Harrogate Knitting & Stitching Show

I went to Harrogate yesterday for the Knitting & Stitching Show.  I was based at the Knitting & Crochet Guild's stall for most of the day, but had time to look around the rest of the show when it got quieter towards the end of the day.  (Didn't buy anything though.  Not a thing.  I really don't need any more yarn, but I don't always manage to remember that.)  

I spent a lot of time looking at the finalists' entries for the 2014 Knitted Textile Awards - a UK Hand Knitting Association scheme.   Here are a few of the entries I particularly liked (and managed to get a decent photo of, too).  

I liked Camille Hardwick's Oxymoron piece - she won first prize, I later discovered.

Becca Tansley's jacket was inspired by the rusting steel and rivets of a Victorian railway bridge.

And Claire Sams knitted pigeon, scavenging discarded food, is fun.
