Yarn shops. Yarn festivals. Craft fairs. They are a bit of a busman's holiday for us, but I love them. Mr Sconch despairs that everytime we go somewhere new the first thing I do is look for a wool shop. 'But why?' he always asks. Cos I love yarn? Isn't it obvious?!
Well on Sunday, I dragged us all along to the Ickworth Wool festival. It is only about 45 mintues from us, held at the beautiful Ickworth Hall. It is a National Trust property, and is set in pretty grounds. The fair itself was held outside in the grounds under a marquee and various free standing tents.
It wasn't as big as I had hoped it would be, but we did have a rather lovely day. I started off taking lots of photos for you, including of the amazing sheep show.
