Back from the NEC


Got back from the NEC an hour or so ago and am currently waiting for the oven to heat enough to throw in a pizza - haute cuisine this evening chez stroppy-cats. Amelia is, however, obligingly eating any daddy-long-legs within range... Quick pic of my show knitting; the view from the stand, and a Gryffindor scarf (PoA/GoF version) for a small friend's 8th birthday... she's got heavily into all things Harry Potter this summer and has a birthday in late November...

The show was very good fun if relatively quiet compared to Ally Pally and Harrogate. We chatted to a lot of people who hadn't been to that sort of thing before; and that was great. I got a natter with Gill on Saturday, and caught up with Fred on Sunday; he brought Noonie along later and I met her (but had completely failed to realise this was the weekend she was doing a skydive; well, evidently she survived!) ... The knitting content was wonderful; there were a couple of notable omissions because they were off elsewhere but I came, I saw and I spent (within budget). Then we broke down the exhibition like insane, driven women, packed it all into Sue's car and came home...

Haven't sorted out the 73 photos I took over the weekend yet, most of which need rotating and otherwise mucking around with, but will blog some tomorrow - I wisely took the day off to recover. However, one rather blurry pic.

Spot the difference puzzle for objects lounging around: one blob of Hand Maiden Angel Hair mohair (colour Vintage); one blob of cat.

Hint; although essentially the same shape as the cat, the mohair doesn't look pissed off...

Nice yarn! Hope the pizza was too...

How do you tell whether mohair is pissed off? Glad to see you succumbed to it:)

Does the mohair purr?

just followed the link to the HP scarves and am amused to note that my primary school was Gryffindor but my high school was Slytherin; think that must say something about teenage girls...
