Yarndale was a much anticipated addition to the wool festival line-up over here, so much so that there where far more visitors to the show than I think the organisers anticipated. Not to gloss over the problems with parking, toilets and disabled access but none of them impacted on me directly and I know that they are being taken into consideration for the future of the show, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I hope it becomes a regular event.
I took the train over to Skipton on the Saturday morning and decided to walk up to the Auction Market through the park so I got to see all the fabulous yarn bombing that Lucy had organised (for more photos see Lucy's blog, Attic24)
Once I got in I had a slow mooch round taking in everything that was there as best I could as it was starting to get very busy, too busy for me to take many photo's unfortunately. But I did get ones of the alpaca's and angora bunnies.
Finally a shot of what must have been the iconic shot of Yarndale, the bunting strewn entrance (again more on Attic24)
As summer was treating us to a final flurish last weekend, we took the children down to the Middleton Railway on the Sunday for a ride and then for walk in Middleton Woods.
