We are so excited about our Vendor Market! We have some truly amazing vendors who will be selling their wares on Saturday, 31-October-2015.
The Vendor Market will be open in the morning to retreat attendees only.
BUT! Even if you’re unable to attend the entire Geeky Puffin Knit Palooza retreat, you can still shop at the Vendor Market from 1pm to 3pm. The cost for entry is £3 or 1 knit or crocheted item which we’ll donate to charity.
The Vendor Market will be held at The Gillis Centre, 100 Strathearn Rd, Edinburgh EH9, UK.
We wanted to highlight each of our Vendors so you can start planning for everything you want to purchase. We aim to enable!
Rainbow Heirloom is the yarn dyeing business of Emily.
We took a look through Emily's shop and these products look interesting to us! How about you?
We had to pick yarns in our 3 favourite colours. Emily's yarn bases are so scrumptious. Definitely check all of these (and the others we didn't have space to mention) in her shop.
Twinkle Light is a light-fingering weight yarn that is 50% merino and 50% silk.
Sweater is a worsted weight yarn that is 100% merino.
Lush Light is a fingering weight yarn that is 70% alpaca, 20% silk, and 10% cashmere.

Tin Can Knits is the pattern designing duo of Emily and Alexa.
We took a look through Emily and Alexa's designs and picked a few that look interesting to us! How about you?
Fly Away is an adorable blanket that can be modified in so many different ways by changing the layout of the squares. It's on C.C. + Damaris' to knit for a friend list.
Wenlock is a stunning pullover sweater that uses a small amount of contrast colour to create the jaw-dropping collar and yoke detail. It's definitely on our list to knit!
Rosewater is a lovely lacework hat. C.C. can confirm that it's a wonderful knit and it's even better with a pom pom on top!

JavaPurl Designs is the knitting pattern designing business of one of our retreat co-hosts, C.C. Almon. C.C. has designed a special sock pattern to go with one of two exclusive colourways that each retreat attendee gets to choose from. Damaris and Sam really love the patterns below. How about you?
The Lady of Lallybroch Socks
This pattern was inspired by the Outlander book series and tv series. The entire first book (and parts of the others) is set in Scotland, so C.C. designed this sock pattern using a Celtic knot cable with the folded cuff being similar to the top of the socks (kilt hose) that are worn with kilts.
Socks for Ten
C.C. has MANY, MANY, MANY Doctor Who inspired sock patterns. This pattern is inspired by the Tenth Doctor.
Round, Round, Get Around Shawl
This shawl uses a slipped stitch pattern to make round chains. The shawl can be knit in either DK weight yarn or 4-ply/fingering weight yarn.
