Scavenger Hunt

Thursday, 3 May 2012


Hello there!
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.


  1. I'm very jealous of your goodies. Glad you managed to have a good day out, despite the cold!

  2. Sounds like fiber paradise, wish I lived closer to all the festivals.

  3. Wow, what a fun trip you had to the wool show and you have goodies to show for it. Fun! Glad you didn't drool. We're having cold rain too, but sun predicted for the weekend. Hope so. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. Glad to hear you had a good time! If it's any help the sheep are from the top - Badger Face Welsh Mountain, Shetland and in the bottom picture the grey sheep is a Gotland and the white one is a Gotland x Shetland. I love the picture of the brown alpaca!

    1. Hi Shearer Girl, thanks for that! I did stop by your stall and we had a chat!

  5. I love alpacas - they seem to be everywhere I go just lately!


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
