We were invited along to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival at the Corn Exchange today.

The festival was so much bigger than I had imagined, with hundreds of vendors from around the world selling yarn, patterns and everything a knitter could dream of.

With wooly inspiration everywhere, the urge to start stitching was quite overwhelming, but luckily there were workshops and demonstrations to keep our hands busy.

Spin City were giving demonstrations of their handmade drop spindles which came in gorgeous designs and looked so much fun to use.

There were also so many pattern designers, famous stitchers and experts on hand, making it the perfect opportunity to meet your heroes and get your favourite books signed.
