I hope you’ve got your tickets booked, your yarn budget at the ready and your elbows sharpened for the Wollmeise stand – Knit Nation is this weekend!
The Sheep and I will be there tomorrow evening for the market preview, so please do stop and say hello to the slightly crazed person waving a microphone.
I’ve spent a lovely afternoon having tea with the fabulous Alice and Cookie who’ve organised the whole thing, and the wonderful knitters who will be teaching the classes. Plus the talented Ysolda Teague who will have a stand in the market, and Casey and Jess from Ravelry who will be giving a talk on the Friday night.
I confess I was a little star-struck by so many knitting legends at one table, but they were all lovely.
From the tea flavoured with pear and caramel, to the delicate finger sandwiches, to the scones with clotted cream, the cakes and a glass of champagne, it was an afternoon of decadent delights, in excellent company, and my thanks to Alice and Cookie for inviting me along.
Now I can’t wait to enjoy Knit Nation itself, and hopefully speak to them all for the podcast over the course of the weekend!
If you use Twitter, you can use the hashtag #knitnation to keep up with who else is going, hear about classes and events, and no doubt share the joy of yarn purchases.
