If you didn’t make it to Woollinn this year, the above hashtag sums it up in one (okay, technically 5) word! I’m interrupting my regular postings to bring you this quick review of an absolutely stupendous event, especially for a first year!
I would have to say the theme of the event this year was #colour!! It was everywhere, vibrant, and saturated. Here is a link to a walk through I did on Facebook. Unfortunately, because of the size of it, it didn’t upload in HD. 🙁
There was an great list of instructors teaching a variety of classes from the Friday – Sunday and you had the marketplace open Friday and Saturday! There was also a little shinding on the Saturday with dinner, dancing, and of course, karaoke. I couldn’t believe that @JulieknitsinParis was actually dancing while knitting! Check this out!
Needless to say, there will be reviews upcoming, but I had a horrible time posting anything at all in Ireland, as the wi-fi just didn’t seem to want to work with my computer. So I’ll leave you with some pictures as a teaser for now, and after I get caught up with Scotland, I’ll come back to this!
