London calling

I'm back from my trip, though I'm fully wishing I weren't. I don't even know where to start when talking about it; it was just a wonderful time, full of great people and sights and things, and it was a lovely diversion from real life. My friend's wedding was absolutely gorgeous. I met some amazing people. I got almost no knitting done at all. And I saw Hamlet. Such a great week.

Here's a very small selection of pictures...




At iKnit in London:


The wall of Amy Butler fabrics I drooled over at Liberty (and the photo I got scolded for taking :):


Mini-David Tennant did join me for the trip, and I brought him with me to the Doctor Who exhibit, of course!


And Hamlet was absolutely brilliant, and David Tennant mesmerizing. We were six rows from the stage and so close, it was amazing. We went to the stage door afterward and got incredibly lucky, as he came out the door directly behind us instead of through the actual stage door. And, yes, I did get his autograph. And, no, I did not show him mini-David Tennant. I don't want him to think I'm entirely nuts.


Such a wonderful trip. Now to return the real world...

How could you not show him?! I bet he'd have thought it was awesome!

Aw man. I bet he would've loved a plush version of him. Looks like the trip was awesome though. I want to live in England...

BARTY CROUCH JR is David Tennant? I mean, REALLY, what do I know about Dr. Who? Nothing. Never seen an episode. But here, la-di-da, Dr. Who is David Tennant and I've never actually seen him and...well....I guess I have.

LOL. I feel so enlightened. But, having seen him in Harry Potter first, I'm going to have to say I have the association with that, and hence, find him terribly creepy. Would have been better had I seen Dr. Who first.

ANYWAY - looks like a fabulous trip! So glad you had fun!

Wow, how awesome! It looks like you had a fabulous trip. And how cool that you got to meet David Tennant and get his autograph. So glad that the trip was all you had hoped.

We're looking forward to seeing you again at knitting!
