The Edinburgh Yarn Festival Update

I've struggled to keep writing here since I returned to Singapore. I'm hoping that things will get better soon, but in the meantime, here's a bit about my last minute EYF trip.

Am I ever so glad that I made the trip!

Due to moving to the other side of the world, I had kind of given up on going a few months ago, but the fabulous husbear told me I should just go anyway. He's awesome, and he's totally a keeper.

Spending Time with Knitters 

This is absolutely the #1 reason to go, to spend time with people who are also passionate about knitting.

It's such an inspiration for someone like me, who is hoping to get into designing and other knitting-related endeavours. The people watching is amazing because people put extra effort into their knits for the festival.

And I've met so many wonderful people that I cannot even begin to name them all.

Taking a Class

We already know that I'm an Olga Buraya-Kefelian fangirl, so let's leave it at that.

But I'd definitely recommend taking a class, if only because it justifies the travel costs.

The Marketplace 

It's awesome, and it's also the least important of the reasons to go.

Since I now live far away from my beloved Loop, it was great to get to squish all the new yarns and touch all the samples.

I went with a plan, targeted at yarns that would be more suitable for Singapore, and it worked pretty well. I will talk more about the yarns on another day.
