More news from the U.K.

I read on the I Knit London 28 January newsletter that Nike shoes has introduced a trainer with a knitted top. 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.

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.

What a great review of the Shetland book. I am so fortunate to have a copy.
