As a half term treat I took the children into London for the day…..to visit some woolly critters in Brixton. I think my two teenagers were expecting a rather stuffy, old fashioned collection of granny squares and pullovers, but they seemed genuinely impressed by the dinosaurs, tigers and pugs that Louise conjurers from yarn and a pair of knitting needles.
Our trip also took in some fantastic market stalls, street food and a flying visit to the dinosaurs in the Natural History Museum so we were all happy.
Oh, I almost forgot, the blue and green swirly pattern shown in my ‘Library Treasure Trove’ post was in the V&A – it was a paper mini dress from the 1960s and still in immaculate condition – quite incredible!
