There were lots of lovely stalls there, and it's so nice to see other people's work.
I have booked to have another stall at this venue later in the year, so will advertise it nearer the time. Hopefully it will be as successful as today!

I was rather taken with the idea of spinning my own yarn, so bought a drop spindle and some merino tops to have a go!These were my purchases from the show.I found a book on spinning in my vast collection of books, and after a spot of reading, took the plunge, and had a go!
I was quite impressed with my first attempt, and with a bit of practice I am sure it will get easier.
I have included a photo of my first yarn! Any hints and tips for improvement gratefully received!
I really enjoyed making this yarn, so much so that I have now booked myself onto a course in July to learn to spin with a spinning wheel!
This lovely lady was also at the show! I had a fantastic time, and feel really inspired. I will definitely be going again next year!

There is a huge list of exhibitors, so I will have to remember my cheque book!
If anyone else visits this event I would love to know what you think.

I loved making these bags, and of course, a girl can never have too many bags!

Hopefully his will generate more interest in my work, and compliment the arts and crafts on display in Jill's gallery.
These are some of the bags I have sent to Jill to be displayed in the gallery.
It is very nice to have such interest in my work, and lovely to know it is on display in such a wonderful gallery.

One sock knitted and one to go! I have had great fun knitting socks recently. I found this amazing pattern for knitting socks from the toe up and it works really well! The instructions (in the link below) are really clear and they are a lot easier to knit then top down patterns, and there is no kitchener stitch needed to complete the socks.
I would love to know how you get on if you give the pattern a try.
