It was lovely to fill the farm and have an audience to waffle at.
Sharon took photos, which she has put on her blog, she tells the story much better than me.
Ladies - its was lovely I really enjoyed having you here and please feel free to come back when you have the time.
Then of course the ubiquitous pom pom cosy, not very exciting, but had to be done.
This in turn lead me to the loopy stitch, the effect of which I love, so many possibilities.
Have now moved to crochet, think I like crochet better than knitting, only one stitch to drop, stupid me didn't work out the basic cosy first and after starting too small to get it over the pot, I had to pull it down and add some more stitches. Decided to add an extra 10, why I don't know as I only needed an extra inch and with 3 stitches to the inch.....

Germany, Austria, Liestenstein ( obviously spelt wrong) and Switzerland.
Drove through Strasbourg in the rush over, over the Rhine into Germany, I got to drive the autobahn with my little fat foot firmly on the floor, 100 mph in the slow lane, could have spent the rest of my life driving around Germany on the autobahn eating up petrol.
A German service station (told you the photos were exciting!)
Over the top of the Bodensee, through the cherry orchards, if only we were a few weeks later....
A quick supermarket stop for Austria cough syrup, DH decided he had man flu! Through Leicenstein, into Switzerland.
Ended up in Chur for the night, couldn't find a hotel, even though we looked for about an hour, eventually ended up at an Ibis in the McDonalds pyramid, the ground floor was McDonalds, the top of the building a hotel, its on the industial estate on the way out of town, wish I had taken a photo...... Certainly an experience not to be missed
184 kilos for the woolfest, I am in a huge panic that I won't get it all done in time.
Seems to be taking ages with no end in sight and only 2 weeks to go.....
If you are going come and see me.
