Yesterday I went to WoolFest 2011, up in Cockermouth.
It involved 5hours of driving, parking in a field and coming home to hungry cats, but it was fantastic!
From Krafty Koala I bought a new roll for my Double Point needles (owl themed), owl stitch markers, “Ash Cloud” Sparkle sock yarn, “Lilac Dreams” 4ply, “Gail” shawl pattern and “Scroll lace scarf” pattern.
From Yarn Addict Anni (the designer of the Trinity shawl) I got Twinkletoes sock yarn, “Elegance scarf” pattern and “Fame handwarmers” pattern.
From Laughing Hens I got some baby alpaca 4ply.
From Toft I got a wrist warmers kit (awaiting the pattern – she’d sold out of it by late lunch on day one!).
From Wingham Wool Works I picked up 3 500g hanks of Guernsey 5-ply.
From DT Craft and Design I got a Kool Aid dyeing kit.
I also got a Woolfest 2011 Project bag. Surprisingly this holds all of the above!
