After a few very busy days in scorching heat, we spent yesterday resting our tired bones in much cooler air not doing very much at all. A little time spent at the stables, followed by a glass of ‘bubbly’ eating scones and then some gentle crochet. Just perfect!

Soon I will have to pack my case, say a sad farewell to Claudia and then hop on another plane. Another chapter of my adventure begins with a flight to Amsterdam where I will spend two days with my lovely and creative Instagram friend Marianne (@marrose-ccc.com).

I am so excited, it will be so much fun!

Another fabulously colourful woolly day was had by all! The photos speak for themselves:

1. Stall Impressions

2. Teaching new things

3. Freeform workshop creations

A huge big thank you goes to Claudia and Anja for organising another amazing Festival for knitters, crocheter’s, weaver’s, spinner’s, dyer’s and other yarn mad people. I hope I will be lucky enough to be invited back next year!

A big happy bonus for me, five of my closest knitting friends from the UK joined me this time. We had so much fun together, even trying to teach our wonderful waiter to knit. Our jaws dropped when he picked up yarn and needles, cast on without problems and started knitting flawlessly. Amazing!

Today will be very quiet I think as we are all a little exhausted. Maybe just a little knitting or crochet, catching up with all the news and endless cups of tea.

I think we have earned it!

A six six thirty wake up call and soon there after we left for Schwabsburg and the promise of another hot and sticky day.

We set up, and even before the official opening eager shoppers were arriving to be tempted by the sea of colour, delicious cakes and the stunningly pretty setting of the venue.

It was a long hot day filled with workshop teaching, book selling, catching up with many wonderful friends, and was finished off with a jolly get together over a delicious meal and a few well earned glasses of German beer and wine.

Day three awaits…I better get a move on!
