Today it is raining in the North East….it rains, and it rains….and it rains some more! However, Aurelie and I will not allow a little rain to dampen our spirits, for this evening we make our way to Edinburgh by train. We stay overnight, thanks to the hospitality of the lovely Lindsay (Rowan design consultant in John Lewis, Edinburgh). Then, at 7.00am tomorrow morning we catch the Scottish Fibres bus to Cockermouth to spend the day at WOOLFEST!!!!!
It is difficult to contain our excitment…..not only will we be in the company of real live sheep and exquisite yarn producers, but the journey will provide UNINTERRUPTED knitting time. Texts have been flying back and forth this morning between us. How many projects are you taking? Is that a reasonable amount? Do I need clothes? If I leave out my underwear and wash-bag could I fit in more yarn? Do we have enough empty bags for our purchases? Will we need food? Ok, cake will do……what about chocolate?
We will tell you all about our visit very soon…….meanwhile, just to let you know…… Daffydowndilly – Wee Black faced Sheep Outfit No.4 has now been released. All monies raised from the sale of this pattern will be donated to the Aberdeen branch of SANDS.
And now, I must go and finish my packing………x
