This week is a particularly yarny week. Today I taught a beginners crochet workshop at The Coven (an amazing vegetarian/vegan/gluten free cafe in Wigan). It was amazing and very challenging. I really enjoyed sharing my love of crochet with some awesome ladies who, hopefully, have now gone away hooking away and creating some gorgeousnesses! They worked really hard and, at times, you could have heard a pin drop!
Friday and Saturday it is Woolfest! Yay! If you have never heard of Woolfest then where have you been? It is an annual fibre festival held in Cockermouth in Cumbria. There is plenty of yarny goodness, demonstrations, talks about sheep, entertainment, ewes milk ice cream and local produce. You can easily spend all day there. This year I'm going up on the Friday and from 10am-11am you can find me on the Artybird stall chatting to people about the fabulous courses they provide (if you are there, pop along and say hi!)
Saturday is knitting group, The Coven Stitchers, in The Coven, Wigan and hopefully the sun will shine and we will be able to sit outside and knit and natter.
A very yarny week I'm sure you'll agree. And so here are my Words of Wisdom!
