We had an out today to a new event - Kendal wool gathering. Held in the K shopping village in Kendal(gateway to the lakes)
Free event, free parking and very good for a first event.
I didn't need anything but saw this yarn and loved it. It was a new to me dyer Yarn garden
The website is under construction but well worth a visit. This is called Tree Lupin and comprises 70% BFL, 20% silk and 10% cashmere. 100gms 400 metres.
Not a colour I'd have thought of buying or dyeing but I loved it.
Who were also very interested in the alpacas;)
We were then taken to a rather splendid eatery by the friend we were with and this is my part eaten lunch before I tackled the rest. Cumin crusted lamb flatbread with salads. Very delicious
