Woolfest Here I Come!

Photo copyright: Woolfest

To say I’m excited about travelling up to Cumbria on Friday for this year’s Woolfest is a bit of an understatement. In between catching up with old friends, meeting some of my favourite designers and dyers, there might just be time to add to my “Yarn Collection” – please don’t call it a stash – makes it sound like something to be hidden away or kept secret! (…ok so there are some balls of wool, a much regretted purchase of eyelash yarn and a few bits and bobs I bought in moments of madness hidden under the bed, but they don’t really count do they?)

I’m really looking forward to finally meeting Jeni at the Fyberspates stand, so I can tell her in person just how wonderful the new Scrumptious Collection book is and saying hello to Kerrie over at Inside Crochet’s stall, I may even take my latest incarnation of the circles scarf to show her.

Then of course there’s the ewe’s milk ice cream which is just sublime.

We’ll be staying with Mr T’s parents at the other end of Cockermouth, so I’m hoping there will be cake  too and a chance to catch up on family gossip.

If you’re going, look out for me and say hello. I know there are heaps of Fibre + Clay customers going, so do let me know if you’ll be there so we can show off our new purchases.

Finally, a big hurrah to all the members of The Woolclip for organising a fantastic 2 days yet again, I can’t imagine how much work goes into organising Woolfest, but I know how much we all appreciate it and I’m so glad they do it.

    I hope that Woolfest was all that you hoped it would be and more. If you did by chance add to your “Yarn Collection”, bring it along to show us on Friday, I’d love to see. Jackie D

  • And so it begins - checking the text actually fits the flatplan, swatching, proofreading & wondering why I put myself through this! New book nerves!!! Really looking forward to sharing this one' progress from plans to print over the next few months

About to cast on a baby cardigan, an excuse to use these beautiful buttons from @textilegarden. I like to use natural fibres and this wool & mohair blend from @thefibrecompany is a firm favourite, especially as it contains a proportion of British wool. We should celebrate our British wool industry & the farmers & shepgerds who give us beautiful, sustainable fibres to work with.

My review copy of @emmavarnam 's new book just arrived. Can't wait to sit down with a cuppa and enjoy this! Perfect inspiration for the ladies on my next granny squares workshop.

Lucky my neighbour saves all hers & what was left is now in  one of my @littlewrenpottery bowls. It feels like we're approaching peak autumn here, the starlings have stripped the rowan tree of its berries, the oak leaves are turning and the forest floor is strewn with sweet chesnuts. This really is my favourite season.

I spent the weekend staying with a friend in Derbyshire, every time I visit the view from my bedroom window changes a little. On Saturday morning I sat drinking tea in bed watching the river, hoping to see a kingfisher, but content just to see the ducks!
