#EYF2017

It's been a week since I went to the Edinburgh Yarn festival with Sandra and I'm still reeling with how awesome it was and what a wonderful time we had. I have been enjoying watching other podcasts about the event too. Here is some footage I took to remember the event and the beautiful city of Edinburgh, hope you enjoy it.



Sandra and I got together to record a joint podcast to show off all our EYF 'souvenirs'. There isn't any making content at all - just a load of yarn adoration!!!


See you soon for an update on all my projects, take care
