Stafford County Show

An incredibly busy week this week.  On Tuesday we set up our stand for the County Show and then dashed over to the Stafford Knot Spinners, Weavers and Dyers meeting.  Here is Chris modelling her Belgian Ombre Linen pinny purchased from me, but back-to-front it is so much easier to spin in.

Wednesday and Thursday were spent manning our didyoumakeityourself stall and joining in the knitterly fun with novice and experienced knitters and a few spinners.  We raised £17.50 for the Gingerbread Centre in donations from newbies.

The pink 'It's a Girl' balloon ended up in the roof!
We had many a good conversation with complete strangers, 
it was a real treat to be able to mooch about and just enjoy the creative atmosphere.

Plenty of young men learning to knit

and working hard.
