Handmade in the UK…

Yesterday was one of the hottest days of the year in Edinburgh, and what does a girl do on an evening of a day like this? Go to yarn-store for a book-launch of course!
You know you are an obsessed with yarn if even our current heatwave will not prevent you from fondling wool. For the benefit of my North American friends, we don’t do air cons here. Hot means hot everywhere.

Emily Wessel launched the release of the print-version of Handmade in the UK  yesterday at Kathy’s Knits in Edinburgh and it was a great turn-out, even though it was so hot.

I got myself a signed copy of Pacific Knits (by Tin Can Knits, a transatlantic design partnership of which Emily is one half ) which was also on offer. That Antler cardigan is calling to me already. Off to buy ice-cream now…

The book-launch coincided with the 1st anniversary of Kathy’s Knits opening doors and this was the celebatory cake. What more could a girl ask for?
