Yarndale

Yarndale was a fabulous day, but I didn’t take many pictures, except of the stash when I got home. It felt as if the internet had come to life. Pretty much all the yarn sellers that I buy from were there and it was lovely to meet them. I took a pair of socks to meet their designer, and the dyer of their yarn. In the afternoon I had signed up for a sock knitting class with Amy Singer of Knitty. It was a really interesting class and we learned Japanese short-rows. I’m not sure whether it is a sock technique I will use again: it is designed to be free from maths and I’d rather embrace the maths, but it was good to spend the afternoon in the company of other sock knitters. I discovered that I’m now quite a fast knitter and kept having to wait for other people to catch up. Amy Singer was delightful, charming and a really good teacher.
