If you knit or spin chances are you’ll already be counting the hours until Knit Nation 2011 kicks off. If you have no idea what Knit Nation is then where on earth have you been?
Knit Nation is a “knitting and spinning extravaganza” taking place from July 15-17th at Imperial College London’s South Kensington Campus (with a special Marketplace Preview tomorrow from 5pm). There will be classes galore and there are still some places for workshops. Check out the list of teachers whose knowledge you can squish into your brain:
