I head off towards Edinburgh in the wee hours of tomorrow morning for Edinburgh Yarn Festival!
And these beauties will make up my travel knitting. Both are commissioned designs, and with airport and bus time I should get them both finished! (famous last words)
The yellower green to the left is Kinlun from Miss Babs Yarn, in shade 'Hops' and the other is Ginger Twist Studio Masham Mayhem DK in shade 'Part of your World' (which ahem came all the way from Edinburgh).
I'm looking forward to catching up with friends this weekend, exploring Edinburgh (I haven't visited in about 20 years) and meeting lots of new knitters, in particular those taking my classes. Reckon we're on for a pretty good weekend :)
If you're around and about at EYF saturday morning, I'm signing copies of Painted Woolly Toppers at The Knitting Goddess stand from 11.30am to 12 - do pop along, try on a few Hats and I'll sign your book for you!
Joy has knitted all of the Hats from the book in her yarns, so you can perfectly match yarn to pattern. I'm on hand to give some Hat wearing advice, too, during the signing and Hat Clinic is always fun!
Before I go offline and spend an evening with my boys, I quickly want to tell you that I'll be donating £180.14 to Kidney Research UK from the sales of Torsione when I get back! This is brilliant, thank you! March is my quietest month of the year pattern sales wise, and that makes it even more special that so many of you offered your support - thank you.
