Yarndale

Another weekend- another crafty show!

I didn’t make it to Yarndale last year, so I was very excited to hear that Eleanor from Knit Nottingham (voted best yarn shop in the Midlands two years running in the British Knitting Awards) was planning a coach trip again. Read Eleonor’s blog about the day here.

It really is knitters heaven! I had a small budget, which I spent quite early in the day on a couple of blankets from Longwood Blankets– and I then found it very difficult not to blow the budget on some baby camel and silk yarn from Watercolours and Lace– it was soooo soft!

A lovely day was had by all and here is my overview in pics.

I fell in love with the Alpaca’s. Particularly the one in the picture above- I’ve never met such a smiley alpaca! A few years ago I went on holiday to Devon and spent my birthday at The Alpaca Park. It was one of the best days I’ve ever had- I really adore alpacas and I’ve found a place in Sheffield called Mayfield Alpacas, which I think should be the destination for our next knitting road-trip!
