A day at Unravel

I bought this gloriously coloured wool from Michelle Green (see post below) who has spun and dyed it herself.
This trompe d'oiel pot plant hung in the entrance.

I spent the whole of Sunday looking round Unravel at Farnham Maltings. There was so much to see. Best of all the Designers' Room where yarn became art. Check out www.derynrelph.co.uk www.emmabradbury.com www.halfandhalf.posterous.com and www.gabriellevary.co.uk Why aren't these people famous? They design and make the most amazing things.
Last year I had a stand at Unravel. But having a stand means you don't get to look around. And there were so many good things to look at if you are interested in knitting. Workshops and talks. A fashion show. Loads of trade stands to buy yarns and accessories from.
I wish now I'd taken a picture of the Plant Dyed Wool stand where a lovely lady wearing a dress she'd woven herself was selling looms and the most vibrantly coloured woven blankets. Check out www.plantdyedwool.co.uk
