Well....who knew. The Edinburgh Yarn Festival is A THING - the place was heaving with exhibitors and visitors from all round the world desperate to get their hands on the yarn (and the cakes!). There were hundreds of, mainly women, decked out in their favourite knits and crochet creations (all commenting on each other’s and spotting the various designers amongst the crowd). C and I were rather overwhelmed-we had no idea it would feel like such a cult! Met up with CR and someone C knew and we wandered, chatted, squeezed skeins and admired creations between catch ups over lunch and coffee and cake. I ended up too swamped with choice and bought nothing!
Home in time to meet up with T&Kt and we headed out of town and up to Perthshire. The sun broke through and we had a lovely drive through the hills to the hotel.
We all had some down time (I headed to the lounge to sit by the fire and read) before G&Ts and then a very delicious dinner (smoked salmon, duck, rhubarb tart) before a relatively early night. Lovely day
