A Yarn of Spring Chickens

I thought I'd go for a mini Easter theme post today and share this cute little chick called Puddle. A super cute knitting pattern from Sincerely Louise. Made in some fluffy yarn he is absolutely adorable and really fun to make. 

 Here is how he came to be.

In March I got the chance to attend the first ever East Anglia Yarn Festival. It was such a great surprise to hear this was taking place and to see so many local makers and yarn dyers showcasing their talents. Plus a few from further away. What's best is that it didn't involve a massive trip to London or Birmingham. 

It was held near the airport. Yes, Norwich has an airport. Yes it's every bit as shit as you would imagine. 

The festival however was excellently put together by The Lonely Knitter, Noodle Soup Yarns and The Fibre Fox - and I am informed that next year March 2023 will be a massive event at The Norfolk Showground. Dates for your diary. And your wallet. 

I have a bit of regret about not snapping up some sock yarn from the Curated Yarn Co. as it was just so beautiful!

I did make a few little purchases whilst I was there and these were mainly from Sincerely Louise. I was a bit of a fan girl and went over for a picture and chat with Louise and her partner who were both absolutely lovely.  I picked up some patterns and fuzzy yarn to make Puddle and of course, I also went for a tortoise pattern (still to be made up).

Wishing you all a lovely long weekend (if you're having one) and if you need cheering up for any reason. Just look at this little face!!!!
