Woolfest 2012

Hello! How is everyone? So I have finally got around to blogging about Woolfest! I don't feel like i have stopped lately so here goes.

So i went home on thursday ready for a early morning to Woolfest.

So here is me and my sis, 7.30am


Right lets talk weather! I rained and rained and rained but not a little rain CRAZY rain crazy!! (more pics to follow)

But we arrived at Cockermouth and picked up Nicolas friend, Sharon who was visiting from Auz!

Sharon FYI is the fastest knitter in all of the land, check out her blog, seriously!


So we plodded through a VERY soggy car park/field



With soggy shoes and jeans we were in!


The gals had a go on the Ashfords i think its called



Sharon was particularly excited to meet Kate Davies.


this is a little snap shot of the lovely Laal Bears shop we may have all purchased something from her. 


random shot


I had my had on because it was stupid cold and so did sharon so we could spot each other easier.


Back to Kate Davies, Nic had gone back to the car to get me more layers, mainly my raincoat which became my best friend over the next couple of days!


oh i forget there name but man these buttons are fabby


after lunch, Leon, Sharons hubby joined us. FYI the most patient man on the planet!


This was sharon in Sparkle Duck, and no they were not trying to steal her hat lol

So after we swam to the car, had a drink, me and nic went to our hotel to lay out goodies out!
