May in Canberra means gorgeous autumn colour, and a move towards winter's frosty mornings and chilly nights.
It also means it's time for Canberra yarn lovers' favourite day of the year - the Celebration of Wool at the Old Bus Depot Markets - which is being held this Sunday 19 May.
The markets will be packed full of hand felted garments and accessories, designer knitwear, millinery, weavings, funky beanies and farm label knitwear. And, of course, yarn - glorious yarn - including hand spun and hand dyed yarns.
This year's stalls will also include the brand new Queanbeyan group of the NSW Knitter's Guild, who had their very first meeting just last week. If you want to know more about the Guild, or think you might like to join, make sure you pop by and see them.
One of our resident Brown Owls crochet and knitting experts, Renae from Suzy Hausfrau, will also be there with her gorgeous boutique yarns.
We would love to hear from you!
Are you planning to check out the Celebration of Wool? What will you be shopping for? Do you know of an ace stall holder who we must check out - help us plan our shopping time!
It would also be fun to know after Sunday if you bought anything, and what your plans are for it (stashing is a perfectly good plan!). Get in touch, and maybe we can have a bit of a yarny show and tell next week =)
Happy yarny crafting!
