Ranting of course I didn't ignore you, I was only there on the Sunday! Fancy going twice! Were you an exhibitor?

I had a go with the "giant knitting" - using up to 20 strands of wool together!

Did you see "moth balls?" That was one of my favourites, last time it was the Quirkles.

I had a great time & bought myself some fancy hand dyed wool from Colinette.

i cant knit so am envious of the wee crafty clackers and ability to produce nice wool garments

Podrick, no I wasn't exhibiting (wish I were that clever), I went for one day last year and was so overwhelmed I decided on two this year.

Worked out much better, I had a good look round on the Friday and actually bought what I wanted on the Saturday. I got some lovely silk skeins from the knitwitches and a skein of some gorgeous halloween wool from Cherry tree hill.

Of the exhibits, I rather loved the crochet one where the woman covered a car in a crochet cobweb but, they were all pretty good.
