One very sunny day last week I went over to Birmingham for Craft Hobby and Stitch trade show, I usually go with my Mum and sister, we've been going for a good 6 years I think. It's always loads of fun and great to get a look at lots of exciting new craft products for my Mum's shop. This year however it clashed with half term in Norfolk so I was dispatched to seek out the new products by myself (though I'm not going to lie I spent most of the time admiring gorgeous yarns).
I also got to listen to Perri Lewis talk about blogging, which was pretty ace.
Some of the highlights for me, were the gorgeous Erika Knight stand ::
The crochet samples on the the DMC stand ::
Super delicious Fyberspates ::
(I recently crocheted a sample in Scrumptious and can categorically say that it is indeed Scrumptious)
New Rowan sock yarn ::
All in all a great (though utterly exhausting day).
