The Yarn Cake in Glasgow is a year old this month and to celebrate they’ve organised “The Glasgow School of Yarn” — two days (this Friday and Saturday) of classes, demos, shopping and cake.
I can’t make it to Glasgow for the event itself but I do have an entry in their design competition. Run in conjunction with the Charles Rennie Mackintosh society, the brief was for any designs inspired by the life or works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. After my exam at the start of the month, it was a bit of a rush to get the pattern together and the sample finished, blocked and posted in time but it all came together in the end. (Remind me never to attempt to learn a new technique, design something using said technique and write up and publish the pattern in less than a month.)
You can see (and vote for!) the Hill House Scarf in person at the event or the pattern is now available on Ravelry.

I saw you post on the Rav designers group, and ‘recognized’ you by your ravatar – since I saw that scarf just yesterday! It is a beautiful design among so many beautiful designs that were submitted, I was astounded at how fierce the competition was! Good job you for getting the pattern out so promptly, as well – I still need to polish mine up a bit.
Thank you! I was disappointed to not be able to make it to Glasgow and see the rest of the entries – I’m still hoping someone will post pictures.
