Once again I’ve waited too long to post in blog-land. Guess I should have lots to say this time…
I’ve completed another pair of socks, in the previously mentioned Froot Loop pattern. I really like them. So did my Mom. And it is she who wears them :P That’s okay, it keeps me wanting to knit more socks. Unfortunately I must hold and resist the intense urge to cast on for another pair of socks off while I work on a top secret, unbloggable project. I shall reveal this special WIP once it has reached it’s destination. End topic.
So what’s been happening since May? Well our local Stitch ‘n Bitch group have been testing out different outdoor patios for our weekly knit nights; that’s been fun. We also got a group of fibre geeks together and took a field trip out to a sheep farm, where we received a tour of the facilities as well as demonstrations on how wool is made – from the sheep to the skein. We even learned how to spin wool using a drop spindle. (Hmm, do I sense another addiction coming on?) Here’s a shot of us fibre geeks at Sheeples:
And a picture of the wool that came home with me:This past Saturday was World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIP). I hope that wherever you live, if you are a knitter, that you did your part by knitting in public. We held our event on a university campus and a good group of knitters, crochetters and spinners showed up with their WIPs and plenty of food to share.
It’s been a while since I tackled my yarn corner, so today I decided to tidy it up a bit. This is what it looked like before I touched it:
And this is afterwards:Yes that’s right, I basically shoved it all underneath the bench. And attempted to cover it up with a sheet. Works for me!
One more thing before I go… This past week my birthday happened to fall on the same day as the 2nd annual Mayor’s Luncheon for the Arts / Winnipeg Arts Council Awards Show. Our theatre had a table at the luncheon and I was fortunate enough to attend. There were buttons left on each table for us to take home, so I picked out one of each.They’re totally cute. Bye for now!!!!!!!
