Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2018 coincides with the 50th Episode of the Fruity Knitting Podcast. In this Episode we would like to share some of the personalities and some of the atmosphere of the Festival with those who couldn’t be there. If you were fortunate enough to attend, then maybe we can firm up some fond memories.
We have short interviews with a colorful selection of 12 vendors from the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, covering designers, yarn producers, dyers and suppliers of tools and accessories for the knitter. Edinburgh is a beautiful city and well worthy of a visit in itself, and we take you on a tour showing you our highlights. We will also get you in on some of the social events around the Festival. And finally, as it is a yarn festival, Andrea will give you a quick look at the knitting projects that she has planned and the yarns that she bought in Edinburgh for those projects.
We had a brilliant time at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, and we hope we can share some of the fun with you.

Veera Valimaki and Joji Locatelli are both exciting designers in their own right, but they have just released their fifth collaborative collection, Interpretations Volume 5. In Episode 49 we are joined by both Joji and Veera, but we will also be speaking to some of the dyers that they worked with for their latest collection. We’ll be travelling from Patagonia in the south of Argentina to Espoo in Finland, from Aschaffenburg in central Germany to Coaticook in Quebec, Canada. It’s knitting inspiration from around the world!
And back at home in our Offenbach studios there’s a finished garment from Caitlin Hunter, a tutorial on shoulder shaping, and a wanderer returned from Australia, with a little furry footage to enjoy. Come along for the ride!

The Queen will formally open the fifth session of the Scottish Parliament tomorrow as part of a day of celebrations.
At around 10am the crown of Scotland will be transported down the Royal Mile from Edinburgh Castle to the Parliament accompanied by the 3SCOTS (Black Watch) pipes and drums.
The Queen will address the Parliament at 11am as part of a formal opening ceremony, which will be followed by a riding procession on the Royal Mile.
The bloke in the back of the car with the crown is none other than Alexander Douglas Hamilton – the 16th Duke of Hamilton

Formerly head designer at Rowan Yarns, Marie Wallin has based her latest designs on Jamieson’s of Shetland yarn Spindrift, with inspiration taken from the many islands of the Shetland group. Tori Seierstad from Lillehammer, Norway, is our guest on Knitters of the World, and she shares her own beautiful Fair Isle designs. We take a look at Shetland Tweed with weaver and textile historian Andy Ross from Global Yell.
