Bendigo wrap up 2016

The Women of Wool lunch was such a highlight of this years show for me. It was so lovely to get together with friends, old and new, eat good food and listen to inspiring women talk about their experiences.

I did buy some yarn, but not a whole lot. A jumpers worth of Nundle Yarn for Leon. I love this colour and they are one of the very few small mills operating in Australia, so something I really want to support.

I bought the yarn for Theme and Variation from Dyed by Hand Yarns, one of my favourite dyers. I'm really happy with these colours:

Unexpectedly I bought three braids of Kathy's Fibres merino in the colourway "Stained Glass". I'm going to spin them up for the contrast colour to Tracey, a pattern I've been thinking about for a long time.

I also bought some hand cream and Soak.

I kept looking at all the stunning sock yarn and thinking that if I bought them they would still be sitting in my stash next Bendigo and that would make me sad. So I was quite conservative with my yarn purchases. I had a lovely day. Each year I have more knitting friends and it was so lovely to see them and their excitement about Bendigo.

Right, I'm off to update my Ravelry stash page and queue so that everything will be up to date and squared away.
