Woolfest is this Friday and Saturday, and I've managed to squeeze enough time out of the hectic packing/child schedule to go for the day on the Scottish Fibres bus. We'll only be there for five hours and that's on the busy Saturday, but better than last year when I didn't manage to get there at all. Not as good as 2006 though, when I went for three amazingly child-free nights of camping and two full days of Woolfest!
So...anyone else going, that I should look out for? I'll be wearing a (home made) Ravelry badge with "Spinning Fishwife" on it, because some of the stall holders will give you 10% off if you identify yourself as a Ravelry member, and also because I want folk that "know" me to say hello. There's a Bloggers Corner and meet-up point as well this year. And of course I'll be heading for the Knitting and Crochet Guild's stand, to have another look at Sue's knickers!
I don't quite know what I'm looking for when it comes to shopping though. I'm well stashed up and at the moment I'm not knitting or spinning a lot, not with it being summertime. Summer is for camping and the allotment. But...I want some of Scottish Fibres rosewood circs, plus some nice sock weight yarn for a Forest Canopy shawl for relatively straightforwards holiday knitting. After that? We'll see. Small tasty morsels though, rather than sweaters-worth. And no fleece. I'm up to my eyeballs in fleece! Perhaps I might get a really nice spindle though, to take on holiday.
So....see you there???
