Day Three at the Knitting & Stitching Show

Day Three at the Knitting and Stitching Show was one of the busiest days I have ever seen at Alexandra Palace! We were very happy that so many enthusiastic visitors came to talk to us on the Knitted Textile Awards Stand.

During the afternoon, the Winners of the Knitted Textile Awards, Open Category were announced. Gold in the Open Category went to the extremely talented Sally Spinks with her fabulous work, Random Acts of Kindness. As well as being incredibly delicate and beautiful, Sally's work brought a smile to the face of every visitor. Visit Sally's website to see the wonderful images and contents of the bell jars more closely.

Silver in the Open Category went to Nicky Barfoot and her beautiful knitted life paintings. Visit Nicky's blog to see the work in detail and how she developed her idea from her amazing life paintings to the stunning knitted art she displayed at Alexandra Palace.

  1. Thanks Emma! Also Emma is being super modest - her work was much admired and so many visitors to the stand were in awe of the technical details and ability displayed in her work - including me! Well done Emma - people loved your work.
