2013 knitting events

It’s January, and it’s been snowing for days – perfect knitting weather!  I hope you’re all suitably rugged up in knitwear.  I feel rather smug heading out in my hand-knit woollens to keep me warm!
I think it’s shaping up to be another great year for knitting events in the UK.  Here’s my annual round-up of the big knitting/woolly events that are coming up, and in chronological order, so you can plan your year:
