    every year I mean to go to EYF and then it’s been an gone before I know it. However, I love the J&S, Jamieson’s of Shetland websites and I have been eyeing up that self-same cone of 2ply for a while now. (I love the cones and used them for a Tanis Christmas in July body, but I just worked it on needles).

    Luckily I live where there are several shows throughout the year. This weekend was Stitches United, although it will be relocating next year….but yes, I love yarn shows/festivals/etc…to talk to the vendors and squoosh the yarn is the best.

    EYF is always the weekend of my husband’s birthday. So we never go. But it looks amazing. Maybe next year I can tempt him with the thought of sock yarn (he only wears hand knitted socks unless it’s a very formal meeting).
    Until then……Yarndale will be here soon enough! ;-)

    Sweet- but not fattening!

    I love the blues and greens. And the model’s matching hair with the Undertone.

    Not having anything even remotely like a yarn festival, I fairly recently discovered online the wonderful US Bumblebee Farm – – and bought a “mountainof minis”. My first experience of these little gems; and your post tells me they’re a hot topic. :)
