Leeds Wool Festival

This Saturday just gone was one of our favourite wool shows of the year, Leeds Wool Festival in Armley Mill. Beautifully organised, with a select gathering of vendors tucked in amongst all the exhibits.

We're all given a table each with the instruction not to block the gangways - as you can see, I was in the corner of the Tailor's Shop, so I took full advantage of all the space! And we had a nice corner behind too, for all the bags and boxes.

It's too long to leave the pupz at home on their own, and they can't come because the parking is not nearby, so Mark brought everything in with me early on and then went home for the morning. Of course, the morning was extremely busy. Lots and lots of people through the door first thing, including a Scottish contingent which included Jeni Reid, KnitBritish, and Old Maiden Aunt! I was appearing on other people's Instagram feeds before the day was over.

The day was very successful for me,and the Shetland 2ply yarn took a tremendous battering - the dark green is nearly cleared out!

The weather was excellent, the WI were providing excellent cakes and food, and there were alpacas on the lawn.

And we were home and unpacked and feet up by not long after 6pm. Lovely friendly little show - did I see you there?
