Daily Photo: Festivals 4

Part of the Daily Photo series of photos taken and curated by Jeni Reid especially for WOVEMBER. For the WEARING WOOL phase of WOVEMBER we are delving into the joy of WOOL FESTIVALS – surely some of the best places to see WOOL being worn, and also some of the best places to see how we collectively wear WOOL as a cultural meeting point!

This is just a small selection of the sights I saw when attending festivals over 2015. I went to Edinburgh Yarn Festival, Woolfest in Cumbria, Shetland Wool Week and the In the Loop conference. Other festivals are available and I hope to go to all of them one day.

The Whalsay Bairns – incredibly talented young knitters from Shetland, seen here during Wool Week. The Peerie Makkers are currently crowdfunding in order to be able to teach even more children in Shetland about knitting.

  1. This was one of my favourite pictures that I saw from Shetland Wool week, I love everything about it, how the girls are all wearing beautiful knits (that blue and cream one is just stunning) and how two of the m seem to be able to chat and knit at the same time..mostly it’s the little girl with the needles near as big as her which owns my heart, and the massive waddle of knitting on her lap, I’d love to know what she’s knitting.
