Yarndale 2014 is a yarn festival, in its second year now and held in one of my favorite towns, Skipton. There were 6500 visitors to Yarndale 2013. Described as "a creative festival celebrating all things woolly and wonderful" - woolly and wonderful, how can you not resist that? - it also features the Knit 'n Natter Lounge where you can pull up a chair and work on a project of your own while getting to know other "yarnoholics".
I can't remember how I stumbled on this site. Several of the bloggers I read are avid knitters/crocheters so it must have been on one of them. I am hopeless at both crafts but I can't help but think how much Mum would have loved to attend the event. Before she lost her sight, she was an avid knitter and we have lots of things to remember her by.
Hopefully, it will continue to be an annual event and I'm thinking that any visit we plan to England, Jodie, should be in September!
