Knitting fulfils a basic need for me to be warmer than average…so I suppose I am lucky to live in a cool climate ;-) Edinburgh requires hand knits, happily.
I’ve been knitting for years, but only seriously for the past decade or so. I’m drawn by the textures and colours, and the meditative rhythms.
I’m also part of the team which organises the excellent Edinburgh Yarn Festival (next outing 18/19th March 2016!) which is really the ultimate exercise in finding yarn to squish.
I’m on Twitter @bluebluegrey, feel free to contact me there.
