OK, I’m very late with this, but it’s still worth updating!
Wonderwool Wales is a fibre festival which takes place at the Royal Welsh Showground in Llanelwedd at the end of April. It is brilliant and temptation abounds. It is also not far from us, so I make my annual pilgrimage. (Last year the Little Boy was only 8 days old, and people were surprised that I was out fibre-ing. Only people who didn’t really know me, of course!He slept through the whole thing in his sling, waking up for the occasional feed. This year I left the children at home!).
Anyway, here are some pictures from this year’s event.
Displays of roving always look so wonderful and make me want to learn to spin even more than I do already. I fear spinning is going to have to wait until that mythical time when the children are at school and I have more time…
This stall sold, among other things, the most wonderful embroidery threads:
Oh, these were pretty – old bobbins sold with roving. I have no use for roving as yet so I didn’t buy any, but I do like old bobbins!
And finally, these wraps left over the backs of some chairs caught my eye. Lovely colours!
I bought some stitch markers and three skeins of hand dyed yarn – two sock and one lace weight. This counts as comparatively restrained!
