Woolfest 2014

This Friday and Saturday saw Woolfest in Cumbria for an amazing tenth year, having been a few years back with Maisie I was taken back by how much this event has grown since.
I'm sure it will only grow as well as the wooly fleeces it provides. I've got some of my highlights below, where you there if so what were yours?
Woolfest 2014 - Brinkley Looms
Brinkley Looms a cornucopia of beautiful colours and unique easy to set up looms. Which is now on my crafty wishlist. I've always wanted to take up weaving and have had a small go on my friends loom but the size/storage was always a factor. This could easily be done at home and stored upright when not in use.

How can you not love a stand attended to by a large crown wearing chicken, Sewsister were doing felting demonstrations and had a wonderful selection of kits and fabric. We all ended up buying from this stall.

Easyknits was just a full rainbow of yarn to choose from and I'd love to own one of every colour, I must make room in my stash before I go to Woolfest next year.

 Not all sellers were wool and fleece, these beautiful baskets really catch my eye.

The Natural Dye Studio had a beautiful palette of vibrant colours but in softer tones, with a selection of patterns to go with your yarn. They also produce a yearly mystery blanket club where the yarn for the entire project is delivered to you and then you get a pattern a month to follow until completion. That may well be another wish list addition. Instead I left with a bag of mixed yarn and dreams of a shawl by Autumn.

Workshops and demonstrations were around every corner, here is Thread of Life tutoring on the art of crochet, a personal favourite.

There is something magical about watching people spin, it's something I'd love to master one day but this lady just made it look so simple.

Giant knitting produced on giant needles, these were amazing but I have images of my kids battling it out with these beauties, the end product looked great and it's a great way to use that stash up.

I spent waaay too long stood in Spin City watching this lady demonstrate spinning on way are the most beautiful looking spinners I've ever seen. There beauty alone was nearly enough to get me giving it a go, but I resolved not to till I get rid of my already here stash.

Mulberry Dyer stood out for me as it had such lovely chatty owners, thankfully it's the type of event that's used to people spending far too long touching the product. I especially liked their colour organisation, and only wish my own collection looked so neat.

Bunting, bunting everywhere.
Knitted, crocheted, sewed it really added an extra element to the festival feel of the event.

Okay I was very restrained buying only one quarter of fabric, a mixed pack of Natural Dye Studios yarn and some Tussah silk yarn, the pattern was free with the yarn. I can't wait to get making with them.

  2. Health wise, I feel like a child dancing in the rain ever since I got cured of hepatitis. I was diagnosed of HEPATITIS B and I was told it has no cure at the hospital, but I was given several antiviral medications to slow the virus’s ability to damage liver. But after sometime the medicine wasn't working and I became very sick with different symptoms like: vomiting, fatigue, dark urine, swollen stomach and so on. I went back to the hospital and I was told it has become chronic with liver problem, and out of frustration I went online to search for something new to try, and I came across Dr. IYABIYE's recommendation, I gave it a try hence it's a herbal medicine. And behold, I was cured after the treatment. I have to wait for months then went back to the hospital and still I was tested negative. You too will be cured.
