I will blog when I get home about my woolfest purchases, but I had to do a little post, post-woolfest!

What a wonderful couple of days (amid un-wonderful things happening at home). We travelled from Edinburgh to Carlisle on Thursday & caught the bus to Cockermouth. The rain was pretty torrential at times but did little to dampen our spirits.
After dining on wonderful local fayre at the Trout Hotel, we retired for an early night in woolly anticipation.


The place was amazing! A wool enthusiasts dream – a wonderfully woolly maze of natural & rainbow colours. The woolfest chaps totally surpassed themselves – not only with variety of stall holders but also on food & entertainment.
The biggest credit goes to the LovelyFella who arranged it all & didn’t look too bored!





More Woolfest wonderfulness later, about to leave Carlisle for Edinburgh! I have just been to the post office to Special Delivery my swag home as it took up too much room in the case!
Big hello to all going to Woolfest today! I hope the rain stays off!



  1. Woolfest was really terrific this year. I see you got some Titus and went to the same button place that I did. I broke my budget by quite a bit, but just couldn’t help myself – need to go on a major yarn diet now. But I was pleased that I bought only British wool/alpaca. Now I just have to find projects for all my skeins. Looking forward to Yarndale next.

      Good on you buying British! I found it really easy there. I will blog on it more later.
      Yes, I knew after Edinburgh Yarn Fest that I needed to save up for Woolfest!

      I think next year I will do my stash shopping for the entire year!
