#Unravel2015: Part 1 - The Pictures

I have so much to tell you about my amazing weekend at Unravel, it still feels a little overwhelming and I'm not sure where to start. So for today's Show & Tell, I am simply going to share some of my pictures, and tell you about the things I couldn't resist bringing home. Come back tomorrow for a round up of my Unravel Highlights.

A last hoorah at The Natural Dye Studio (closing in April)
Having left home with a very small list of 'needs' (mainly buttons and shawl pins for other people) I came away with a long list of things I'd like, but just a few things I couldn't resist.
#unravel2015 purchases
1. The pink knitting bag from Quincepie (others available via Etsy and there is more of this fabric by request) was the ONLY ONE like this, prompting me to immediately break my own rule about not buying on the first sweep. I'm glad I did, as I love it. 
2. Some obligatory shawl pins from The Textile Garden
3. One 100g skein of Scandinavian yarn from Midwinter Yarns - this is a stall I haven't seen before and the people were absolutely lovely, I did well to come away with only the one skein. It's similar to other yarn I've used - feels a bit rustic and rough in the skein, but blooms with a good soak. 
4. Some short length DPNs from Knitting4Fun. I could make up a reason for needing these but they are just so cute! 
5. Handles from Creative You (who also sell a great selection of t-shirt yarns). I already have a project in mind for these.

Mostly I will treasure the memories I brought home - but more on those tomorrow!

  3. Those felted animals are sweet. I can imagine them being bounced along by dimpled fingers along a table top. The Fair Isle dress is extraordinary. I love the "greeness" of it all.

  4. Gorgeous pile of stuff there I really love those handles. Gutted to hear about the natural dye studio I will miss their stuff but totally understandable. x

    1. Yes, I know - it's such a shame! The handles are great, aren't they!?
