Love Wool Love Leeds

Ah 2 things that I love! So as mentioned yesterday there was a big event on at the Corn Exchange in Leeds. I have always loved this building so it felt great to be spending the day there with lots of lovely knitting pals.


Ah the mighty and beautiful Corn Exchange!

So i got down there like 10.45 to be greeted by the lovely Gwen and George, these 2 ladies are super stars and help me nearly every week with one knitting drama or other.



This was the learn to knit area


ohh wedding fair there next week! dont mind if i do!


there are tons of photo of this gorgeous building


serving the customers


there has been a competition at BAA RAM EWE lately for a tea cosy competition, i loved this one.



Rowan 'supplied' some inspriation



more tea cosies 





Nats popped down for a bit too to work on her Lauriel



there were loads of stalls there and it seemed really busy which is good.


Im very pleased to see there are lots of new cute shops popping back up in the corn exchange

i love these needles



Herdy were there too, such a cute stall, i got my bag from them at Woolfest.


fancy restaurant downstairs


so this is the whole area, it was a great turn out.


i nipped out for some fresh air and admired this crazy old building




I cant quite remember how many people i taught to knit, it was pretty scary but exciting at the same time, you never forget the person who teaches you to knit right?

Hannah teaching a newbie



These 4 girls were so funny, they were like, we're knittng, we're like grannys erm.... but they were funny and all took to it quite well.

There you go!

So overall a fabulous day had by all, i got in well after 5 a bit knackered but completely worth it.

I forgot all about this!!!! I was going to go. However, got a tad distracted as we got our new bunny yesterday morning!!

I really wish I was able to get to a knitting club. I miss not being able to physically chat to people who knit and crochet. Or even to have friends who share my hobby!

My OH gets this glazed over look - as I do when he talks about his hobby!!!
