UK Knitting/Crochet Events 2016

Here’s a quick round-up of some of the knitting and crochet events taking place across the UK in 2016.  I did a search myself, but I’d also like to give credit to the Knitter’s Review, who do a summary for events across the world.  Click on the name for more information. I’ve only included confirmed events, but I will try to update it as and when new events are announced.
