Ribbon Circus, finally

Back in February, I went to a fund-raising sale for Ribbon Circus in Hebden Bridge, one of the many businesses and houses in the Calder Valley that was flooded last December.   The shop re-opened in March, and I intended to visit shortly afteerwards, but it snowed on the day I was planning to go, so I didn't.  But finally, last Saturday, I got there.

It was a beautiful, sunny, warm spring day and Hebden Bridge was busy - it was great to see so many visitors returning.

And there were some very tempting yarns in Ribbon Circus.  I didn't buy any - it would be too frustrating to have new yarn when I can't knit.  (Due to two broken wrists, if you missed the earlier post.)   But I will.  The Juniper Moon 75% alpaca, 25% nylon was especially enticing - I'll be going back for some of that.  (It's sock yarn, but would be wasted on socks if you ask me - I'm not much of a sock knitter.)

Helen of Ribbon Circus, me with my casts, and lots of lovely yarn

Two more weeks until the casts come off my wrists, and the splint on my left leg gets changed for something that allows some bending of the knee.  Can't wait.  


  1. I'm glad that you finally got to visit and it is good to know that you are on the mend. The Juniper Moon yarn is particularly gorgeous!

    1. Hope to get back for the Crafternoon Tea in June - though I'll need to organise a lift. My wrists should be out of the casts by then, but I'll probably still have a brace on my leg of some sort.

  2. Great picture of you and Helen!
