Craft Show Shopping

Best show you the goodies I bought at the Craft show. There was so much to see and so much to tempt me even though I went "needing" nothing at all! My favourite stall is Hatched and Patched and I bought Anni's new book, a lovely little pattern, some felt and a whole box of punch needle thread.
I also came home with these little kits for some cute Santas and a lovely little purse with a zipper and needleturned owls.
My maddest purchase was the wool ( we weren't buying wool but this is cashmere so isn't counted) to make this lacy scarf. It was so beautiful but the pattern appears simple but isn't!!!!!!Thankfully it is very hole-y and so a few extra holes don't seem to matter. I also bought some nice silk yarn for Santa beards.
I also have to admit to buying another beautiful Clair Patterson, handknitted cardigan. So nice to bring home something that doesn't need to be made!

Lovely shopping Sylvia - well done! We didn't even buy the same things for a change! However, I did buy a beautiful Claire Patterson cardigan as well (different colour though)!!! Great minds think alike! x
