After lunch we drove up to Skipton and accidentally chose the scenic route and it took us ages. Yarndale is held in an auction mart, basically a cattle market, so transforming it into a yarn boutique is a challenge. This is after we'd put up the wall coverings and had all our stuff dumped.
But transform it we did and I was happy with the result.
Our other feature shawl was Delphine which was also much admired.
We had a fabulous show! It seemed slightly quieter than last year but I think that was because the show was larger and better organised this year. Last year the organisers were taken by surprise by how many knitters turned up. They listened to stall holders and visitors and implemented some changes for this year.
Sales-wise, we did about the same as last year so it was a successful show for us. Join top with Woolfest!
Lucy of Attic 24 had appealed to her blog readers for crocheted mandalas and they made a colourful display at one end of the auction mart.
There were a lot of them:
If you came to our stall at Yarndale then thank you very much for your support. If you missed out then there's lots of yarn in the shop now.
