Are you free this weekend? If so, you should venture to the Mackintosh Church on Friday or Saturday. You might just find some lovely yarny goodness hidden away in a brilliant Mackintosh building, at the Glasgow School of Yarn.
The marketplace will include some lovely vendors, including Abstract Cat, Peppermint Penguin, Debonnaire, Easyknits, Ginger Twist Studio, Knit Wild, Lucy Hague Designs, Strathearn Fleece & FIbre, Susan Sharpe Ceramics & Wood Ewe.
Tutors include Rachel Coopey, who makes some gorgeous socks. Some of them are next on my list of SOCKtober patterns, and I'm really looking forward to casting them on! Jon Dunn-Ballam of Easyknits, who makes some gorgeous yarn - my favourite are his sushi rolls, which I may have gotten rather attached to at Yarndale. Emily Wessel of Tin Can Knits, who makes some truly lovely patterns - the Tin Can Knits Lush pattern was used for the recent KAL which was organised by a few of the british podcasters. I used fyberspates for mine, and it was YUMMY :)
There's also a stall from p/hop, which stands for pennies per hour of pleasure. It's a charity which enables knitters to donate for a pattern, which in turn has been donated for sale by the designer to p/hop. Proceeds are then sent directly to Medecins Sans Frontieres.
Looks like it'll be good :)
