UK Ravelry Day 2009

UK Ravelry Day 2009

We back from the Ravelry day, and we had alot of fun. As you can see, it was really wet, but regardless, it was a great chance to catch up with friends, and do some shopping.

Having FB with me, I didn’t sign up for any of the classes, and though I had a ticket for Meg Swansen’s talk, I only stayed for the first 15-20 minutes because FB was starting to wriggle.  I realised that I would be better off getting my shopping done while the stalls were quiet and the rain had settled down a bit.

UK Ravelry Day 2009 Haul

Can you see a theme? It wasn’t really intentional. 😉

I bought Wee Woolly Toppers by Woolly Wormhead, Airedale Aran in Plum and Petrol by Texere Yarns, Alpaca/Silk Fibre in Stormclouds by KraftyKoala, UK Merino Fibre by Artists Palette Yarns, and Merino/Silk Laceweight in Bramble by Old Maiden Aunt (which – as you can see is already balled up and on the needles! I’m knitting the Japanese Feather and Fan shawl by Izzysknits.)

I’m loving my sewing at the moment*, but I’m also itching to do some more spinning. I’ve promised myself that July is spinning month (in the main), since Tour de Fleece will be running, and regardless, there will be daily Tour footage to watch on ITV4 after FB has gone to bed, which is prime spinning time.

That said, I’m sure this fibre will be spun before then. 😉 I’m thinking fine, and with 200g between the two, enough to make the boy something in the autumn when the weather turns cooler.

*I’m making the Expandable Pack It In Tote by U-Handbag, which is quite a big project, but I’m hoping will be finished and ready to show off soon. 🙂
