Out and About Checking out Da Knitting

Somebody's been busy knitting, and it's not me!  Or at least, I didn't do this.  Actually, from the look of it, it looks more like crochet, if you are one of those people who can tell the difference.

It is a shop window in Knutsford, Cheshire.  This is a great shop called "Fibre and Clay".  It specializes in yummy knitted things and a lot of contemporary pottery/ceramics.  Now, I like the look of a funky tea pot as much as the next person, but I must admit it was the knits that got me.  Aren't those teddy bears cute?

Knutsford is a nice little place; I'd heard about it and thought, "I must go there someday."  The streets and shops were lovely, but I didn't especially like being DIRECTLY under the flight path of airplanes coming in to land at Manchester airport.  When the airplane overhead is so loud you can't speak to the person next to you, and you can physically count the rivets in the undercarriage, I think it's a bit TOO close!  I guess you get used it to if you live there.
