You may remember my trip to Yarndale last year. It was hectic and i came away with 2 skeins of yarn and a pack of mini skeins! Hardly a bumper haul considering what was on offer!
I nearly didn’t go this year but Id heard the organisers had taken on all the issues of last year and done their best to sort them out!
So off I went yesterday morning in the car armed with my highlighted yarndale plan and a short and concise shopping list. No problems with the journey, no problems with parking and the marshalls were doing a fabulous job af making sure it stayed that way.
The good thing about last year mayhem was that I spent very little. This year I did not get away so lightly.
Whoops! My first yarn show as a spinner, knitter and more recently dabbling with being a dyer meant there were thrice as many things to purchase!
It would take me all day to list out all the fabulous sellers (if you’d like to know where something is from please comment will gladly tell you) so here’s some piccys instead!
skeins of yarn for knitting – just four and for once carefully thought out (aside from the fluro yellow one-just needed that in my life!)
Plenty of fluff for spinning:
how fab is that giant ball of fluro fluff!
And some yarn for dyeing:
can you see the sparkles? Im also well chuffed with the giant skein of sportweight!
I also purchased a niddy noddy, a yarn bowl, some buttons and some acid dyes!
Weary from my mega shop I had a quick coo at the alpacas and then was homeward bound! I would probably have stayed longer and mooched about Skipton but I was feeling decidedly under the weather
I was very impressed at how the show was run this year, well done! Off to categorise my new stash and upload to ravelry!
Thanks for visiting!
