UPDATED UK knitting events 2016

A few months is a short time in the knitting world and almost as soon as I publish my list of the big events for the year, there are changes aplenty.  I was waiting on confirmation of one new event in particular, so this update list is now ready to go!

I’m particularly pleased to announce that there is in fact going to be a major yarn show in central London this year.  After the I Knit Fandango was cancelled, there was a massive gap for a London-based event to take place.  Coming up in November is the shiny new Yarnporium, organised by the Yarn in the City team.  That’s one to look forward to.

Here you go…
