Edinburgh Yarn Festival // March 2019 // Yarnspotting Countess Ablaze

Choose yarn.
Choose a stitch.
Choose a size.
Choose a project,

Choose a fkn big project
Choose brioche stitches, fades,
Mindless stockinette, and electrical yarn winders.
Choose to remodel your house entirely based on yarn storage solutions.

And fancy fkn project bags.
Choose fixed-circular posho needles.
Choose a starter kit.
Choose your Rav friends.

Choose a fussy fkn cable motif, 
Choose toe up two at a time in 6 colours and bang your heid against it for hours until you throw the tangled shite against the wall.
Choose your skeins and wonder who you

Are on a Sunday morning.
Choose sitting on that couch knitting mind-numbing
Shawls made out of fkn angel’s tears so fkn fancy you have to keep it in a fkn safe

Choose sitting at home when you could be elsewhere,
Buying yarn from dyers at Edinburgh
Who've flown in from around the world to give you their best

You have chosen to attend yourself.
Choose your project. Choose EYF.

The rumours are true; we are exhibiting at Edinburgh Yarn Festival in March 2019! No this does not mean that we are joining the show circuit but one show a year won't hurt. I'll be bringing Blazin'Squad and if you're lucky, some yarn. We're even getting the Yarnspotting logo made on show exclusive enamel pins. See you there!
