Yarndale.what a wonderful day.

 The entrance hall was decked with bunting that Attic24's Lucy had asked people to make.She ended up with 6,000 triangles!They came from all over the world.
 Look at all this yummy knitted foodThe strawberry cake was amazing.
 I had taken my daughter with me and she managed to snap me having a word with Lucy.What a lovely,talented lady.My hand knitted lacy shawl was greatly admired by many.Quite an ego boost!
 Some of the things I bought.Angora,alpaca,sock yarn,a Learn to Spin kit,some needles and this kit.
 this is something I have never seen before and I can't wait to give it a go.this kit makes a unique bracelet.
Felting was a big thing at Yarndale and I bought the above to give me some practise.The Poppy kit makes two brooches and a purse kit.
I also bought my daughter some yarn to knit a scarf.I spent a fortune but have activities to keep me going for months.There was so much talent and creativity at Yarndale.Sarah and I kept saying "look at that.Amazing.".It was lovely to have a day out with my daughter(Daddy took the girls to Chester Zoo).Thank you Lucy from Attic24 for organising it.
P.S.Annie.did you know you were mentioned in the programme.

  2. It looks like heaven! How exciting it must have been to meet the clever Lucy, she is such an inspiration to so many isn't she? I really like your green alpaca wool, I would be itching to make something with that!
