It was wolly-licious! And really busy and I don’t think we even saw everything.
Highlights included –
- Getting to gaze at other’s projects on the bus (and giving up on my really complicated lace knitting that I had randomly brought with me after about two minutes)
- Admiring the yarn bombing that welcomed us as we arrived
- Seeing a sheep sheered (it was somewhat reluctant and was very ashamed to be naked in front of the other sheep)
- Buying wool made out of baby camel – then feeling guilty that it may be a little cold now
- Meeting alpaca (never actually worked out the difference between lama and alpaca)
- Learning to spin (no I take that back – being convince spinning is easy enough to buy spinning things)
- Admiring ‘Flock’ – I’m definitely making a cute little sheep for it. http://www.jointheflock.co.uk/
- Trying to actually do spinning on a drop spindle on the bus on the way home. It’s a bit lumpy due to doing it on a bus. I’m calling it ‘Roundabout yarn’
I then took my haul of knitting straight to the Sailing Clubs Summer Party. I think all of our sailing fraternity were thrilled as I regaled them with stories of yarn derring-do – and sheep-antics – well at least the barman told me the alcohol consumption increased on my arrival.
Obviously due to how much they were all enjoying it.
