Knit and Stitch Show - Bath and West

On Saturday I went to the Knit and Stitch Show at Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet.  This show is not too far from me and I go every year, but increasingly it has been taken over by card making and each year there is less and less for the knitter.  Some yarn suppliers remain faithful to it and my Mum and I had a wonderful time at the Black Sheep Wools stand where the lovely Black Sheep people pile all the yarn on the floor and let ladies rummage through.  Such fun.

Black Sheep Wools

I bought (at really good prices)   :
Rowan Yarn Classic Alpaca Soft in a mustard colour
Sirdar Balmoral (a Wool, Alpaca, Silk mix) in purple
Rowan Purelife in a colour something like raspberry sorbet.

The lighting in the main hall is a bit tricky and these photos do not do justice to the colours in the heap, but you get the idea.
