|Merino ready for felting|
An excursion to Centerparcs in Holland followed this(for 5 days!), a treat for us all before my daughter Jess went off to start her uni course at Kingston.
On our return, I had a stall at the Vintage & Handmade Fair in the Shire Hall run by the lovely Hayley from Truly Madly Vintage in Moulsham Street. It took place on a beautiful day and we had lots of people through the door and lots of sales!
This was followed by a beginners knitting workshop at Hylands and another felting workshop, some of the lovely ladies from the felting brooch course earlier in the month came back to visit me and make scarves, as you can see the results were fabulous!

The final and fantastic event in this blog entry is my visit today to the knitting and stitching show at Alexandra Palace today! I went along with my friends Andrea and Jo and my daughter Jess. On arrival we found the Black Sheep wool stand, a treasure trove full of wool for the keen knitter, bargains galore were found - we all bought wool and lots of Rowan books some selling for as little as £1, who could resist? I bought some beautiful wool, a gorgeous printed Woman's Weekly tea towel, a Rowan book and some felting materials. I can highly recommend a visit! We were tired but elated by the end.
