Despite it being barely above freezing here this morning, the sun is up in the sky, the birds are singing away and all is good in the world. Well that’s providing you don’t turn on the telly, computer or radio, refuse to open a newspaper and never venture outside. We can still dream though and there’s nothing like dreaming about shiny pretty things, or in my case mostly woolly or woolly related things.
As I started to gather the bits and pieces for my trip to Wales this weekend, knitting projects first of course 😉 I started to think about the other yarn/art festivals, I’d like to visit. There are, as you’d probably expect, quite a few, many of them are much further afield than the UK – Maryland Wool and Sheep, Vogue Knitting, Knit Camp and Squam to name but a few. As for UK based festivals, I’d still like to go to Woolfest in Cumbria, Fibre East in Bedfordshire and Unravel in Surrey.
Dreaming away, i suddenly realised that I’ve completely forgotten to tell you all about the book from the Yarn in the City ladies, that Deirdre picked up for me when she went to Unravel earlier in the year.
The Barbara Prime Fuzzy Mitten Mystery KAL 2016 kicked off last week, on Friday the 15th of the April and I just couldn’t resist the temptation to join in. I’ve either been too late or too busy to take part in previous years, but being on the ball for a change (well kind off), I signed up and paid for my pattern.
