I thought it was time I called in to York, as I am trying to write about stuff set there. There was a complete absence of werewolves, vampires and mayhem but there were lots and lots and lots of crowds. I could barely move. It was absolutely packed. York is a tourist town and also the centre of a lot of countryside. There are some glorious shops there if you like expensive shops. Even the market had a lot of upmarket and expensive stalls next to the ones selling cauliflower and rhubarb.
I tried taking photos but my camera wasn't co-operating. What I need is a cheap camera that transfers to the laptop. I have no idea where to start. There was a camera shop in York, but the cheapest camera in the window was over £300 so probably not what I am looking for.
I did buy some fabric when I got back to Leeds. There is a shop selling fabric and yarn on George Street, next to the market (not Great George Street next to the hospital, easily confused). I recommend it. They are very tolerant of amateurs such as myself, are very competitively priced and even have some Doctor Who fabric that I haven't seen anywhere else, not even on eBay. I didn't have anything in my stash to make a table cloth for the little chest of drawers that are now next to my chair. I think it needs it as I keep splashing it with my drink, and I love fabric everywhere anyway. I managed to take this photo of the fabric.
I haven't seen this on eBay either.
Tomorrow I plan to concentrate on knitting. I wonder what I'll actually end up doing.
