We had a fabolous weekend in Wales. We left a day early so we could spend Friday sight seeing before we set up for the show. On Thursday when we got to Builth Wells we explored the town before heading to the B&B.
On Thursday we woke up to rain so we decided to explore the Brecon Beacons. I've forgotten the place names we visited now and I'd need to get the road map in from the car to remember them and I'm too lazy so please forgive me.
Our first stop was a small lake which had a water sports centre. We just had a quick wander around in the mud. There were more swans there than I've ever seen in one place before.
And beautiful views.
It was raining by then so we walked across the dam and got back in the car.
We stopped in Brecon and looked at Brecon cathedral which was beautiful.
Then in the afternoon we went and set up for the show before going to the cinema to see 'Carnage' which was a strange film but very funny.
Wonderwool Wales took place Saturday and Sunday. Here's our stall:
It was a fantastic show despite the awful weather. Sunday in particular was particularly wet and cold. Saturday was very busy. The stall was full of people from about 11am to 3pm. I met lots of old & new online friends. It's great being able to meet knitters I've only spoken to online. I'm useless remembering names so I'm not going to name any because I'll just forget but it was great to meet you all.
Sunday was incredibly cold, it felt like we were outside. I spent the day wishing I'd brought a pair of hand-knitted socks. I think the cold and wet weather kept a few people away as it was very quiet. The second day of two day shows are always quieter but this was unusually quiet. Well done to the knitters who came for the day though.
We enjoyed Wonderwool this year and are really hoping we can attend again next year. Thank you to all those who came by and said hello and who bought yarn and patterns.
If you missed out on going to the show, I've nearly finished uploading the shop with all the left over yarns. There is lots of lace and sock yarns left. Take a look. UK postage prices went up yesterday but I haven't had time to adjust our postage prices yet. I will be increasing the postage charges on Thursday or Friday though (most likely to be Friday), so order while the postage is cheap.
