I hade a wonderful time in Glasgow/Edinburgh. This time I travelled with my friend and fellow knitter, Carin. The main reason for this trip was to celebrate Carin's 40th b-day. And we celebrated in style. On the big day we had afternoon tea at Willow Tea rooms.
This was a great way to celebrate. We had a table in the Room Deluxe and it was not a busy day at the Willow, so we basically had the room to ourself.
After this mega meal - we started our yarn tour of Glasgow. We took the tube to Hillhead and walked to Great Western Road and the store The Life Craft. Here I bought some sock yarn - Colorimetry Swoony sock.
The second store we visited was the Yarn Cake on Queen Margaret Drive. We had learned on Ravelry there was a knitting café this evening, so we wanted to attend. And we did. It was a really lovely evening meeting some great knitting ladies.
