Knit In Japan

It’s Day 4 of the Online International Fiber Festival (OIFF) and today’s journey takes you to Japan. Each day of the festival, let your guide Anne Frost of the I Thought I Knew How knitting podcast introduce you to eight different regions around the world. Meet local makers, take a themed class from Craftsy, and learn about the area through educational videos. There are even recipes suggestions to make yourself a cultural dinner. The OIFF runs for 9 days, yet all itineraries are online for you to explore.
