Unwound

It’s been two weeks since we came back from Brighton, but I guess I’m still suffering from Unwind Brighton hangover. I miss it so much!

We went to Brighton on Thursday before the festival. Kids stayed with their grandparents and we could finally take our first trip alone (since we had kids). The whole journey was on time and we safely got to our B&B. It was located very close to the sea shore and all festival venues were within walking distance. Brighton turned out to be fabulous. I could live there so much.

All four days were planned to the last minute. I tried to meet as many people as possible but I’m pretty sure I misseed saying hello to some knitters. The venue was fabulous. So many talented people in one place! It was almost magical. And so much yarn!!! Every time I went around the market place (“just to look around” as I said to my Hubby) I came back with some gorgeous skeins in my hands. Well, that weekend my stash got enhanced substantially :-)

When I was taking clasess with Ragga, Marcin maganed to snap a few pics of knitters proudly wearing “On the Pier”. I was so touched when he showed me the photos.

We also managed to meet up with a couple of our Polish friends living in the UK, which was so much fun!

There are a lot more pics which you can find in my Instagram feed and Polish blog, but I bet what you are really dying to see my yarn haul…

It was so difficult not to spend all my money on yarn. I bought a lot of single skeins from various yarnies to “try” as many as possible. I forsee a lot of accessories this winter :-) However, that beige/brown silk blend is going to be a sweater for sure. Marcin also gifted me my very first Signatures, which at the moment are still waiting for a worthy project (which will be happening soon, I hope).

I admire Dani (who organized the festival together with a couple of her friends) so much. It must have been so much work! And I hope she will organize it again. I’ll be coming for sure!
