Episode 5 Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2016

After a brief life and technology-induced hiatus, we’re back and recounting the fun we had at this year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival, and joined by yarn festival first-timer, Heather.

There’s our usual mini drinks reviewing (guess which one of us forgot to bring a drink along?!), chat about what we have on and off our needles, followed by oodles of happy EYF chat. What did we squish? What did we covet? Who did we meet? What will we do with all of our purchases? Listen in to find out!

Huge thank you to Amanda (aka OwlPrintPanda) for ferrying us across on Saturday, and to Jo and Mica for organising such an amazing event!
