The Knitting and Stitching Show

I went to the The Knitting and Stitching Show in Alexandra Palace on Saturday. This year instead of card making and the many other non knitty and stitchy crafts they normally have, there was supplier stands with lots and lots of nice yarns. All variety of fibres.... silks, alpaca, wools, cottons.... in a rainbow of colours even hand-dyed yarns.

I bought a few bargain yarns :) from different sellers

and a book from the nice Sockopus lady, she wraps everyones purchases so nicely and added a stitch marker to each package. I don't want to spoil the package by opening it :)

John Foxx and Tiny Colour Movies

Went to a really good concert on Saturday at The ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts) John Foxx played two shows.
The first half John played his newly composed soundtracks to Tiny Colour Movies which was shown onscreen as he played. The film is found fragments of Super 8 film from a collection of Arnold Weizcs-Bryant, it was very interesting not what I was expecting. I really enjoyed it and could have listened and watched hours more. John even answered questions about the film and his music after the session.
Than the second half was his 1980 debut album Metamatic (my teenage bedroom music) it was excellent. A great night out.
