A new year for knitters means a new list of yarns to try, new techniques to master and new patterns to knit. What could be better for inspiration and yarn fumes than a yarn show? The calendar below covers all of the shows I am aware of in England, Scotland and Ireland.
If you know of a show I have missed please drop me an email or comment and let me know.
I've also created a handy downloadable calendar of shows for the year!
