Style Focus: William Street and the west end, Edinburgh

I always think of the west end of Edinburgh in terms of seasons - drinkers spilling out onto the pavement on a sunny day in William Street, and Christmas shopping as the nights draw in, the mulled wine scent of candles in Studio One and shops lit up with fairy lights.

Wool you be there? Scottish company hosts knitting workshops at Games

Scottish knit company Eribé, nominated for a 2014 Scottish Fashion Award as exporter of the Year, is hosting creative hand-knitting workshops over the weekend in the Shed Zone in Glasgow Green. These include urban knitting sessions - a form of street art where people create colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn to brighten up public spaces. Scottish knitters will be getting involved including Ginger Twist Studio and Town Mouse Knitting Club, both based in Edinburgh.

The company came up with an innovative waterproof fabric and a range of trenchcoats and parkas, with hoods, pockets, toggles and other practical features to protect against wind and rain.
