woweeeeeee! what a weekend!
the weekend just gone, marked the hosting of the inaugural wool gathering event at tarndie, and boy was it a great one!
i spent the weekend, wearing an apron, helping out to ensure everyone was having the best time they could be! though those tasks kept me pretty occupied, i managed to flit around and take a fair few photos too!
the event started out pretty nicely for us "staff" (helpers and teachers) with some beautifully motivating words from karen, and some bubbles with a side of tea and a spot of knitting.
before we got settled in to start welcoming folks at the registration desk.
after some dinner, and (hopefully) a good night's rest, the attendees flocked back to tarndie on friday, saturday and sunday for some excellent woolly classes.
knitting, spinning, dyeing, and that was just what i managed to snap photos of! there was also weaving, crochet, embroidery and farm touring happening too!
with all that fun, thankfully there was still a bit of time for resting (knitting) too...
unless you're saffy the dog, then there was LOTS of time for resting!
after a slow few days this week to recover, i'm really looking forward to getting started on next year's event! one or two kinks to iron out, and then next year's should be even better! can't wait!
