A horrendously boring 2-hour wait in a nearly-closed airport (the duty free shops even closed at midnight) and a 7-hour flight later, I’m here in Edinburgh! Ysolda’s a great hostess – and she’s got a fantastic flat. The delay on the flight actually put me on a pretty good schedule, because I slept a few hours, woke up, and landed in the middle of the day here (and was tired enough to go to bed at a reasonable time in the evening).

Yesterday we went for a decent length walk around, I took photos like the tourist I am, especially of the buildings and curvy streets!


Today we did some errands, went to a gallery (had lunch there too, which was really yummy) and went to the yarn store where Ysolda works, k1. I of course bought some pretty yarn – sock yarn from Old Maiden Aunt and merino/silk laceweight from Fyberspates.

edinburgh yarn!

And shoes! Yes, we bought the same shoes again (in different colours).

new shoes!

We’re off to London on Thursday!

    i can recommend Loop (in Islington on cross street, i think) as a nice, small yarn shop. also Liberty in Soho and John Lewis on Oxford street have nice wool selections for department stores.

    if you’re out in the pubs tomorrow night, might cross paths with you. ;)
    have a lovely visit!
