It was busy and great fun at Yarndale at the weekend. I saw so many people I knew and had so little time to talk to any of them beyond an hello and catch you later type conversation which was a pity. This time I did manage some photos of the event though and I’ve shared lots of them on the Adelaide Walker facebook page but here’s a few I saved for you. I loved this stall by HanneMADE, very calming, very interesting.


These crocheted animals which are from a book called Edward’s Menagerie seemed to be very popular and looked great with so many of them hanging around!



This fun figure was visible from all over the auction mart. It belongs to the local yarn shop who originally made it for when the Tour de France was in town but it’s now accompnaying them as they get out and about. There are plans for a Christmas outfit I’m told.


Finally, this autumnal hanging from the Embroiderers Guild caught my eye and I have to admit I didn’t get the name of the maker but I fell in love with the colours and texture.


Yarndale will be back again next year on the last weekend in September.

  1. I spoke to the lady at the Embroider’s Guild who had made the hanging at the end of your post, didn’t catch the name, but the colours were based on a beach where she went on holiday and the shells etc were from the beach! A wonderful holiday memory.

  2. I must admit to not taking nearly as many photos as I did last year, I was put off by a lady (this is last year) who rounded on me and accused me of trying to steal her ideas when I took a photo! She was there again this year and I was reminded of her disgruntlement and it made me quite reticent about using my camera!

  3. Shame it put you off as looking at the photos after is all part of the fun. Sorry I didn’t have chance to chat 🙂
