I went to the wonderful Unravel at the Maltings in Farnham, Surrey on Saturday.  Walked round and round all day, spent money, met some lovely people and was thoroughly inspired, tired but happy at the end of the day. 

I bought the sari silk above on the Knitting4Fun stand.  A really popular stand with some very patient chaps running it. 

Joyce Meader's talk on the development of knitting and patterns over the last 200 years was full of information and laughs.  She generously brings along a small part of her huge collection of knitwear and patterns for everyone to see. If you ever get the chance to see  her, don't miss it. 

I revisited the Threshing Barn stand five or six times.  The buttons in the picture were bought there.  Then  I hypnotised myself at Textile Garden's stand, drawn in by the beauty of more lovely buttons. 

I also made purchases at Fyberspates, Tallyarns and Artisan Yarns and the High Weald Fibre Factory.
