Knitted fun at Unravel
I am almost lost for word – how amazing was Unravel this weekend? Let me tell you all about it!
This unique festival of knitting takes place in picturesque Farnham, a lovely little town with charming houses, shops and people. We traveled to Farnham on Friday, I came by train from London and Tracy drove down from Cambridge. I think my journey might have been the least stressful of the two… But we got there, got the stand set up and then checked in to our cute hotel, the Bishops Table. Even got a free upgrade and got treated to a lovely double room each! What luxury!
The hotel and its back garden provided a lovely calm base for our weekend of hard work!
Saturday morning we made our way to the show and was met by all sorts of knitted fun! Lamp posts, bins and bridges were all decorated with knitted stuff – also called yarnbombing! Great fun!
The knitted fun kept on coming inside the Farnham Maltings where the festival was taking place.
Knitted art, tea cosies, farm animals and loo roll covers – there was no stopping the organisers of this event!
We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend spent in Farnham. We met lots of lovely people, including the woman who knitted the jumper worn by Miles Jupp on Let’s Dance for Sport Relief, had some great cake, saw some beautiful yarn stalls and spread the Purl Alpaca message to lots of new customers. Can we come back again next weekend, please?
