Harrogate weekend

 

















25th to 28th November saw Chris and I staying in the George Hotel Harrogate, a special offer break with Shearings Self Drive. These dates just happened to coincide with the Harrogate Knitting and Sewing exhibition at the International Centre, which also happened to be literally across the street from the hotel.
It was a wonder exhibition with lots of different crafts on show, and the above pictures are of a completely knitted Christmas Tree, made for a charity. The branches were bamboo poles covered in green knitted dish cloths, and the array of bells, baubles, candles and chains was amazing. After the show I understand everything was to be dismantled and sold.
While I was enjoying the show Chris went to York to the Train exhibition, so we were both full of news when we met up later for dinner. Sunday was spent driving through the Yorkshire Dales, visiting Theakston Brewery and an outlet village.. lovely weekend, may have to do it again next year.
