Origin - The London Craft Fair

It was only a couple of days ago that I realised that it was that time of year again, so despite having a massive to do list, yesterday I went into the big smoke to Origin at Somerset House.
I always enjoy Origin (used to be Chelsea Craft Fair) - there are some really inspirational makers and crafts people exhibiting each year. This year, I particularly liked the work of Lucy Adamson (no website):Jane Moore: and Hanne Rysgaard:I did actually buy some of Lucy's and Hanne's work but will save the pics for another day as I didn't manage to get any decent pics today.
Origin is on for a further week (although with different exhibitors in week 2) if you fancy a visit. Somerset house is a really lovely location too - especially when the sun is shining as it was yesterday.

I did manage to get a couple of pics of some new stockings I have made however - I've had the purple sparkly jumper for some time and hadn't really found anything good to do with it, until nowThe green and pink one kind of reminds me of rhubarbIt's late, but I have a stack of bird decorations on my desk calling my name...
