This weekend saw Penzance at it’s cutest. The town was the host of Penwith Environmental Network’s Autumn Fair; St. John’s hall became home to a plethora of local food suppliers and environmental campaigners. Food was the theme of the event, so I have sampled some lovely local honey and cakes as well as salads that have been grown in the town. It was rather yummy!
These sort of events seem to attract Penzance’s friendliest residents and always feel so welcoming and cosy. I had the sort of afternoon that really makes you appreciate living in a rural area. I loved the music and dancing and bought some lovely lettuce babies from POG that will survive the winter and provide salads in spring (hopefully!).
My hat is still making slow progress, but I’m on my way. I have been inspired by the wonderful hats that were on display at the autumn fair, so I am ready to get knitting! Hopefully I will be the owner of two hand-knitted hats by the weekend – I’ll let you know how it goes!
