Almost right next door was Truly Hooked (Etsy shop). There was a wall of bright colours to choose from. I didn't know what to get so ran back at lunchtime on Sunday to grab a couple of skeins. I ended up choosing a skein of Yak Sock (merino/nylon/yak blend) (on the right) and a skein of Yak Singles (merino/silk/yak) which feels luscious. The Yak Singles will definitely be a shawl. I'm keen on bigger shawls these days, so I may mix it with something but haven't decided what yet.
I also got a pair of cutters from the Social Fabric shop and two little pouches (with a key ring) from Pickle-Lily. I'm using one in my handbag to hold some business cards. Not decided what to use ther other one for yet. The print in the background of my photos is from the Stitch Fest tote. Totnes is a lovely town with lots of independent shops. The show was right in the centre of the town and the weather was beautiful.
After a tasty lunch with my friend, I headed to teach my first workshop which was Professional Finishing Techniques. I had a very full class of lovely ladies who worked very hard and we managed to cover almost everything I do in a full day class in a 3 hour class.
On Sunday I taught two classes. In the morning we did Lace Knitting and in the afternoon it was Continental Knitting. Both classes were very busy. I met some ladies who've been to my classes before but I also met lots of new knitters which was fantastic.
I was impressed with how well organised the show was and I really enjoyed my workshops. Saj and Caroline from Social Fabric and all their helpers did a fab job. I'm already looking forward to next year. I'll be back at Social Fabric in early 2017 to teach more classes - Knitting in the round on 27 January and Top Down Socks on 7 February.
