Adventures in Wonder(wool)land


Where to begin? I’m still coming down from my long anticipated high.

This year, Wonderwool Wales seemed a little quieter. Perhaps it was because I left my other half with the kids to have a wander around the surrounding areas while I got a few hours alone time to have a good mooch.

Just me, an empty shopping bag, my purse and camera. Bliss.

I had a few things on a list that I needed, a new bobbin for my wheel, a bottom whorl spindle (nope- still prefer the top whorl), a couple of skeins of yarn…

But with my stash overflowing already I took my logical brain with me and made sure I listened. Did I really need that stunning 4-ply camel and silk blend in the most amazing shade of burnt copper? No. I didn’t. So I put it back and took a card for future reference. I was ever-so well behaved, I really was.

I’m not going to lie – I still spent my budget. But I knew I would.

A few hours of wandering around, meeting amazingly talented and knowledgeable people and bumping into friends and I was spent.

I had bought a ticket for the after-show hosted by Ravelry however it started much later than I could wait around for with sleepy children and a two hour drive home, so I sadly missed it.

I won’t say any more. I’ll show you some of my favourite bits, though I forgot about the camera for most of the event, distracted by rainbows and clouds of heavenly softness.

About woodlandknitter

Two wonderful children, a crazy dog and an evil cat. We like to have adventures in the hills and spy for mermaids by the ocean's edge. I am obsessed with all things wooly; knitting, spinning, felting... it seems to be finally rubbing off on my babies now, as my son has been joining me at my local knitting group and is starting to knit quite happily. I am still working on my 3 year old and the dog.
