Knitters are the best, especially when they're on safari

The Knitting Safari was a lovely fun day! Knitters came from far and wide (well, Tyne & Wear and Cambridge are pretty far apart, geographically speaking) and they nattered, workshopped, drank tea, ate cake, knitted, bought luscious yarn and fibre, swapped stash and gave generously of their time, money and expertise.

A few glimpses of the day (if you don't want to wade through my waffling, there's a Flickr set).

Liz took this as we were waiting with my yarn near Hove Town Hall for the number 2 bus to Woodingdean. I'm trying not to look too much like a bag lady, hence the slightly sheepish grin.

Wibbo's Works shared a stand with Annie of Up Knit Creek. That's her skulking in the background wearing an awfully nice waistcoat...

I never believe folks when they tell me that I wave my hands around when I'm talking. Wrong - here's the living proof. The nicely restrained hands on the left belong to Steph.

There was a lot of concentration going on in the workshop area (you know who you are); bossing things along were Suemoon and Glittrgirl.

And there was a fair amount of hilarity too.

There was hand dyed and hand spun yarn, fibre, sock blanks, dyes, ceramic yarn bowls and all manner of other lovely knitterly things, not to mention spinning demos and a raffle that raised over £145 for Suemoon's Walk the Walk breast cancer awareness fund. Oh, and there was cake. Lots of cake.
