An event to put on your calendar for 2010 is the U.K. Knit Camp, which will be held at the University of Stirling in Scotland from the 09 to 13 August. The details are in the planning stage but it promises to be a special get together of and for knitters.
An international group of talented tutors have been booked and space reserved at the university, which is ideally suited for a gathering of this kind. There is ample onsite accommodation, meeting rooms and recreational facilities. A number of other activities have been planned: yoga, whisky tasting, a ceilidh, dinner with the tutors. As long as a minimum number of children are registered, there will even be a Kids' Camp, offering child care for those from 6 months to 12 years.
Saturday, 14 August will be U.K. Ravelry Day at the same site--a good reason to stay on.
Have a look at their website to get an idea of the plans: http://www.britishyarn.org.uk/
