Harry Potter

S'crap. Don't bother reading the tripe unless you're forced to by a kiddy (or you're a school librarian). Nothing worthwhile really happens, and the epilogue made me nauseous.

I have been knitting, and I have been receiving pressies. Photos to follow when sober :)

Words and pictures

Not too many words, but loads and loads of pictures. The usual gubbins applies, if you're on dial up then go and make a cup of tea whilst all the pictures load.

I arrived at the YH in Cockermouth

I had a few drinkies.

I went to bed, and the next day I went to Woolfest. I saw some pretty yarn.

Then I met some online friends, Artyfartykat and Acrylik.

Wormhead was there too.

And we also bumped into Aknita.

I also made friends with some stall holders. This is Natalie from the Yarn Yard, and I bought quite a few things here.

I had a very interesting conversation with Jeni from Fyberspates as you can see.

And the people from Pavi Yarns were delighted to have their photo taken with me.

Chrissy from Bright Dyes was there.

And I made very good friends with this lovely chappy from the Natural Dye Studio.

I was a bit tired after all this and so had a little snooze in a very comfy makeshift bed.

Refreshed after my nap, I found a fan! This is Helen, and she blogs here. (Hello to those of you who have come over from Helen's blog!)

After all that shopping and socialising we went to have look at the animals. My favourites were the alpacas.

I eventually had to say goodbye to all my new found friends, including blogless Helen and Kathy.

And I know you're all wondering what I bought, so here's the stash picture.

Finally, a very big thankyou to Alison for taking me there (and not leaving me when I was demanding a bacon butty), and Wye Sue for being such good fun :)
