I'm been a bad blogger, missed my Sunday post.
On Saturday I went to Wonderwool along with my friend Romain and a coach load of others.
You may have read other's blogs about reports of the cold, and I too, can confirm it was freezing, concrete barns were not built for warmth.
Anyhoo there were some lovely wooly sights.
The Alpacas from Toft Alpacas.
Various sheep, I didn't note down what they all were - sorry!
The goodies I bought. 500g of 4ply to dye, a summer cardi perhaps?
Some buttons, I never seem to have enough.
A large button ~ the coaster to give scale, to go on a as yet, unmade felted bag.
Some alpaca/merino mix to dye. This is soooo soft.
Lastly, a cone of dark purple New Lanark Aran from Woolfish. You may remember the Woolfish Jacket I made back in November, this is the same yarn.
We had a super time squishing, chatting to the stall holders and just being surrounded by wooly goodness. It was all very tiring, and I need a quick nap on the coach on the way home. Romain confirmed however, that I didn't dribble, snore or talk, so all was well.
Despite my bold prediction last week, the cable jacket isn't yet finished. I'm on the collar so nearly, but not quite.
Well, I hope you have a nice weekend, this nasty cold rain stops and we get some sun!
Bye for now..............Clicky Needles.
