I've had a fabulous day and met some amazing people. I've taught a few people how to crochet, helped some out with crocheting in the round and turning chains and generally chatted to people about knitting, crochet, sewing and craft in general. I really enjoyed passing on my skills to other people and have now been inspired to get my crochet workshops up and running and, hopefully, set up my own Craft Club for children in my local area.

However, the most impressive exhibition for me was the knitted aquarium. It is truly amazing and if you get chance, you must see it (the pictures below really don't do it justice!) It has been knitted and crocheted by volunteers and then put together to create a scene. The outside is the beach, cliffs and seaside complete with a pirate, fisherman, puffins, sandcastle and Punch and Judy. Then you walk inside to an underwater, with special effect lighting, to see fish, jelly fish, sharks and other underwater creatures. Every time you look at it you see something different and I could have spent hours looking at every little part. Best of all, it is all in aid of the RNLI and is raising money for them.
It has been a long day but I have enjoyed myself so much. I can't wait to volunteer at the next show!
Until next time.
