    Can’t get enough of EYF :) Beautiful photos! I am so lucky I got to volunteer at this great yarn event and met lovely fibre folk.

    EYF looked amazing! I was unable to make it but was enviously following all the instagram pics people were posting. You picked up some gorgeous yarns there.

    What is the name of the shawl pictured in the British and Rare Breeds section? I love it.

    I’ve loved seeing all the pics of EFY on Instagram! I attended a Stitches West once while pretty pregnant — I told my friend that I was willing to feign labor pains to distract everyone while she grabbed the most coveted yarns and hurried to the register. ;)

    Oh how I wish I could have been there. We’re hatching plans to go next year. It sounds as though it was awhirl with that positive energy which reinvigorates my own joy of knitting and creating. Thanks for showcasing some of the beauties of the festival.

    Aha! I was hoping you would have a stand there and I would have a chance to pick up some of your lovely patterns in the flesh! But good to see that you had a good time as a punter… Thanks for the pointers on yarns and yarny businesses that you saw there. I whizzed in for only an hour And missed soooooo much (although I did snag some skein queen yarn)
