It's been a bit of whirlwind here with two knitting-related shows, my hubby travelling, my mom visiting, and my little guy on half-term. And through all of which I still have this nagging cold. Unfortunately, it's meant that the blog has suffered.
Can I make it up to you with pictures of my day out in Paris last week? I arrived at the train station WAY too early, but with plenty of time for this:
Then it was off on the train to Paris and the l'Aiguille en Fete show:
The place was a total CRUSH of knitters and crafters, so most of my photos are jostled and blurry and I tried to be as steady as I could:
A highlight for me was seeing the L'Oisive The et Tricot booth, since there wouldn't be an opportunity to go to the actual shop:
My single skein treat of the day came from their booth:
It was hard after that not to buy anything else!
When we were mostly yarned out, we decided to see what other sights Paris had to offer:
Around the corner from this little street in Les Halles we found La Droguerie:
Then there was barely enough time for a bite of steak frites and red wine before we headed back to Gare du Nord for our trip back to London.
While Paris was done in less than twelve hours, the actual travel day involved leaving the flat at 5:15am and not getting back until about 11:30pm. Completely knackered and walked off my feet, but also completely happy! A big thank you to my DH, who was kind enough to send me for the day.
