Yarndale

I couldn’t resist writing a quick post to let you all know about a new event happening in Skipton this September.

Lots of people have told me “something” was happening, but it was only today, via twitter that all was revealed to me.

Skipton will be holding its very own Festival of Yarn – “Yarndale” – at Skipton Auction Mart on 28th and 29th September. You can find out more  and see a list of exhibitors on their website, facebook page or on twitter. Don’t you just love their knitted and crocheted logo, made by the local knit and Natter group?

  1. Oooooh – could this be a second woolly adventure for us? I’ve just mentioned it to Malcolm and he sounded fairly interested ……. and it’s just a few days before my birthday …….

#crochet #crochetgirlgang #neverenoughshawls #sheshed #madenotmanufactured #crochetlove Free food! Next best thing to growing your own food is eating other people's homegrown. I'm looking after my neighhour's garden & boy does he have a lot of radishes just now! I have written a blog post about more of my favourite (almost) free foods. Link in profile, now I'm off to pickle these radishes.

#mygardenrightnow #girlgardener #girlsthatgarden #permaculture #growyourown #ediblegarden #bakingandmaking #slowliving #organicgardening I do love a formal garden. I walk through this one every Friday on my way to knit group.  Castle Park is a hidden gem.
#gardens #castlepark #parksandgardens Thanks @simplycrochetmag for featuring my crochet picnic basket :) The pattern is available  now in Simply Crochet celebrations edition. You'll need a cardboard box to upcycle & some chunky cotton yarn, I used DMC Natura XL & finished it off with leather buckles from Bag Clasps. 
#crochet #crochetgirlgang #upcycling #reloved #crochet #makersgonnamake #lovecrochet Today I shall mostly be darning... these were the first socks I ever knitted, I resisted for years(turning heels, grafting toes all looked like too much faff), then I bought a book called Toe UpSocks Two at a Time & now I only wear handknitted socks. Because I love them, I shall darn the toe & keep wearing them for another 5 years!! (btw @lottieknits you sold me this yarn at Stash - happy days :)
