Gather round knitties and knotties for some events that are coming in 2009 and hopefully, near you. Your knitting and crocheting knowledge can grow by leaps and bounds by attending, meeting, and networking with all the hardworking people involved in these events. You will come away with so much inspiration, and yes, maybe more yarn for the stash, but participating can really give your projects that extra zing! I encourage you to make the trek, leave the kids with hubby or loving grandma and hit the road with fellow knitties. Check with your neighborhood yarn store to see if they are going or a group of you can carpool together - GREAT community, great for the environment and the wallet, afterall, you're going to need some extra cookies for that special yarnie item that you can't walk away from.
I will be posting more events in the future and if there is one near you that I haven't mentioned, please comment or email me and I will include it. Your knitty neighbors, who may not be aware, will HRT you big time.
FIRST THERE WAS THE TWILIGHT ZONE, THEN THE PADGENT ZONE, BRACE YOURSELF FOR THE KNIT/CROCHET ZONE!
Some more news for you - I loved being interviewed by Christine of CrochetCafe last month so I have decided to give it a whirl. I will be doing a few intereviews on this blog that I think will inspire and motivate you as well as give you a sneak peek into the life of the Knitted. Stay tuned for the first installment of the Knit/Crochet Zone.
Mark your calendars for an event near you in 2009!
