In the Loop 3 Conference, Southampton England

The In the Loop 3 Conference took place earlier this month in Southampton, England. The conference is held every other year. As I mentioned in an earlier post, it's been an event which I would liked to have attended. Maybe in 2014.

The list of speakers was extensive and it would have been a treat to have heard them. http://www.southampton.ac.uk/intheloop/documents/intheloop3prog.pdf. Several familiar names from Shetland spoke and I see the keynote speaker was Carol Christiansen (curator of the Shetland Museum). Carol's talk was entitled: "The Best of British: Knitwear used by Polar and Himalayan explorers". Friends who we meet on our Scottish Skeins tours, Wilma Malcolmson and Hazel Tindall were also active participants.

Hard to believe that a month from now, I'll be back from Shetland Wool Week. I'll try to take photos and post throughout the event. It's going to be fun!

What and where is Shetland Wool Week? Maybe I will need to look at prior posts to "catch up".
