I was waiting to post this until I had a 'haul' shot, but it looks like I am never going to get around to taking that photo, so here is a bunch of photos from the weekend in advance of that! You can tell the story from the images, pretty much. I knit loads of … Continue reading Edinburgh Yarn Festival!
We were so excited to go here! I was in Hendersons once before, on a trip to Edinburgh about 15 years ago now. It had a very Cornucopia-style vibe to it - that type of vegetarian café that had been going since the 1980s, and was an absolute establishment in the city. They've opened a … Continue reading Hendersons of Edinburgh: The Vegan Restaurant
It didn't matter that we were in Edinburgh. I had heard that Milanos/ Pizza Express (same restaurant, just different names in different countries apparently) were now offering a vegan pizza. I mean, any pizza without cheese and meat is a vegan pizza, but it is always exciting to see a cheese-based restaurant offer a dairyfree … Continue reading Vegan Dinner in Edinburgh – New Pizza Express/ Milanos Vegan Pizza!

We stayed in the Morningside area, so this café was no too far away (see … Continue reading Vegan Lunch in Edinburgh

Also, I am learning too. I actually didn't know the specific differences between an insect and an arachnid before, … Continue reading Toucan Bugs!
Finally, finally, Costa have some vegan snacks in. So many times I've gone there for something with family or friends, and settled for a small soya-milk cappacino (4sp) (okay, it was always delicious, so I'm not sure 'settled' is the right term there). But now I can have cookies too! Better latte than never. These … Continue reading Vegan in Costa – Finally!
Love this pattern! So much! This is not my first Stripe Study Shawl. I made one a good few years ago now, when I was following a plant-based diet rather than lifestyle. I knit it in Hedgehog Fibres Sock, and I loved it so much. It was a great knit, a great wear, and I … Continue reading Freshly Cast On!
