Here’s a quick round-up of some of the knitting and crochet events taking place across the UK in 2018.  Click on the name for more information.  I haven’t managed to do as extensive a search as I normally do, but I’ll do that as soon as I get a chance and update it. In the meantime, these are the events that are scheduled at the moment.
