This weekend (24th-25th September 2016) saw the return of the annual wool-based festival in Skipton, Yorkshire – Yarndale! I love going to this huge knitting, crafting (and some sewing) fair every autumn with my favourite crafting friend and this year we certainly weren’t disappointed. Here are a collection of my favourite pictures from the day – enjoy!
Knitted animals! A rag rug sheep, an enormous knitted bluetit (I nearly bought the kit for my Grandma) and a faux-taxidermy tiger rug from Sincerely Louise.
Real animals! Goats, alpacas, sheep and a man with a massive Angora rabbit on his knee.
That’s it! Did you go to Yarndale this year? Did you enjoy it? We went first thing in the morning before the crowds got too mad and had a great time. I came away with the Mini Knitted Christmas book (signed by the author/designer, Sue Stratford) plus a box full of coloured yarn to make all the Christmas decorations with. My friend bought a crochet blanket kit full of Stylecraft DK. Until next year!
