On Saturday we had a day at Yarndale.
Me, my Sister, Mum and Niece went (no Little L she was with her Daddy thank goodness as it would have been a nightmare with a pram) to Skipton. It was a lovely sunny day and we were there early. There was lots to see, some very talented people displaying there makes. I saw a lovely stall Knitwits (don't think they have a website) but they sell beautiful cardigans, jumpers and hats for babies to toddlers. Little L has a cardigan from them with butterflies on which we bought at the Westmorland Show. If I had known what we were expecting I would have bought a cardigan for baby. They do the neatest fairisle colourwork I have ever seen and they wash well. If we have a baby girl she will certainly be wearing Little L's butterfly cardigan when it fits. Another lady (Gwennol designer hand knits) was selling beautiful hand made baby blankets, I was tempted but again would need to be unisex!
We had a lovely morning at the show and then down into Skipton for the afternoon on the free bus. I didn't buy anything at the show, my pockets aren't that deep, and I like my yarn ready to go, I don't wind hanks into balls, I don't spin wool and I like to be able to buy enough for a project without breaking the bank. But there was certainly some nice things to see and if it runs next year I will make the trip.
