Fibre Flurry!

Last weekend I was at Fibre Flurry and I had a fantastic time!

Thanks to the lovely Joy of The Knitting Goddess, I was there with my patterns....


I'm not going to tell you how many times the 'washing line' of socks fell down, it's safe to say A LOT and my language towards it got progressively worse as the day went on.

I met lots of lovely people, some for the first time, some I had met before and really enjoyed catching up with. Topics of conversation included Poirot and Auntie Mabel (recently seen in Doctor Who), it was busy and tiring but lovely at the same time - I can't wait for next year!

I won this lovely prize in the pHop raffle...


It's a bag from Nicsknots, a skein of yarn from Babylonglegs and a stitchmarker from Atomic Knitting - a special collaboration for the show, I love it!


Sarah from the Undercover Owl delivered my new sushi sock bag and I found a skein of Babylonglegs sock yarn called Wasabi - how could I walk away when it was so clearly meant to be??


I also picked up a SACK of grey merino from Hedgehog Equipment, 700g of it, I don't know if my poor little spindle can handle it, I think I need a spinning wheel.....


  1. Oooh! Quite the haul. That Wasabi yarn is amazing!

  2. I saw you walking around with that roving... and wondered who was selling entrails >.<
    I am such a weirdo :P
    Was great to see you, m'love... and I am glad you like your Wasabiii-iiii ...
    S xXx

  3. That is a lot of merino. You need to be careful, at this rate you'll end up with fibre coming out of every cupboard (just like me!)

  4. Haha. Your socks were doing the same as my bunting. I didn't complain much either ;) Your socks looked fab when I saw them, I keep looking at them on Rav and trying to decide which I should make first.

  5. Was lovely to meet you (and talk about Auntie Mabel!) I'm having major regrets about not buying that Bella's Truck yarn even though I blew my budget.

    Love the yarn and bag (both of them!)


  6. Hi,
    Bought your First Beach Socks at Fibre Flurry.
    On "Heel Flap" what does "kfb" mean? (not in list of abbreviations).
