So I drove to Yarndale on the Saturday and left the small people with my hubby.
It was a busy one. Busiest I've seen
I went with my Mam and sis.
So favourite stall, hands down was Five Moons, I had ordered from them previously and was really excited to check the colours out in person.
What I loved about this stall is the 20g mini skeins and the 50g ones. I don't use much for socks so this was fab and obvs half the price.
I got these to start with
I was shopping for five moons and 2 garment quanties for these.
So a 4ply jumper for me. I wanted something super special as its a LOT of SS so wanted it to be fab. I had lots of options and flittered from stall to stall.
Easyknits always a winner.
Or these, this was Suffolk Sock LITG I think
Yeh I couldn't decide. I was going to stripe the body with a third colour so in the end I got these.
I'm excited about starting this one. Gonna be a giant project but hoping gorgeous wool will help.
And this is Chuck which is worsted/Aran.
I knew I wanted something 'commercial' really just coz handdyed would be pricey.
So I got this....
It's super soft and a lovely colour. It's called Fog. I'm excited to cast on.
I got some scrummy buttons, as did my Mam
We met my lovely friend Gwen and wandered together and stopped for lunch.
I met the lovely Amy from The Stranded podcast and stranded dyeworks company, I really enjoy her podcast so was great to meet her.
I got these scrummy things too
Pretty isn't it. And I thought a bit differed.
I may have gone back to five moons.
Super pleased with these. The brights are for a shawl to go with something else I have and mini's are for heels and toes.
So a pretty impressed haul
I am aiming to get to Edinburgh Yarn Festival ( massively pregnant last time) so best get knitting.
Now our busy 2 weeks are over, awesome holiday and lots of birthday celebrations I am ready for a bit of doing nothing.
I'm still working on my Lush Cardigan and aiming for t done by the end of the month.
