This week I am eagerly anticipating my upcoming trip to Unwind Brighton, I have classes booked with Bristol Ivy, Ann Kingstone and Amy Singer and I can't wait! These are just a few of the incredibly talented designers who are all converging on Brighton for what promises to be a stupendous adventure in yarn and knitting! If you're going along to Unwind and you see me stalking all the beautiful yarn in the marketplace or at the Seaside Shindig hosted by the lovely girls from Pom Pom Magazine, do come and say Hi - I'm always thrilled to meet fellow knitters. And while I'm talking about the marketplace (link here to see the full list of amazing vendors) . . it looks fantabulous. I'm going to find it very hard not to come home with a boot full of new yarn . . .
Thinking about Unwind has reminded me about the other knitty trips I have planned this year with The Knitting Hut which is starting to look like a bit of a grand tour:
We start with The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace (19th - 21st September)
swiftly followed by a trip up the M1 to Yarndale in Skipton (27 & 28th September)
a few days respite and then a mega five days at The Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace (8th - 12th October)
I may be flagging slightly by then so if you are coming please bring chocolate! Having said that I'm really excited just to have the opportunity to exhibit at two new shows this year, and I will be bringing along some brand new kits - but more about that very soon!http://unwindbrighton.blogspot.co.uk/
