Happy new year everyone! I hope your 2018 is off to a good start. For me the new year always means planning my yarn shows for the year, and putting together my annual blog post of the main shows around the UK.
The first show for the year is Waltham Abbey on January 21st, and this year I’m excited to be going as a vendor for the first time. From all accounts I hear it’s a really nice, friendly event, and every time I’ve met the organisers they have been wonderful. I’m looking forward to catching up with lots of local knitters.
I’m also going to be at the wonderful Edinburgh Yarn Fest again in March this year… it’s definitely not too soon to get excited!
(I’m also heading international this year as a vendor for the first time, so I’ll be posting more details about that, along with a little list of yarn shows in Europe. Hit me up with recommendations!)
