There were also lots of stalls including the Knitting & Crochet Guild where I renewed my membership & bought a few treats for myself:

books
books & an old copy of Interweave knits

I was very good and didn’t buy any yarn for myself but I did buy a variety of presents for a couple of different people. I intend to use the Ann Budd book to design a jumper or cardigan to knit up the Merino et Soie that I got for my Elsebeth Lavold book to use up some Silky Wool and Silky Tweed that lurk in my stash. I also bought these for Knitty Fred
