I read on the I Knit London 28 January newsletter that Nike shoes has introduced a trainer with a knitted top. www.iknit.org.uk. They are to be formally announced in early February at the I Knit London shop and are called 'Nike Flyknit Trainers'.
On the Visit Scotland website I learned of a project called the Diaspora Tapestry. This was news to me but apparently it was started in 2012. It is scheduled to be completed in 2014, the Year of Homecoming Scotland. http://www.scottishdiasporatapestry.org/index.
I follow Kate Davies's blog, but obviously not often enough--although eventually I do make sure I get caught up. Hazel Tindall, of the Shetland Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers, brought Kate's review of the book A Legacy of Shetland Lace to my attention. (Thanks Hazel) Be sure to read's Kate's assessment of the book.
