Yarndale is so colourful - as soon as you walk in you see crocheted bunting
Lots of colourful yarn - this is the Laalbear stall.
I also bought this lovely green DK yarn from Wild Wood Wool
Apparently there was a theme of hand-dyed Blue Faced Leicester in the wool I bought! Here are all of the things I bought - the pinkish yarn is for my Mum
I also saw the Angora bunnies, sheep and alpacas
Before going, I saw on Instagram that a group of people were planning to meet for a picnic lunch so I decided to pack up my lunch and meet them there. We had agreed to wear granny square badges to allow us to recognise fellow Instagrammers and it was great fun. This is my granny square badge
I also made a name badge
I have lots of lovely new Instagram friends! If you want to see the photos from the picnic then just search Instagram for the hashtag #yarndalemeet2014
Ole said she wanted to come with me and she really enjoyed meeting the other crafters and seeing all the yarn (yarn photos taken at Laalbear's stall again, animal photos taken from the stall of the creators of Edward's Menagerie). I had my fellow Instagrammers helping me take some of these photos!
The end of the day finally came around and it was time to hop on the red bus back to the station
Yarndale was a great day out - I'm still bouncing around from the excitement of it all. Hopefully I'll go next year and meet up with everybody again.
