I'm just saying...

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

My haul from WonderWool

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)

  • 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?

Oh I wish I could! Sounds great :)

I couldn't help myself, I had to google Titus yarn and then I came across the Mini Skein set... that's a lot of temptation right there!

Oh I'd be there if I was still that end if the world!!! Have fun!

OK - Minding My Own Stitches, I just had to pop over to baa-ram-ewe and buy that sample pack!

Hi Truly Myrtle - do you have good yarn festivals on the other side of the world (apart from good weather, beautiful houses, fabulous scenery...)

Oh, wow! Now I have gone to the Baa Ram Ewe site and looked at the mini skeins. They are so so tempting. Mmmmmmm....

Wish I could join you but Alton on Saturday then other family commitments on Sunday, it's going to be a busy weekend. Have fun! Let us all know what you learn at the classes.
