Visiting the Harrogate show in terms of buying opportunities is like alighting in Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. Endless stalls of fabulous must-have, just-can't-do-without fibres, yarns, fabrics and threads.
I will only buy what I need.
I know what I am looking for.
I have a list.
I lied over and over again.
But I came home thrilled beyond measure over my bag of Habu goodies. Who could resist raw silk wrapped paper and raw silk tassar yarns which make me sigh when I look at them?

Artisan tempted me with beautiful hand-dyed linen lace yarn in soft pewter, natural flax and most wondrously so so soft seaweed silk yarn in pure ivory. I was lost!
For anyone who has experienced the fibre extravaganza that is Oliver Twists, well you will know what happened next... undone and beyond...
Spending time indeed.
