Glasgow University yarn bomb in Sanquhar knititng.
Mary Biggar – outside Glasgow University Hillend 17th Oct.
Was at The Glasgow School of Yarn yesterday. They hold it in a Charles Rennie Macintosh designed church which is so inspiring as you can see I failed to take any pictures of the actual yarn festival!! Here are some from last year. It was a beautiful day with Glasgow putting its best autumnal face forward! I must go back soon.
In which we conquer lace (sort of) 3 hours effort in Emily (of Tin Can Knits) class. I used stitch markers! I undid a lot of knitting! I did things which made HOLES! And most astonishing of all I visited Glasgow AND IT DIDN’T RAIN!! One of my fellow Granny Greeners conquered the Mighty Granny Square and another SPUN YARN. Much yarn was bought.
I adore the knitted bikini and the wooly dogs… Teddies for Tragedies aims to give a bit of cheer to children in terrible situations Knit–a-square in South Africa supporting Aids orphans takes the ones my mother knits. The shops in South Queensferry make a big effort with their window displays during their summer fair. Lots of them have models of the Forth Road Bridge as it turns 50 years old this year.
