Just back from an exhausting but amazing week at the Ally Pally Knit and Stitch Show where I was exhibiting my knitted life “paintings” after being selected as a finalist in the UK Knitted Textile Awards (Open Category). I have never seen the show so busy, particularly on the Saturday with thousands of textile enthusiasts visiting us at the UK Hand Knitting Association stand. Our visitors made some lovely comments about my work, and I am delighted to say that after a hectic few days of judges wandering around with clipboards and faces that gave nothing away, I won the Silver Award in the Open Category.
The Gold Award in the Open Category was given to the very deserving and talented Sally Spinks with her Random Act of Kindness Series.
We’ve now got a few weeks to catch our breath before repeating the show at Harrogate on 21-24 November.
