Episode 10: Wonderwool Wales

Hello from a sunny yet cold Cheshire Plain. In this episode I talk about the wanderer returning, wander with a wonderful friend and wonder at Wonderwool Wales.

What’s on my needles, hooks and wheel: Not much knitting or crochet in the last fortnight. Work’s been busy and any spare fibre moment has been spent at my wheel. I’ve spun about 60g of merino tops bought at Wonderwool Wales last year into an as yet unspecified 2-ply yarn. Lumpy in places, but well balanced (like me, perhaps?)

Over the Bank Holiday weekend I did finish the last of the NYOBE Round 5 squares.

Review: Wonderwool Wales. A brilliant time, with a fairly restrained amount of shopping I feel…

Believe me, I could have bought an awful lot more! I mention pretty much everything in the podcast and link to it below, but when I looked at the photo I realised I didn’t mention the glorious dyed oatmeal BFL from The Thylacine. Bad podcaster!

Want to go? Next year’s dates are Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th April 2011.

Links: Knitwitches; Sheepfold; DT Crafts & Design; Sparkleduck; The Threshing Barn; Black Mountain Alpacas

Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, available from Magnatune.

There’s now a Ravelry group for the podcast, which can be found here.
