Last weekend I was lucky enough to go to a very exciting event with some of my friends from Stash, the Bluefaced Open Weekend, (or ‘Andyfest’ as it has become known on Ravelry!).
Now I know some of you will be thinking ‘More yarn and knitting things? What a busman’s holiday!’ and while I suppose you may have a point (and I did see and chat to lots of lovely Stash customers - it was lovely to see you all!) I did thoroughly enjoy myself, and of course, I may have
sucumbed to temptation/ been weak willed bought a small cough amount of yarn, purely for ahem, research purposes, you understand.
One of the many things that were really nice about Andyfest was the relaxed atmosphere. There were stands from Easyknits, Posh Yarn, The Natural Dye Studio, Fyberspates, The Knitting Goddess, Nicsknots, Babylonglegs, Felt Studio, Ann Kingstone and Laughing Hens but nothing was too crowded and there was plently of space to sit and chat with a cup of tea and a piece of cake in between stroking yarns!
I didn’t get many photos as I was too busy having a great time and buying lovely yarn, but in case you missed out on all the fun, here’s why you really must come if it happens again (I’ve got my fingers crossed that it does!)
And at the end of all this I came home with a lovely pile of gorgeous yarns!
Fyberspates Faery wings, Posh Yarn Natasha and Sylvia 4ply ‘orphans’, Easyknits Twinkle DK and 4ply, Cloud and Biffle-Boo, a pack of Mini skeins in Flower Power from The Knitting Goddess, and a skein of Precious 4ply from the Natural Dye Studio…….
….and a bag from Nicsknots to put it all in (well, maybe not all at once!).
Did any of you go to ‘Andyfest’? What did you get?
