Autumn has arrived at Loch Ness and as I cosy up with my latest project I can't help but dream of yarn travels. One of the things I really enjoy in conversations with our summer visitors is getting recommendations for festivals and shops to see on my own travels.
Here are some ideas I have so far, but I'd love to hear your suggestions.
This has been on the wishlist for a few years and I've got so close to going. I want to combine it with a larger Nordic exploration trip, so I'm open to ideas for how to extend this.
This is one that I should have been to already because it is very close to me. The timing never works for me to go in person but I always love following along online.
I have been a few times. The location and the timing work perfectly for me. I combine this with catching up with friends who live nearby and the whole weekend is a delight. Aside from the yarn my annual afternoon in the local cat cafe is the best!
This is a brand new festival and I'm so excited to see how it goes. So far the information has been spot on and it looks like there is a great selection of authentic vendors.
A selection of authentic quality indie yarn plus some of Glasgow's finest historical architecture. This festival ticks my boxes in so many ways. Being based in the Highlands its a long journey for visits from friends but Glasgow has good transport links that allows us to kind of meet in the middle. 3 hours train time to knit is just an added bonus!
I'd love to hear which festival you have enjoyed and which are on your wish list.
