This weekend was Yarningham weekend, a small-ish (about 20 stalls) yarn fair just outside Birmingham city centre and about 1/2 hour from my house… so it would have been rude not to visit.
Every stall holder was so friendly and welcoming, and the small size meant it wasn’t too brain frying for me trying to choose favourites to purchase like it would have been from hundreds of stalls.
My purchases were quite restrained… just 2 skeins and 1 cake with a few stitch markers and a project bag to go with them.
The Deadpool bag, the stitch markers (lord of the rings, and small squares), and the progress keepers (weeping angel and converse) were from Owl about yarn
The yarn chemical symbol charms were from Yarnistry
The red and black cake is from PookGB and is a lovely squishy 75/25 merino/nylon blend.
The skeins were from Jo.Knit.Sew again squishy merino/nylon blend with the purple and green dk skein having added sparkle.
Following the shopping spree, me and my friend (who I took with me and corrupted into the world of hand dyed yarn) went into the city centre for food at one of my favourite quick eat places Pho.
All this meant way too much walking, and way too many spoons used by both of us (she’s a spoonie too), but worth the pain and nothing a couple of days bed rest wont fix.
Can’t wait to do it all again next year.
