When we visited the show a few years ago I was still very new to woolycraft and was completely overwhelmed and went home empty handed. This time I felt like I had the opposite experience. I know what colours, yarns and plies I like to craft with, I know what wooly direction I am heading in next and I am just so happy to look, to admire and to ask lots of questions.
The wool show had so much of what I love, what I am passionate about and then more.
It had fun, creative displays.
And I LOVE wool, so I loved it.
And I'm guessing the sheep fanciers and farmers, the wool artists and crafters, the fashion peeps, those interested in cooking the sheep and lamb's meat, the families and the stall holders all loved it too. There seemed to be something in it for everyone. The farmers in their work boots, cowboy hats and blue vests all the way through to the lady standing next to me at one stage wearing a crocheted technicolour dream coat and knitting a cabled throw while making her yarn purchases.
Such a great day.
And while we're on all things woolly, I must thank all those who entered the Tikki pattern giveaway. I think the beautiful comments made this giveaway my favourite to date.
And without further ado, I asked the random generator for a number between one and 201 and it gave me number 37 - Brave New Fiona!!
Email me your addy and the 5 Tikki patterns you choose and we'll get them to you asap.
And to everyone else, watch this space because I have another woolly giveaway coming up really soon.
So, tell me peeps, how was your weekend?
