I must have had a lot of time before the internet came into widespread usage, as I certainly spend a lot of time at the computer now. There is so much going on, that I don't know how I'll ever manage to keep up! So that people aren't overwhelmed, I'll add some of recent news.
ellI did find a copy of The Knitter, issue 70, but just in time to get an email from the publisher that Issue 71 is now available in the U.K. I haven't had the time to read this issue thoroughly, however I wasn't surprised to see an article entitled "Take a trip to Shetland". It's good to see this special place getting the attention it deserves.
I hope that anyone who would like to join us in July, will come on the 16th Scottish Skeins and Skerries Tour. We have several places left-- don't miss out as the tour will not be offered next year. The trip information is on my website: www.joycejamestours.com.
I received an email from Marsha White of the Needle Arts Book Shop. www.Needle Arts Book Shop.com In addition to the wide variety of books which she stocks, Marsha has started a virtual knitting museum, http://www.knittingmuseum.com/ It's a beautiful site and well worth spending the time to read thoroughly.
Andy Ross of Yell is still as busy as ever. There was a lot of news in his most recent post, but the one which caught my eye was about a post open for a Knitter in Residence at Glasgow University. www.globalyell.org.
