Woolfest here I come

It looks like I'm going to Woolfest. OH didn't take much pursuading. I think it was the mention of 'alpaca' and 'rare breed sheep' that did it. I've said that if we're going we'll need to book the hotel soon, like by the end of the weekend. There are no cheap train tickets to Carlisle, so it doesn't matter when we book the train.

The amethyst chips I ordered for the Arachne's Tears scarf I'm making from Interweave Crochet arrived today. They're a bit big but they were the smallest ones I could find as most of the bead websites I looked at didn't state a size. They're very pretty and match perfectly but I also have more than I need. Now I just need to buy some purple thread at the weekend and finish the scarf.

I've realised I have far too many WIPs. I must try and get the ones that won't take much effort to finish finished.

Thanks for the comment on Short n Sweet - I'm so pleased with it as I've really never done anything like it before. Whereas you are clearly an experienced crocheter ?

I'm doing Woolfest too and trying to save my pennies for it as from past experience there will be loads of lovely stuff :0)
