Back from Woolfest......

Back from Woolfest. If you weren`t there, you should have been. It was amazing.

But I`m tired and it`s too late to blog much tonight. I`ll just give you one pix. This is of the Newcastle contingent that we met up with on the campsite, Gourdongirl and myself, pictured with our communal shopping haul.



Okay, two pictures then! Close up of the haul........



(You just don`t want to know the rough estimate of how much that little lot cost in total. Let`s just say everyone that was there has a taste for classy yarn and fibre, okay?)

More to come.

Glad the weather behaved enough for you to get that photo. I think if Becca and I had added ours to the pile we would have needed a second blanket. ;)

Great to meet you. Hopefully see you some time in Newcastle.

I think we would have needed another blanket too for the MASSIVE amount of yarn purchased by Becca and the knit nurse... make a trip down our way soon, mind, so that we can all get together and compare stories. And songs ;)

Beautiful haul of yarns and fibers Val. I was intrigued by the large wooden needles, too. I love that tent you bought. Looks very big and comfortable for camping.

What an incredible haul!!! I haven't been to a wool/fiber fest since the end of May, and now I am going to go and see when the next one in New England is!

Those kittens are so adorable. I have a very soft spot for black cats.
