This festival has been on my bucket list of must visits for a few year's.
For me my time in Edinburgh has not just been about yarn, it has been way way more. It has been about a journey of beginning to believe in myself as a designer. Also about overcoming the anxiety of being away from my family.
It has been about having the confidence to go up to people I have never met and talking to them.
But it has also been about gathering inspiration and learning and boy does Edinburgh have inspiration by the bucket load!!!
The architecture is just beyond what I have seen before and the colours are just such an inspiration.
So please do enjoy journey I have taken over the last few days in picture form.
On my final day at the show I bought the Laine knitting journal, which will be so great for designing. But decided to grap the opportunity of creating the most perfect keepsake and ask people I admire to sign what ever they wanted. The messages are so amazing and inspiring, thank you.
Last week I celebrated my birthday.
I received beautiful flowers, my dear friend sent me a gorgeous skein of yarn and a pattern, along with the perfect project bag.
The following day my son and I took a trip to WWT Slimbridge where we did a canoe trip and safari which was fascinating.
All in all a great couple of day.
