This interactive map allows you to search for LYS in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. It is very cool.
One place I have been is Shilasdair on the Isle of Skye. In December, now extended through January), Shilasdair was doing a residency at Stash in London demonstrating dying etc. If you have seen any of the British knitting magazines, Stash ads mention the Shilasdair residency.
In 2002, I visited Shilasdair while spending a few days on Skye. I bought several skeins of their Aran weight in one of the Braes colors - a green. I knit the Aran Pocket Shawl from Folk Shawls.
