Woolfest Goodies

Well, I am just back from woolfest having spent a fantastic 2 days there. Here is everything I got.
Collected my Yarn forward sub , got the skein of laceweight for resubscribing and got 3 back issues as a present for a friend.

Collected my Hipknits project club bag, I asked Kerrie if I could collect it from her at woolfest rather than getting the refund, the yarn is lovely, going to have fun making beads this holiday with my kids too.
Got an Ilga Lega pattern from KCG trading along with a tape measure, and a booklet on broomstick crochet from another stall.

Got 800g deep purple 50%wool 50% acrylic, some of this is destined for the above Ilga Lega pattern.

Various yarns destined to be socks.

Sock yarn from the Yarn Yard (I also ordered 3 skeins of merino tencel in porage but as n only had 2 of each shade at the show, they will arrive later.

3 balls of wool and knitting needles for my younger son, he wants me to teach him to knit. He has already found a project bag to keep it all in. I think I will get him to knit strips then we will make them into a pencil case.
