  1. It was lovely to meet you in Edinburgh, Helen. Thanks for the mention. As always a lovely podcast. The one yarn I regret not buying in Edinburgh was Snail Yarn. I liked her gradients as well as the full skeins. I have been browsing the website since then and I’m sure I’ll fall down that rabbit hole eventually.
