how much I love yarn festivals. Well if you visit this blog regularly you know that already!! Try as I might I always buy far more yarn than I am ever going to knit before the next event comes along. So far this year there has been
L'Aiguille en Fete in Paris
|My Friend Alli of Champagne & Quivuit choosing some Icelandic Lopi yarn|
Unravel in Farnham
|I bought fibre too at Unravel|
and WonderWool in Wales

This weekend it is Unwind in Brighton and its VERY SPECIAL in a number of ways.
- It's its first year
- I have met the lovely woman, Dani Sunshine who practically single handedly has organised the whole thing
|Danni falling in love with some Titus yarn at Wonderwool (and wearing her Veera Valimaki sweater)|
- Teachers and yarn sellers have come from across the globe. There is Amy, Felicia and Jacqueline from Canada. L'OisiveThe from Paris and Veera Välimäki from Finland to mention but a few
- And finally instead of shop shop shopping I am going to take a couple of classes. OK I will buy some yarn and fibre but I am also going to Learn Something New.
It's in Brighton (did I already say that?)
It's on 12 - 13 July and all the details are on their website.
So all you have to do is come along! Do please, there are going to be some lovely people there, lots to see and do and it's going to be one big party, a yarn party! How perfect is that?
