I managed to get a few moments with her and asked about her latest project, that is still a work in progress and will be a new blanket in Autumn colours. So I succumbed and bought the new pack of lovely autumny colours -
|My camera's not doing the coloours justice as they are lovely|
Oh how the members of the Crochet Club laughed when I got back on the coach with another bag of wool, but my blanket will have to wait until all the other crochet items are finished!! Too many on the go at once.
You may remember these beautiful colours, also put together by Attic24 for the Coast Ripple Blanket that I bought -
well, sad person that I am I asked Lucy to sign my pattern that came with the pack.

However whilst at the show, I had time to watch a fashion show sponsored by Coats and compered by Stuart Hillard who was a semi-finalist in the Great British Sewing Bee. The models were all stick thin youngsters modelling knitted items by well known fashion designers and I did wonder when the older models would come on stage. After all would these youngsters wear, or even make, any of these items, some of which I did covet? Would they not have been better on older people, of which I am one, because we are the people who might make them?
Food for thought?
