Well, I took what I considered to be a well-earned day off yesterday and went to the show at Olympia. As I had suspected it wasn't heavy on the knitting (mostly sewing and paper-craft) but there were a few good yarn stalls, including, wait for it, one for a company that specialises in Possum yarn, yes real Possum! Apparently they're not endangered, practically vermin in New Zealand, and they've been killing off all the other semi-extinct species in the country, which justifies their use in yarn.
I managed to come away with a small selection of yarn, a home-dyeing sock kit (yes, I'll believe it when I see it too) and a large selection of ceramic buttons in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They're my favourite kind and hard to find, so I pick them up whenever I see them.
Look out for another post over the weekend xx
