dear diary,

Yesterday myself and two good friends drove to Skipton to visit the long and eagerly awaited Yarndale event. The sun was shining upon the stunning Yorkshire countryside when we arrived…

…and even though we were a little frazzled at the edges after sitting in a long line of traffic for ages, we soon forgot about it as the colourful greetings we received cheered us up in no time at all…

…the trees and bushes had been dresses up in crocheted yarn finery and it looked stunning.Nothing had prepared us for what was awaiting us when we stepped inside however!

You might remember reading about the request by the organisers for crocheted granny triangles to be assembled into bunting? Many of us send in our colourful creations and we were blown away by the sea of colour that greeted us inside…

I managed to meet up with some of my IG friends as well as a quick hello with Valerie’s Hexagon group, and was able to have a good catch up with many friends I hadn’t seen for a while. Of course some purchases were made too (more about that another time) and the three of us left feeling elated and happy with a skip in our step.
