A bloggy meetup, and a forum move

link to bloggy meetup

Look what Lucy Locket has been arranging - a bloggy meetup on the 8th April, at an open farm, south of Oxford. It should be a fun day out in the Easter Holidays.

The other thing of note is the mass exodus from the Angel Yarns knitting forum at, to Phoenix knitting forums at The full story is a bit muddled, and probably the best place to get the back story is in the angel/phoenix forum on ravelry. I'm not going to speculate on motives etc, but it seems to me that a load of kerfuffle could have been avoided with a bit more communication.

Wow, that looks fun. Too bad I'm nowhere near Oxford, or the UK for that matter!

Hi :) Regarding the forum move - basically the Angel Yarns forum disappeared without warning one day and after being told by its admin that it was not going to return, we set up a replacement home to chat. We're always happy to welcome new people! :)
