|admiring the stone walls in Yorkshire!|
I've just returned from a fun break in Yorkshire with my good pal T. Here I am in Heptonstall - a beaut village where Sylvia Plath is buried and there are rather beautiful stone walls, too. While on my travels I got some very lovely compliments with regards my Shetland Fair Isle poncho (double click on image for close up). It was a very hot weekend, however, I did manage to showcase the Shetland knit quite a bit; flinging it over restaurant chairs, twirling around the airport, shimmying down Hebden Bridge high street and such like....
This brings me, in a roundabout way, to the annual Shetland Wool Week - the yarn extravaganza to top all yarn extravaganzas is fast approaching (24th September - 2nd October) and visitors from across the world are flying in to attend all the fab events (top tip: book accommodation and flights asap). If you're a yarn addict - I guarantee you will be in woolly heaven.
