This morning Sarah, Hannah and took a lovely drive down the coast in the sunshine to a little wool festival in the beautiful fishing village of St. Abbs.
The event was hosted by Woolfish, who also have a lovely shop in the village.
There was plenty of gorgeous yarn to squish, sniff(!) and of course, purchase. The new book had it’s first adventure in the wild at Natalie’s stall and she also had the yarn for the mitten pattern that is coming soon.
It was also lovely to chat to several people that I haven’t seen for a while. Hannah even found the raw fleece she was after for a sculpture project hanging from the roof of the shop – I think they were as delighted to be rid of it as she was to acquire it, raw fleece does smell a bit!
It was such a lovely, sunny, friendly and very woolly way to spend the day.
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
