Team Yarningham visit EYF

Last weekend Helen and I took a train to visit Edinburgh Yarn Festival.  The festival, now in it’s 5th year was bigger than ever.  This was our second visit to the festival and we had a great time.  Here are a few pictures from our trip.

Edinburgh Yarn Festival

Team Yarningham (Helen and I) spent a couple of days last week in Edinburgh to visit Edinburgh Yarn Festival. The trip was a chance for us to meet up with exhibitors, experience another urban yarn festival and get to see and squish lots and lots of lovely yarn.

Here are a few photos from our trip

My very reserved purchases from EYF.  A project pouch by Danica from Kettle Yarn and some bulb safety pins by Merchant and Mills from Grace at Beyond Measure.

In all we had a great time in Edinburgh.  EYF is a great festival.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many stitchers in one place!
