Thanks to the Stylecraft Team and some lovely customers I had a wonderful day at the NEC....hope you have had a good show too.
They built me a wonderful crochet corner for the show.
Thanks to everyone who came to say hello and talk about my book, the blogs and the crochet.
some lovely new yarns, great new colours and my crochet patterns all launched at the show
anyone who works with lots of colours will be pleased to learn Stylecraft have added a gorgeous new orange called Spice (shade 1711) to the Special DK range.
Sorry I forgot to take a close up of it but it is a lovely orange, a lot more subtle than the Jaffa and will be a great addition along with the other new shades of Stone (shade 1710) Gold (shade 1709) and Petrol (shade 1708).
Can't wait to play with the New Nordic super chunky...ready for the Autumn designs.

It's a mix of two shade that look quite a big contrast, but become very subtle when you knit or crochet
Well done Stylecraft for a lovely stand.
Had a play with the Alpaca, in Lime (shade 6015), a gorgeous yarn...thinking of making myself a new cardy/coat for me in this yarn.
Sample: Mock rib with a popcorn edge.
Love my iPad but it bit me!
Can't believe it, all I did was to pick it up and I ended up with a really sharp pain in my wrist that wouldn't go away all day, even the pain kilers didn't work....made for a very miserable day, I couldn't type or crochet.
This morning it seems to be back to normal and no pain at all.
No idea other than a trapped nerve, what could have happened.
Back to posts and hooky time again today
