It has been a busy few weeks. The week before last saw Stevan and I and the dogs heading south for Yarndale in Skipton, North Yorkshire. This was my third outing at Yarndale, and as usual it was well organised and well attended. This year I tried to remember to take some photographs:



Aaaaaannnnnnd ………… Collapse

What a wonderful weekend at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival.

I could end this blog entry right now and that first sentence would say it all. But I know you’d be disappointed if I didn’t have more to say and I feel like there is bit of an Oscar speech coming on!

First, let me […]

On the eve of Edinburgh Yarn Festival

Tomorrow the Edinburgh Yarn Festival will be OPEN for business!

Today was all about the hard work of setting up. We arrived to find our stand ready for us, albeit a little bare looking:

The first thing to happen was the beautiful plan I’d drawn up and mapped out got screwed up into a […]

On the road ….. again!

This week will find me on my way to Kelso to the Border Union Agricultural Show. Today was glorious in Assynt, and so I took the opportunity to do a good sort out of the yarn I am taking with me. I certainly got my dose of Vitamin D today.

Highland Wool and Textile Fair

And here is why:

Good Friends

It has been a bit quiet on the blog in recent days as we’ve been busy with our good friends, Neil and Gilly, who are on a grand tour of Scotland – you can follow their adventures on Gilly’s blog.

There is obviously something about forthcoming visits to us that causes folk to break bones! […]

Upcoming Exciting Event

I’m mentioning this now as I will be away for a couple of weeks in September, and it is happening in little over a month, so you may want to make plans to visit Inverness on Saturday 6th October 2012.

I am very excited about this event. There are some really exciting stallholders, and […]
