On Saturday I went to the Moral Fibre open day with Sue, blogless Dianne and Gareth, her hubby.
I fell off the wagon.
I bought fibre.
Two shades of green merino.
There were a lot of people there.
They had spinning, felting and weaving tasters. Several people were wearing hand knit or hand felted garments. The machines were something else too! I'd love one of the huge carding machines and as for the felting machine... lust is the only description!
We then went to Ludlow to have a wander round the shops and find some food. There is a good yarn shop with lots of nice things like Rowan, Debbie Bliss, Jaeger and they also had Regia sock yarn. I didn't buy any yarn!! There are some lovely black and white buildings in Ludlow. This is the Feathers Hotel.
There's also a good view of Titterstone Clee from the Park & Ride carpark. If you're a fan of Ellis Peters' Brother Cadfael books you'll know that 'The Virgin In The Ice' is set around this area. No sign of either monks, snow or bandits while I was there though. ;-)
