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 http://www.knittingforums.co.uk, to Phoenix knitting forums at http://www.knittingforums.org.uk/. 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! :)
