Days Out and Shiny New Things

If you are following my old blogger blog now is the time to change over to this one, I have discovered Bloglovin which seems to be a handy way to keep track of blogs I'm interested in and the link above is to follow this blog with that service. 

It's been a busy few weeks with Unwind Brighton starting things off with a bang. It was an amazing weekend full of fibre, friends and FUN. When I arrived on Friday it was raining but that soon cleared up and we had a glorious sunny weekend at the seaside. I have some amazing food, the highlight of this was the pudding below (Caitlin Meringue from Terra Terra). Because I was teaching on Sunday, I brought my husband along to man the stand while I was away, he did a fine job (with a bit of help from some lovely friends) and he already talking about getting a t-shirt printed for next time!

A couple of weeks after that was Fibre East, I love this show for it's relaxed and friendly vibe, the sheep shearing display is always a favourite and the weather for the last few years has been nothing short of tropical! On my way there on Friday I stopped at Toft to congratulate Kerry on the publication of Edwards Menagerie (yet again I find myself wishing I could crochet!). At the end of the first day of the show I found this guava flavoured cider in a pub that is nothing short of delicious, so refreshing on a hot day! I came home from Fibre East with an exciting bag of sock yarn for Sock Book 2 which is well underway and this lovely knit stitch print tea towel from the beautiful Tilly Flop.

Phew! It's been so nice to see so many people and it's not quite over yet - I'll be at The Pop Up Wool Show on the 16th August, if you're coming, see you there!
