Fibre East

Last weekend we went on a little trip to the countryside. Or at least, that's what I told my husband we were doing. When we got to our destination however, we found (much to our surprise) that a knitting show was in full swing.

'Did you know about this?' my husband asked sceptically. I thought it best not to answer on the grounds that I might incriminate myself. The event was Fibre East and it turned out to be a lovely, lovely show.

We were all captivated by the sheep shearer:

We said 'hello' to the sheep many, many, times. This was much to the bemusement of onlookers (and possibly also, the sheep).

And of course there was yarn, glorious yarn, from the likes of the delightful Boo's Attic:

Roll on Fibre East 2012. My husband might just guess where we're going this time, but there's talk of a 'men's room' to entertain all those long-suffering partners. Here's hoping!
