Thanks to UK Handknitting Association (www.ukhandknitting.com) for featuring us in their August newsletter.
You can also find us listed on their groups page--Northern Loops puts Caithness on the map in a variety of ways!
UK Hand knitting association is very active in supporting and promoting knitting (and crochet). Their web site is a wealth of information from patterns and groups to competitions, including some sponsored in partnership with WI.
Of particular interest to me for Northern Loops are these three things: national effort to establish knit clubs in every school, celebrations of Wool week (September 5-11), and volunteers to teach knitting at events such as SECC in Glasgow through their Knit 1 program.
As we often find, news and events cluster more often down south than up here, we have already shown that we have the talent and the crafters to put Caithness on the map!
