Woolfest 2016

Our annual trip to Woolfest was brilliant as always, we set off at half six in the morning and got home at midnight stopping off to eat at The Bitter End, what a treat. 

 I purchased many interesting things big and small but my fastest ever Woolfest project is the Merchant and Mills  Trapeze Dress from CoolCrafting. 
 I'd been considering this for a while but took the plunge after trying on their sample, always useful.   I made it up while the Saturday night football was on, just in a fine needlecord with a tiny bit of stretch as a test run for the Manx Loaghton tweed I picked up at the show.

Miss Belle always comes with us and I was under pressure to finish off her new cardigan which I'm happy to say she loves.  Mary Rebecca by Ellen Mason , a beautifully written pattern
 - I have also knit one for myself in red - both in Shilasdair from the very well stocked 
 Ewe and Ply in Shrewsbury Market Hall.
