Wool Week

14 Oct

This week 14th-20th October 2013 is Wool Week

The aim of Wool Week is to give prominence to wool as a “natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre” (Campaign for Wool, 2013).

My Wool week started Saturday with my fellow #PostCircle local #Geese when we toddled off to The Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace in London.

Firstly wow what an amazing building Alexandra Palace is, it’s beautiful!

Saturday Morning we all meet under the amazing architecture of The Palm Court for the first time.

I think I can speak for us all in saying we had a nice day chatting, shopping and having a lovely lunch.

So what did I buy you ask… Well here we are.

This Soft soft soft italian cashmere yarn makes these lovely baby hats from one ball.

Toft Yarn: again this part alpaca yarn is so soft and is heading for a herring bone scarf with these super fluffy pompoms at either end.

The Cats LOVE these pompoms!

I’ve hidden them as our Parrot Cat has taken to grooming them.

More Toft (and I could have brought lots lots more but tried not to get carried away with strict instructions to my fellow #Geese to STOP me spending!)

This little bag is for crocheting The Toft Edward’s Menagerie.

This is a sneak peek from the Toft website.

The book is gorgeous! And highly recommend!

What’s next ? Arr Yes Debbie Bliss from Black Sheep Wools Bargain Bundles.

Again with all the Rowan and Debbie Bliss and other Beautiful Yarns at great prices I could have spent a fortune! With the Black Sheep Wool stand.

Finally; If you read my blog you know for a while I’ve been wanting to try extreme crochet/knitting. So I’ve brought some needles 28mm, not the biggest but I think the biggest I can deal with.

That’s my Wool Week.
I still need to finish the blanket for the new baby due in the family this November, so the above projects will have to wait for a bit.
