Saturday stands out as one of the best days of the year so far.

A morning filled with the Woolfish Wool Festival at St Abbs where I met Natalie from the Yarn Yard, the Bordertart and many other s that I’ve only ever heard of or spoke to through Ravelry.

After I bought the cutest little felted Alpaca from Cairndinnis Alpacas and a Diddy Niddy Noddy we left and headed north to The Haddington Spinners Open Day.

I’ve never seen so many spinning wheels in one room before, the most I’ve ever seen is erm…? one…! mine! lol ๐Ÿ˜€ ScottishFibres were there with their stall and I wanted to buy the new Ashford book of Dyeing plus they had another diddy niddy noddy which I wanted to buy but I didn’t have enough pennies on me so I’ll have to be patient til the next time I see them.

All in all it was a fibery, yarnish, tactile, squooshy, amazing Saturday that will tide me over til WoolFest in June…. I’m counting the days and keeping my eyes and ears open for other opportunities to get my fibre fix.

Next on the calendar… the Edinburgh Spinners Guild met on the 21st May ๐Ÿ˜€
