Last weekend was Yarndale, which takes place in skipton. It is a yarn paradise. I didn't take any pictures apart from the Yarndale Sheep.

They appeared on all the promotion for this years show. I found some great photo's of the show on Pink Milks site.
I bought myself some new needles for projects I am doing at the moment, I just love the knit pro circular needles, I like metal tips not the wooden ones.

I did treat myself to this and the wool needed.

The wool is alpaca.
