A little Birdy told me.......Thorndolly is going to Kendal Wool Gathering on 27th/28th Oct! #kendalwoolgathering #allthehanddyedyarn #kendal #handdyedinlancashire #indiedyer

A productive #snowday. Would anyone like to guess the fibre of these mittens? Some of you will be shocked! (I bought it from #kendalwoolgathering, as @northern_yarn may remember). So happy with the fit of these, but if only I'd had them made in time for today's snow

Nothing like balling wool to cast on a new project to cheer up a cold grey day. This was my purchase at Kendal Wool Gathering this year - BFL 4 ply in Impressionist by @riverknitsuk .

Day 2 of #wearwoolfornovember #wearwooleveryday in #wovember2017 it’s woolness = wellness so of course the exemplar of health is this life enhancing colour by the joyfully energetic @mothy.and.the.squid purchased at the very bizarre #kendalwoolgathering last weekend. It’s going to be extra zing for my lechoufleur granny squares blanket and the weft for the woven wrap I’ve been promising myself. Plenty for both. Doesn’t it make your heart sing? 💕

And for extra wellness, here’s a glimpse of my wonderfully healed brand new tattoo! 👌

I'm not having a great day today, so let's look back to happier memories and show off some of the pictures I took at #kendalwoolgathering from the end of October, although there were one of 2 #socktober posts from when we were there. Absolutely loved the show, and so much british wool on offer 😍 it was difficult to be restrained! And there were actual sheep: Ouessant (which are the smallest breed, usually no taller than 50cm at the withers), Rough Fell, Herdwick, BFL and British Texel and some alpacas inside too. I quite like the muted colour palette I ended up coming home with #britishwool #britishyarn #homegrown #knitbritish #knitlocal #herdwick #ouessant #roughfell #cotswolds #shetlandsheep #borderleicester #teeswater #nonylonsocks #countryside #cumbria #wanderingknitter #knittingaddict #knittersofinstagram #knitting #woolspirarion #yarnspiration #wool #naturalfibres #postholidayblues

Here we are at Kendal and having a great time. #kendalwoolgathering2017 #kendalwoolgathering

Some of the Sheep from yesterday! Not the best photos but I can't get down to their level. 😁 they were all happy eating constantly. #kendalwoolgathering #sheep #livestock #woolinthewild #woollyelephant

I always say my favourite part of shows is meeting people, but I think meeting the sheep just beats that (sorry people, you were all lovely). This lot are obviously well used to having a camera waved at them, they all posed for me, including the alpacas 😄

Stunning exhibits at #kendalwoolgathering - I’ve tagged vendors where I can. I know Robert who makes the Staffordshire buttons isn’t on Instagram (yet - we’re working on him!) but you must watch out for him at shows. He’s a truly lovely man and makes some beautiful ceramic buttons. I may have come away with some Shetland yarn from @hawkshaw_sheep... Sue has some gorgeous blends of naturally coloured wools. I can highly recommend!
