Wool Fest 2009
I went to the Woolfest in Cockermouth which is in Cumbria by the Lake District.. I had a fantastic time wandering around with my freinds looking at the various sheep including Alpaca, fleeces, wool stalls, spinning wheels..there were all kinds of wool stalls from the Shetland Isles, Scottish Highlands, Norway and Denmark etc. I bought lots of new stuff including some gorgeous sari wool which I have knitted a thin scarf with. I tried on a great felt hat which I wish I had bought now..oh well just have to try and make one! We stopped off at Derwent water in the Lakes on the way home..such a beautiful place.
