The rain and the wind were dreadful to say the least...we didn't think we were going to survive the night!!!
I even started to knit some gloves it was that cold!
But the Friday brought blue skies and sun! We had already decided to go to Woolfest that day instead of Saturday. Look what we found...two beautiful alpacas...this photo reminds me of the 'push me pull me' from Doctor Doolittle!!!!
Our first port of call was the fleece sale. This is me having a good nosey round. I ended up with a coloured Ryeland/Shetland cross and a Mainland Blue.
While I was spending to my hearts content J went off and photoed sheep.......
There were lots more but blogger won't let me put them on :(
We decided to go and have a rest and a drink about half way round...and who did we bump into but Artis-Anne and Kath!!! It was so strange as we had never seen them before and just took a stab at asking them were they them!!!
dye kit and 2 skeins of sock yarn from DT craft and design
Alpaca, Gotland, Mulberry silk and green tie dyed felting yarn from Bev at knitting for fun
Sock stuff from Freyallyn
Blue, green, purple and orange fibre, sock yarn and 'scrumptious' from Jeni at Fyberspates
Alpaca/merino dk from the Natural Dye Studio
Wensleydale fibre an also some angora from a rabbit called Zorin
They are some more bits and pieces but they can't be photoed as they're for pressies!
Yesterday we did our 'rescue' bit. A lamb had been parted from its mother onto a road. So we herded it to safety(and its mother) only to find on our way back the same lamb was on the road again!!!
We came back today and I'm now off work until next Wednesday...I need it to recover...a nice hot bath is definitely in order!!!
