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.
