Unwind Brighton - a surprisingly fantastic day!

Went to Brighton on Saturday.  I went to partake in a little yarn at Unwind while my boys went to the aquarium.
We went by train as the car journey can be stressful! And got there in good time so I visited Fabricland.  It is a cheap and cheerful fabric shop - where I bought these two beauties for the princely sum of £30 - there is 8 meters of fabric here!!  Have to say although I have not used the fabric yet, I was very impressed with the price and the friendliness of the staff.

I then made my way to the corn exchange. 
I met my friend from Ravelry and after about 10 minutes of browsing found myself manning a stall for signature needles with no paypal, no cashbox, no price list and no prior experience of the needles at all!! That said no one seemed to mind and I sold several hundred pounds worth in no time - they must be good! Here we are on the stall!

After a couple of hours I managed to escape and buy yarn - here is some of it - a sq of DK from Eden Cottage in Raspberry tart - a sweater I will be testing.
I picked up a few other bits and pieces too but am keeping them under wraps as I may use them in a Xmas parcel later this year!

Having done a little shopping I then went to meet my boys (husband and 2 little ones).  We had a marvellous fish and chip lunch on the seafront, then ice cream on the beach.

Finished the day with a leisurely walk back to the train stopping at a couple of public houses enroute!!

So all in all a lovely day - how was your weekend?

Will be linking with KCCO this week - hop over to see some more!!


  1. What a wonderful time you had. How great your husband entertained the kids while you did your thing. Good spoils you got.

  2. This looks like you had a fabulous day! And the yarn you bought is fantastic. I love the deep, rich color. I can't wait to see what you make out of it.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful day, it's events like these that seem to happen in the UK that don't here in Ireland make me wish I lived there. The Raspberry tart looks gorgeous and I love the fabrics, both equally.

  4. That yarn looks lovely what a gorgeous colour. I made some brooches using your tutorial this week!
