Yarndale Round Up

Yarndale was amazing as always. We drove up to Yorkshire on Thursday and enjoyed a bit of sightseeing in Ilkley and Skipton before we went to set up for the show on Friday.

The Oxfam book shop in Skipton was ready for the invasion of knitters.

Because we were so busy I didn't have much time to look around the show. I managed to get away for a few minutes on the second day and quickly visited a couple of stalls I'd been keen to see.

I've been following Woolly Originals for a while and I finally gave in to temptation and got one of her project pouches. Perfect for my sock in progress. And I actually managed to finish one sock on our trip. I did most of the knitting in the car and a little bit in the quiet periods on Sunday. I only had half a round left to cast off when we got home. 

I was also keen to see An Caitin Beag. I got a silver stitch marker bangle from her last Christmas and wanted to see what else was on offer. I managed to resist the jewellery and got a tote bag and one of the knitters notebooks. I got three notebooks a little while ago but Emily took one of them so I got a replacement. These notebooks are fabulous. 

Normally we walk around the whole show before it opens but this time we weren't able to do that for various reasons and I did miss seeing what else was on offer. 

The fabulous Yarndale bunting

My favourite part of the show was meeting regular and new customers and especially everyone who came to say hello from my Love of Lace Knitting Facebook group and other knitting groups. It was so lovely to meet you all. Thank you very much to everyone who supported us over the weekend and to the Yarndale team for excellent organisation and for putting on a brilliant show again.

Here are some photos before we set up and of our stall:
