Middle Earth Knitting Weekend Coming Up!

Calling all Kiwi and Aussie knitting blokes! I just heard on David Reidy's "Sticks & String" podcast about the New Zealand Knitters' Weekend on 15-17 June in Wellington on the North Island. It is sponsored by KnitWorld (a chain of yarn shops) and it sounds like a lot of fun. There will be celebrity speakers, workshops, competitions, stash-trading, charity knitting, Stitch 'n' Bitch along with a special 3 hour session just for blokes called "Knitting With Testosterone", led by James Herbison of the FiberAlive blog fame. The costs are very reasonable and I, for one, intend to be there. Here is the link:

Since it's so inexpensive for Aussies to fly to New Zealand, maybe some of you guys from Oz will come over and join us? I'm keen to meet other men who knit and wouldn't it be cool to actually meet some of the MWK regulars!

If I can ever possibly figure out how to post an event for June on MWK, I'll do that. I can't suss how to move forward in the calendar. Anyone know how?

If you use "create content"

If you use "create content" and then "event" you can put in whatever day and month you want for beginning and ending dates.

and if you change the view on the "event" page to "table" it shows from current date for a month. Odd that there are "back" buttons on the calander but no "forward" button.

MMario - Can anybody tell me what year it is?

Thanks, Mario; I appreciate your assistance. Now, I've posted it twice! I see computers and I are still on unfriendly terms. Jesse
