I’m still under the impression that I was in some kind of twilight zone during these very few days in Edinburgh, a dimension where yarn crafts are everywhere and celebrated by everyone. I’m exhausted and I need some sleep. Yet, I’d like to post an article to show you what I particularly liked and what I bought at the festival.

I arrived at 09:30 and there was already a queue. In front of the main building, round the corner into the next street. I don’t mind waiting in a queue. It was not raining and I could enjoy some kind of “catwalk show”, performed by knitters and crocheters proudly wearing their handmade items, a rich collection full of colors and textures. Even before getting into the festival building, you could already admire plenty of yarn projects!Continue reading
