Loop the loop and other things!!

i had the most fantastic day on Friday - as you have probably seen from other blogs, there was a bit of a meet up!! (moogsmom, Lucky Locket, Trashcan and Fan my Flame and Ali, Lucy's sister) (have not done the link as i always muck it up!!) it was just great and everybody i met was absolutely lovely! CL Fair was HUGE and sooo many people but just the most gorgeous stands - but i was good and did not dent the credit card - much to my husband's amazement!

I did get this lovely fabric which was a bargain

isn't it just beautiful!! I love a bargain!!

i forgot to mention that on meeting up with the 'girls' they all gave me lovely presents (being a novice i did not know that bloggers did this but will make sure i do next time!)

wasn't i lucky.

Anyway after an exhausting day we then decided to visit Loop which is a small but beautiful yarn shop! i could have stayed in there for ages - such gorgeous yarns - i did buy some and here it is

it feels as good as it looks!!! I also bought the latest Vogue Knitting mag as well!

Sadly after this we had to go our separate ways, trashy and i had a train to catch, but hopefully there will be another meet up!

well thats all for now, have to go and rescue dinner as i am typing this and then rushing into the kitchen to do what needs to be done!

will be back soon when things are not soo rushed!

It was really lovely to meet you Maria - I even have a photo of you sticking your tongue out for the camera but I was sweet and didn't blog it! I think I'd said to stick our tongues out but nobody else did!!!!

Loop was lovely wasn't it? I'd like to go back for a course some day and we should all definitely meet up again soon!

You got the blog going again then? What happened? What was it you had to put right? (Sorry, but the techy-geeky bit in me would like to know *blush*)

Glad you all had such a fab time. x

Thanks for your lovely comment on my newly formed blog and it was great meeting you on Friday and having such a good time.

I wonder if Loop man has recovered yet from the intrusion!

It really was a fab day and Loop rounded it off perfectly! I love the yarn you bought - have you started using it yet?

Can't wait to see you all again soon :-)
