After I Knit Fandango and the Knitting & Stitching Show in London I immersed myself in a new yarn fair: Unravel.
My traveling mate is always Kate (Made by Kate), we always manage to stand out for our habits among the stalls (hoping that nobody understands the stupid things we say in Italian!).
Let’s start from the beginning: Unravel is a festival of knitting for people fond of yarns, spinning, weaving, dyeing, knitting, crochet… is held every year in Farnham, in Surrey, in a very interesting place called Farnham Maltings. Here, in addition to some craft fairs and workshops, they hold theater performances, film screenings, lectures, concerts. It embraces and sustains the culture in all its forms and expression, it is a place to love.
It welcomed us with fabric garlands and knitted and crocheted items in each corner. A cozy place rich in wonders…
Books, lots of books, wonderful books…
Pom Pom magazine with a lot of knitted and crocheted garments and inevitable colored pom pom.
I looked at these socks and thought to Giuseppina Flamini (Knittingcakes) and her equally pretty socks and the fact that I would like endless days to try them all and fill all my drawers!
And the perfect and wonderful creations nothing short by Jules of Woollenflower.
But no fantasy trip can be better than this wall made by colorful skeins!
Then we barged into the Hampshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers & Dyers world between weaving…
and spinning (but also dyeing, knitting machines and other bizarre and ancient techniques).
My eyes lit in front of some vintage corners. I’d bought everything, needless to say!
They could not miss essential accessories as bowls for yarns in ceramic by Wendy’s Yarn Bowl.
Every kind of bags by Pink Hazel (I need them all!).
Unravel was not just that, I do not know enough positive adjectives to describe everything and I do not have a SD in my camera big enough… in my photos lack Sincerely Louise, Kettle yarn, Easyknits, Yarn in the City, Triskelion yarn and many others that worth to know. But I hope to have you driven in an interesting journey and fed even more (if possible!) the passion for this world.
The last picture could only be that of our tired but happy faces! In a few days we will read the post written by Kate, on her blog, therefore the photos are not finished!!!
