlan

A very interesting book about free form knitting and crochet bags by Prudence Mapstone.

And last but certainly not least some fabric. Lily Pond by Wendy Slotboom.

It was a great morning and very inspiring.

In the meantime , back to the lace knitting.
