World’s Fastest Knitter title on the line at Craft Yarn Council of America

Hazel Tindall, a member of the Shetland Guild of Spinners, Weavers & Dyers, will compete for the title of the World's Fastest Knitter at 'Knit Out', during the annual meeting of the Craft Yarn Council of America. This competition takes place in Minneapolis at the Mall of America on Saturday, 16 February. Hazel holds the record for the U.K.'s Fastest Knitter. Her speed is 255 stitches in three minutes.

Previous travellers on Scottish Skeins & Skerries Tours will recall meeting Hazel when we visited with members of the Guild.

Don't forget, I'll be taking a knitting tour to Scotland in July. Get more information on my 2008 Scottish Skeins and Skerries tour at this address: or click the links at the upper right corner of this page.
