Just wanted to share few photos from yesterday's Edinburgh Yarn Festival.
It was fantastic. There were so many knitters and spinners and crocheters. So many yarn to drool over and knits to admire. I met lovely Ysolda and Dani and other talented people. There also were few stalls with buttons and I was happy to find TextileGarden among them. It's my favourite online button shop and it was so nice to speak to the owner in person.
I think I got dizzy from all those colours and shapes...
The amount of yarn on display was quite overwhelming and I found it pretty difficult to choose yarn that I really wanted to buy. After hours of browsing I finally settled on three delicious skeins from YarnPony. Very squishy 100% merino wool, hand-dyed here in Edinburgh. I'm really happy with my purchase and with the fact that I didn't buy anything else. I'm trying hard to control myself when it comes to shopping for new yarn and I think I'm slowly growing out of spontaneous buys.
this lovely pullover.
