Knitting and stitching show

I have had a busy few days, it has been the knitting and stitching show  in Harrogate I am afraid to say I spent 3 days at this show. I had a day to myself, I spent a day there with my mum then another day with some friends of ours which we met on Saturday. I tried not to spend too much money but my knitting side won out and I did buy some kits, one you knit on size 15 needles with 4 strands of wool, this is a jacket which they say you can knit in 10 hours I have done the back already, my mum is expecting this as a Christmas present, then a rather expensive knitted doll from a company from Australia I couldn't resist it and she has a wardrobe full of patterns to knit for her they also had patterns for what they called huggable friends these could also be used as for heated wheat/rice bags which I thought was a good idea and would make lovely presents. I also got some fashion yarns to make the french knitting necklaces with the pendents to match or when I have time I will bead them. I will take some pictures of my stash and show them next time.
