2013 2013 2013 <center><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-QTJXwYAorR4/UdG0n5POIVI/AAAAAAAAFw8/y9eTJ7ZekFM/s640/Woolfest+Sheep+Sketch+%232.jpg" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-QTJXwYAorR4/UdG0n5POIVI/AAAAAAAAFw8/y9eTJ7ZekFM/s640/Woolfest+Sheep+Sketch+%232.jpg" /></a></center></br>Woolfest. It rained again. I didn't buy much. I wanted yarn and I'm convinced there were fewer yarnies there than in previous years. Only <a target = "_blank" href="http://baaramewe.co.uk/">Baa Ram Ewe</a>, where I finally got to meet the lovely Verity in person, <a target = "_blank" href="http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/brands/eden-cottage-yarns">Eden Cottage Yarns</a>, one of my perennial favourites, and Natalie Fergie's <a target = "_blank" href="http://www.theyarnyard.co.uk/">The Yarn Yard</a>* had stock that gave me knitter's goosebumps. And only on Natalie's stand did I find a skein that was bouncing up and down and shouting 'Buy me' ... 'Comiston', in a luscious petrol blue. It's a heavy laceweight, fibre content 55% wool/45% silk, and it is very lovely indeed. <i>And</i> it was all the yarn I bought! </br></br>Would it be churlish to complain about an over abundance of fleece and spinning equipment - is spinning the new knitting? - and needle felted animals at an event intended to celebrate all things woolly? Thought so. Will <a target = "_blank" href="http://yarndale.co.uk/">Yarndale</a> be where it's at for northern knitters in 2013? It may well be! </br></br>Add to the above dissatisfaction a spectacular Woolfest photo fail - I know, I know, call myself a knitting blogger! - and the whole thing becomes something of a non event. You'll just have to make do with a sheepy sketch of sorts instead, and news of the giveaway winners! </br></br>Rafflecopter has it's own inbuilt random number generator, which came in handy given that there were an amazing 292 entries ... no way was I writing that many names on little slips of paper! In fact I'm thinking I'll use the Rafflecopter widget again just so long as <i>you</i> liked it? Do please let me know. </br></br>"But who won?", I hear you cry ... </br><blockquote><center><b>Cassy</b></br>wins the Cozy Memories bucket**,</br></br>and</br></br><b>Sarah of Crafts from the Cwtch</b></br>wins the India Flint Eco Dyeing book**.</center></blockquote></br> I'll be emailing you both shortly. And meanwhile thank you to everyone for entering, and for subscribing and following and such, and also for your wonderful response to <a target = "_blank" href="http://knitsofacto.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/colourcollaborative">The Colour Collaborative posts</a>, it was much appreciated by us all. </br></br>* You can read <a target = "_blank" href="http://www.nataliefergie.com/blog">Natalie's Woolfest</a> report here, and if you check back later in the week she'll be listing the remainder of her Woolfest stock on the website. </br></br>** For those who need to know these things these were entries 147 and 98 respectively. </br></br><center>♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥</center></br><center>Follow the links below to subscribe to free updates via ...</br><a target="_blank" href="http://www.feedly.com/home#subscription/feed/http://feeds.feedburner.com/knitsofacto"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" title="Add to Feedly" /> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.feedly.com/home#subscription/feed/http://feeds.feedburner.com/knitsofacto"><span style="font-size:84%;">Feedly</span></a> </a><a target="_blank" href="http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/3234656"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" title="Follow with Bloglovin" /></a> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/3234656"><span style="font-size:84%;">Bloglovin</a></span> <a target="_blank" href="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=knitsofacto&amp;loc=en_US"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" title="New posts via email" /></a> <a target="_blank" href="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=knitsofacto&amp;loc=en_US"><span style="font-size:78%;">Email</span></a></br></br>You can also now join us on <a target = "_blank" href="http://www.ravelry.com/groups/knitsofacto">Ravelry</a>!</center><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><center><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-QTJXwYAorR4/UdG0n5POIVI/AAAAAAAAFw8/y9eTJ7ZekFM/s640/Woolfest+Sheep+Sketch+%232.jpg" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-QTJXwYAorR4/UdG0n5POIVI/AAAAAAAAFw8/y9eTJ7ZekFM/s640/Woolfest+Sheep+Sketch+%232.jpg" /></a></center></br>Woolfest.
