What a wonderful day!
We met in the Piazza in Lemon Quay in the centre of Truro, and had a wonderful backdrop of flags and masts as we sat alongside the Cornwall Boat Show.
There was a good sized group of knitters, with people coming and going throughout the day. I met loads of knitters from Ravelry - hi all of you!
I also met a knitter local to Perranporth (our nearest place) and we're hoping to meet up and maybe even get a group going - finally!
Julia from Knit Wits at Penzance with the record-breaking needles turned up - complete with needles, yarn, and Guinnes Book of Records certificate. A truly amazing sight.
The weather held up for us, with only one shower during the whole day. We took refuge under the huge umbrellas covering the Hall for Cornwall's outside coffee area - well it was time for a delicious chunk of carrot cake and a latte anyway. ;-)
The lady from The Natural Fibre Company in Launceston was also there with a sack of their fabulous yarn. She very kindly gave everyone the opportunity to select a free 50g ball of the yarn as a taster. A very good way to get some new customers! I chose the "Pure 50/50 Alpaca & Shetland Wool" which is beautifully soft. I have no idea what I'll be making with it yet though.
The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all - hopefully we'll meet up again soon.
