Looking forward to the Knitting and Stitching show

I'm looking forward to my annual visit to the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace in London.
 It's over the weekend of the 13th and 14th of October this year.

It's a big show in two halves. In one giant hall are the trade stalls selling every kind of material you could need for knitting and stitching and in another giant hall are the companies and individual makers selling their wares. To me the most interesting section is the area where textile graduates and professional makers show their ideas, often funky, often totally impractical but always interesting.
Tomorrow I'm planning a trip to London to see what's new with the changing season.
