Today I met up with a few fellow knitters for a trip to Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Yarn which is run by the Yarn Cake there.
As it was an early start, the normally bustling street where I caught my bus was eerily quiet.
After a train trip that seemed over in no time and a short cab ride we found ourselves at the Charles Rennie Macintosh Church at Queen’s Cross. A fairly humble looking building…
…until you take a closer look at the detailing.
Inside the market hall were a number of suppliers, including among others…
A Peppermint Penguin selling project bags and cards
The Yarn Yard with all those gorgeous colours and tatting threads too
Old Maiden Aunt – sorry about the blur there!
I stole the next pic of Old Maiden Aunt from @yarnpony which is so much better than mine!
After a close inspection of the stalls, @yarnpony and S settle in for some knitting and spinning…
…while V showed off her “Boobie Socks”…
…and L preferred to do some photo bombing. (second 2 photos by @yarnpony)
Meanwhile, in the main hall of the church the Yarn Cake’s own stall was in full swing under that amazing window.
In the end I was most restrained and this is all I came away with.
After the main event we all piled into a cab back into town where this sad looking empty building made me laugh
And then I found heaven!
or so I thought, for “wool” read “plastic” and “footwear” read “slut or granny options only”, still the idea of combining the two is utter genius!
All in all a good day, must do it again soon!
