Yarn Heaven

dear diary…

Just taking a wee time out from organising myself for my weekend trip away…yes I am off to Woolfest. Yippee!!!!!


After trying to go for many years, this is it and I can’t wait. I can’t wait for the mouthwatering colours of all the yarntasticness that awaits, can’t wait to stroke and hug all those tempting hanks on display, can’t wait to see all the livestock (and smell it too!), but mostly I am looking forward to spending a great time away with my loopy knitting friends in our rather posh cottage, eating, drinking, being merry and of course – knitting! In case some of you, my dear readers, are going and wondering what colour yarnfabulousnesses you should buy to look ‘tres chic’ during forthcoming autumn/winter (yes, it is officially summer now, not that we would think so here in GB!), here is a little forecast that I received only the other day.
