Presenting the famous crochet bunting.
Hello my loves, hope you are well. As for me I am deliriously happy I managed to go to Yarndale. It is in Skipton, North Yorkshire. I live in London 268 miles away from the event. I always wanted to go but it always seemed so far away .The night before I casually mentioned to the Mr if he consider driving me there . I was actually expecting him to say no but the man from delmonte said yes.
I am sure you know at this point I nearly jumped up and down. I set about organising packed lunch and packed an overnight bag .We decided we would spent the night .
We set off at 7am leaving enough time for toilet stops and coffee breaks. I love the motorway to see the scenery change .You certainly know you are in the land of wool simply by the amount of sheep in almost every field . It so great leaving the hustle and bustle of London for the dreamy landscapes.
Whoopee, Im in . At this point I feel like Charlie Bucket in Charlie and the chocolate factory, my golden ticket is this wrist band. I walked through the gate and wow .I am totally blown away. The planning I had done in the car suddenly went out of the window .I became that child in a sweet aisle.
Can you feel it ??? the sheer excitement of being here. I set off looking for the yarndale merchandise stall .first thing a lady shopping needs is a yarndale bag. am I allowed to skip ???
Bag purchased and two pens. You can never have too many pens don't you agree?
Beautful Knit by numbers yarn .A gorgous rainbows of colour from the fabulous John Arbon Mill
The yarndale sheep
I visited the Inside Crochet team
And of course it would not be Yarndale without another picture of the delightful bunting. these are just a few of the pictures I took a lot . I haven't taken a picture of what I bought yet they are sitting happily in my bag .I like to save looking at it on one of those bleak days when I need cheering up . As soon as I do I promise I will share .
Have a lovely day .
