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 eight or so. I’m drawn by the textures and colours, and the meditative rhythms.
I’m also part of the team which organises the Edinburgh Yarn Festival (next outing to be announced!) which is really the ultimate exercise in finding yarn to squish.
I’m on Twitter @bluebluegrey, feel free to contact me there or to leave a comment on the blog.
