Well I’m back from Wonderwool (and since I’ve been a lazy Blogger also back from the Bank Holiday in Devon) having brought back many lovely things.
It was a great trip down with some of my knitting buddies and a great time visiting a friend who moved to Wales last year. At the show I ran into Alice, Diane, and Alishairish who had all made the trip down from London. I missed Yvonne on the Knitting and Crochet Guild stall but got to meet WyeSue (Woolly had fun playing with her knickers). From various Ravelry groups I also ran into Fabclaire, Sallyinwales (Thanks for the Ravelry tag) and Mochyn who all hung out with Woolly as did Anthony Worrall Thompson who was part of the Food Show. I also worked out what the Bowmont Sheep look like since they were recommended to me by my UK Swap downstream partner.

Unfortunately I missed the Sasha Kagen workshop I was booked on since we ended up going down on the Saturday morning but maybe another time.
Yes, strangely enough, I did go shopping so just a quick rundown of what I remember coming home with:
For Dying – some laceweight and sock yarn from Bluefaced.com
For various knitting projects – Cascase 220 (not sure which stand) and Malabrigo Laceweight (from Maylin) as well as 5 Shades of Sheep (from Sallyinwales)
Just because – A new bag, sheep buttons, as well as Root Beer and Sasparilla
