I flew over to the UK for a week as you know, for a quick visit with M. As an extra, we were planning to go to Ally Pally with the girls. So, M and I travelled to London on Friday and went to Stash Yarns where Diane works.
Now take a look at what we had to fondle:
And for all you Koigu fans:
As we were fondling, Helen came in! We had a quick chat before she headed off, back up north. It was lovely to meet you me dear! 🙂
Now obviously, as we were going to Ally Pally the next day, I wasn’t really supposed to spend anything. Wrong. I bought loads of cashmere and some Suri Merino:
Nice, nah? 😀
We spent a lovely afternoon chatting and browsing and fondling and even doing some knitting in between. After meeting up with Diane’s other half, we spent the evening at a lovely Thai restaurant in Fulham called Blue Elephant. Stunning. These are the Orchids that they gave the us as we left, after a fantastic meal:
Here we are at Ally Pally:
And some individual piccies.
And only the group piccie of Kate, because she’s camera shy and wouldn’t let me take a photo of her on her own..
Once again I spent way too much money. More cashmere, some baby camel and Knitpicks:
I just want to say thanks to all the girls for a lovely, lovely day. I had an absolutely great time. And Ali, the cookies were fabulous. Send us the recipe!! 🙂
