This trip has been in the works since before Sock Summit ’09 — aka more than a year. And finally, it’s almost here!
It’s the brainchild of my friend, Craftlit host, Heather Ordover. I almost fell off my chair when she asked if I would be her co-host! It’s extra-exciting for me, because this trip also coincides with hub’s and my 20th anniversary and he’s coming with me. Yes, twenty years. Insane. [There are rumors we were married in the womb. I will neither confirm nor deny.]
Anyway, I’m not posting this to brag about the trip. I’m excited because our brilliant [and super-professional] tour organizer, Dianne, has given us two opportunities to have meetups with UK readers and listeners while we’re there!
@ I Knit London, Sunday, October 3 from 3-4pm
@ Rummer Tavern, Wednesday, Oct 6, from 7-9pm
If you can make it, please do! I’ll have Knitty shwag with me, and both Heather and I are really excited to meet all of you!
Are these ticketed events or can we just turn up?
You are welcome to just show up!
i might be there!
i’m actually FROM toronto, but i’ve never been able to make it to a knitty event! i’m here in london for school for a few months, and if i can manage it, i’ll see you at iknit! 🙂
Darn, I’m just going to miss you. We are in London Sept. 30-Oct. 2 and then to Paris through the 8th. Hope you have a great time and Happy Anniversary!!
Aw man, I’ll be there a day too late! Shucks!
Ooooohâ€¦ I live in Bath (but it looks like you’re just doing a very flying visit through Bath, possibly because it’s the most expensive place in Britain to stay the night), but might be able to make the Cardiff one, it’s not that farâ€¦
So exciting! If there are no more details on Bath, I will try to make the Cardiff one. It’s not too far from me!
Yup, as far as I know, Bath is a way-station on the way to Cardiff. We’ll spend a good part of the day there, but then will be on to Cardiff.
Do come out and see us there!
I can’t wait! I’ve been a long-time listener of Craftlit and a long-time follower of Knitty for years. It’ll be lovely to meet both of you in person!
