York.

I'm off to York for a weekend of knitting, spinning, crochet, tatting (!) and general eating of cake and socialising. This started off as an informal gathering of a few friends from The Yarn Yard group on Ravelry and has mushroomed into us taking over every room in the convent. Yup, convent. We are staying at a B&B in the heart of York called the Bar Convent. I'm not sure exactly how many of us are going as some rooms are singles and some multiples, plus we have some people coming just on Saturday, but at least twenty. And there is a suggestions that perhaps one or two of the nuns from the convent are going to drop into see exactly what all these mad knitters are up to....

Should be fun. I've packed the camera as well as the spinning wheel so I'll let you know next week.
