WOOLLIE

Just thought I'd show you what I bought at Woolfest - I behaved reasonably well - though I did only have £2.50 left in my purse on exit!!

With so much yarn on view it is often difficult to choose.....
1. Some dyed tops to decorate a felted bowl that my mum wants me to make.
2. Small balls of yarn wound like lemons - I want to know how to make my wool look like that!! This time so my mum can knit a farm full of fields.
3. A peach brooch.
4. Lots and lots of natural yarn -700g for £4......knitting a baby blanket full of squares!!

Thanks for the offer Di. I was thinking of Austin Powers Purple Felt coloured shagpile carpets. I'll get you the measurements as soon as the budget is finalised!!!!!!

Ooooh rolling wool like lemons that's very clever - I've been rolling my Lopi but it's ended up as very random ballish shapes! That natural yarn for £4 looks a bargain - look forward to seeing progress at knitting group!

Thought I'd pay you a visit too! What lovely colours of yarn - lucky you, visiting Woolfest - I'd love to have gone. And, yes, I had a checked dress too - but mine was blue!

The lemon-shaped wools are so cute! I must get back into crocheting again. Your photos are giving me the itch.
