My friends tutor on a Saturday, so I took the opportunity to take my God-daughter Scarlett out for the day (it helps that she is a very crafty 12 year old) to Yarndale. Fortunately Gaynor managed to find a way for us to get to Skipton - I had no idea how remote this area is!!!!! This is the station that we drove to (which took about 45 minutes)......
When we got to Skipton, the hoards of women walking in the same direction gave us the answer to the first question of the day - which way now?
After a 20 minute walk (I walk very slowly) we finally arrived having enjoyed the lovely sight of a park full of yarn bombing.
And then we set to it, we got to see the mandalas that were made for last year
We took the free bus back to the train station, which was definitely something not to be missed
I got lots of inspiration from the event. If I am brutally honest it was a bit to busy for me. Another time I think I would probably go away over lunch and then come back till the end, I believe it was quieter then. But I am sure that I will return.
The following day I could hardly walk but my lovely hosts spoke with a friend (the local gamekeeper) and got permission to drive me on private roads right up into the moors for the most beautiful picnic.....
North Yorkshire has definitely won my heart!
