The London Knitting & Stitching Show - Alexander Palace - 10th October 2014

The London Knitting & Stitching Show

Get Hooked on Crochet Coach Trip

We set off as planned from the designated pick up points in North Dorset

We had a woolly quiz, a woolly personality test, 2 sing songs & lots of fun!

Many of the ladies, crocheted granny squares on the journey as we planned to make a little blanket for a local charity, so that they could raffle or auction it to raise funds.

I think, at the last count it was over 190 squares

And these two lovely ladies have offered to join them together, into not one but two blankets as there were so many squares made

The ID badges made of yellow measuring tape were greatly admired by not only all who wore them, but by people at the show too!

Even our lovely driver Jeff of JFS travel wore one

He did a marvelous job of driving us there safely & on time too!

Here are some of the exhibits at the show

Above is Jenni by the Flower Garden & that's me below

Even though we got stuck in LOADS of traffic on the way home

Our coach load of 44 were all happy hookers, knitters & stitchers & all want to go again next year!!

I have had loads of emails of thanks for organising the trip.  Here are a few of them:

Many thanks for organizing our awayday to the Knit & Stitch on Friday - loved every minute especially the 'in-flight' entertainment.  Nobody does it better!

Kindest regards,
