Wonderwool 2011

This is going to be a rather pic heavy post .Well i did it . The first show for twelve months firmly under my belt .
It was tiring but i enjoyed every minute of it . Meeting up with old friends we haven't seen in ages . Especially Artis-Anne and Tony who we haven't seen since last November when we went down to stay .
And making new friends .A lady came to speak to me and told me she reads this blog and keeps up with my trials and tribulations . It was nice meeting someone who takes the time to read my little ramblings . You know who you are , lady from Fulwood , unfortunately I forgot to ask your name .
Now for the pics 
First of all this is my Fan Club . These Cheeky Imps are the children of Bex aka Cheeky Imp from Ravelry.
They have been coming to see me with their Mum since they were tiny . As I hadn't seen them for twelve months i got a group hug from them .
Some more Cheeky Imps .
Sarah from Brownberry Yarns . Nic from Nicknots and Gemma from Krafty Koala .
Sarah and Gemma belong to the Preston S'N'B that Papa Bear and I go to .
Papa Bear knitting on the stall .
And now for my my goodies haul .Due to the fact I hadn't been let loose in all the fibery goodness for a year I'm afraid I went a bit OTT lol.
Black Merino and nylon sock fibre .
Bags of glitz for making luxury batts .
Some more fibre . This tim Merino /Cashmere and a beautiful wrist distaff from manda Crafts.
A bit of baby alpaca yarn . don't know what I'll do with it yet .
Gorgeous silk brick to spin and some dyed silk cocoons for making art yarn .
Yet more fibre . this was a gift from Artis-Anne in my fave colours .
And last but not least a beautiful Turkish spindle .A present from Papa Bear .
All in all a lovely weekend .Now I can relax and spin for a cople of months before I tackle Wool fest in June .

It was great to see you on 'top' form again and loving every minute of it :)
Great haul you have there ,I was much more restrained ;)and how funny that we should both choose the same colour fibre and wrist distaff from Amanda.
Great to hear you find the Turkish easier to use too,happy spindling ;)Next time you are down it will be defo art yarns at full force so get your jumbo bobbin at the ready !!!

I love reading your blog. You have friends, like me, who never have commented before, but read you regularly. I have recently gotten out the knitting needles again, but had to put them away again since it's now gardening season! Keep blogging!
