All The Fun Of The Fair

All The Fun Of The Fair

We're pretty lucky in London, with members of the knitting community opening shops here and there!

The latest to open is owned by the lovely Buzz, who I first met when she had a stall in Spitalfields on Fridays, and I used to raid her bargain basket on a regular basis.

Now she has a lovely shop in Kngly Court, just off Carnaby Street, filled with yarns, treats and associated goodies.

I showed great self-control, which is unusual for me. The yarn is Opal, but double-knitting which I hadn't seen before.

The pattern book is from the huge collection of vintage/retro at the front of the shop - I can't believe they're only 50p each.

The knitted doughnut is because I'd had a particularly bad week and it's the only kind of doughnut that will do for someone who can't eat wheat.
