Would you like to meet for lunch, say at 1300? Ideas please where would be best to meet! The Tea Room can be booked for £21 per head but is there anywhere else to sit down and munch? It would be great to meet other Woolly Hugs knitters.
Happy to help if you still need it then. I'll be bringing something to do - either knitting or (more likely) crochet. I use the purl bee blog for my granny square help. It's in American terminology but it is a great step by step guide. Just remember to use a treble where it talks about DC.
i was wondering if i wriggle my way in and meet some mummies along the way I have heard of this show but it sounded a bit daunting for me to go because ally pally is huuuuuge! Does anyone mind if i squeeze in to your little get together
I've just booked my ticket - getting very excited now.
I'm going to be at the show fairly early - as the sleeper gets into London at around 7am. I'm going to find somewhere for a leisurely breakfast, then wander over to Ally Pally and have a browse before meeting up with the rest of you. Then I'll have a couple of hours before I have to head off for my train back north again. I might spend the journey enjoying my new yarns and doing some knitting or crochet - or I might just fall asleep!
I'm not sure what I will be wearing, but there's a picture of me on my profile, and I will be carrying a bright red rucksack. I'm planning to obtain my picnic at M&S, so will probably be clutching a carrier bag too.
I am excited and nervous, and am crossing my fingers that I sleep on the train, and don't get a sore hip like I did last time.
I just have to make sure I don't buy more yarn than I can carry!
My journey home was great - as far as Euston Preston, where the train terminated and we were all turned off to wait for another train to take us to Carlisle, where I waited 50 minutes in the cold for a train that finally took me home. I could have got an earlier train, but it had only three coaches, and was packed to the gunnels with its own passengers, and people turfed off our train, so I decided to wait for a bigger, more comfy train. Hero dh drove in to Glasgow and drove me home, then cooked me a late supper.
But it was absolutely worth it - the show was great, and meeting all of you was even greater!
