Hello everyone.. long time no see.

so two weeks ago I attended my first ever fibre and wool festival. I began the day early at the local train station I had to get the train to the beautiful lake district for this year’s Woolfest in Cockermouth, Getting the on public transport was interesting, I got in lots of crochet time lets put it that way. Anyways lets get back to the interesting stuff.. YARN!!! when I arrived at the home of Woolfest I was overwhelmed and decided to just wander round to get the feel of the place first and then get down to business of buying yarn.

Walking around Woolfest was brilliant and I saw so many designers that I had only admired through the internet such as the wonderful Amanda Perkins and her husband from the natural dye studio, who was very helpful choosing my skein šŸ™‚ and the lovely lady at Baa Ram Ewe who helped with choosing my skein of Titus:-) . I was so spoilt for choice that I only came away with a small amount of yarn. I could have bought so much more šŸ™‚ Ā I also met some lovely Alpacas too.. aren’t they lovely.

So, down to the details.. the ultra squishy yarn are

The Natural Dye studio GODIVA 4ply sock yarn in Lynbridge yellow, Baa Ram Ewe’s Titus in eecup and 5 balls of Drops Nepal in golden yellow/ olive green šŸ™‚ actually come to think of it.. I have bought enough to keep me happy and my birthday present:-)

Many Thanks to everyone to my 500 visitors!!! I was so surprised, I love to see all of the new countries on my world map. What has everyone been up to recently. I have almost finished my sweater so I have some new projects for you all šŸ™‚
