The gold and silver are 50-50 merino/silk from Old Maiden Aunt which was probably the most popular booth at the festival. I'd been reading about her yarns for some time but the colours really need to be seen in person - just stunning. The skein on the right is Riverside Studio 4ply and actually hails from Wakefield, Quebec. I bought it at La Maison Tricotee's booth and just love the colourway - Moroccan Spice.
Then there was The Border Tart. She specializes in hand-dyeing with indigos. I've not seen yarn like Blue Moon before - deep, deep blue with just a hint of white, similar to Japanese shibori fabrics. I had to buy two skeins of DK and am quite excited to find the perfect project for this.
And speaking of colourwork, how perfect are these J.C. Rennie 10g mini-balls, bought at Wee County Yarns?
Ooooh, and what's in that tote bag??
Yes, I succumbed and bought a foldable loom from Once a Sheep. I couldn't believe how light it was, and I can't wait to set it up and start weaving. I'm hoping it will be a great stash-buster.
All very special purchases and they will all remind of the fabulous weekend spent in Edinburgh. Can't wait for next year!
