The sun was beaming down as Julie and I set off very early on Friday morning to catch our flight to Frankfurt and onward travel to Nierstein am Rhein. We settled into our home for the weekend, a lovely hotel very close to the river, pretty quickly.
Waking up to birdsong early the next morning I decided to sit on my balcony and crochet whilst enjoying a cup of tea. Shortly before leaving the UK I had purchased a jelly bag from a company called sun jellies with the intention to decorate it with crochet flowers. I decided to make a start!
Soon however we were on our way to Schwabsburg for the 7th Woolfest. Organised by Claudia of Wollsinn in this very old picturesque little town it is always a total treat to visit and participate. I am lucky to be invited year after year teaching workshops and I wouldn’t want to miss it for anything.
Like always, this year did not disappoint! A sea of colour, fabulous handmade items, the latest designs in knit & crochet and many smiling happy faces. Meeting up with old friends and making new ones is always a highlight of the weekend, but this year it was extra special.
During the knitting retreat in Wales in May we had talked about a meet-up of whoever could make it. To my surprise almost everyone managed to come and thanks to Marion we had plenty of bubbly to clink our glasses with. Spending a couple of hours with these fabulous ladies was the cream on the cake and made the weekend extra special for me.
I leave you with this happy photo. It sums up a totally wonderful weekend!
