TTC Knitalong: 2009

I was going to post today about another FO I managed to reel in this week (long-forgotten Sanqhuar gloves, anyone), but that will have to wait. It is far more important to announce the return of a fantastic Toronto knitting event – the TTC Knitalong! Registration is now open, so visit the TTC Knitalong blog […]

A Toronto sort of afternoon

Yesterday I made the bold move of actually going out into the outside world for the majority of my day, although don’t get me wrong the hibernation way of life is starting to become very easy to keep up. A little too easy, one might say. That is the point when you re-emerge and start […]

The trouble with Monday

…is that it is not the weekend. Knitting-wise, I had a pretty decent Sunday. I went into Toronto with Martha and met up with Lisa, Martina, and her friend Nichole for high tea at the Knit Cafe. We compared our current knitting, fantasy knitting (in my head I will have 3 shawls and 4 socks […]

Sigh

Previously, I had thought that the worst knitterly circumstances one could get into would be to be without knitting altogether. I no longer believe this to be true. The most unfortunate thing for a knitter, is when you settle in for your 45+ minute bus ride at the beginning of your day, remove your knitting […]

What’s in your Altoids tin?

I know that I am not the only knitter who carries a mini knitting kit inside an empty Altoids tin. How do I know this? Because there is an entire discussion thread on Ravelry and now – wait for it – a Ravelry group dedicated to this pursuit. I don’t think knitting minutiae gets more […]

Dee Cee: The Second Part

I’m back again in the land north of the longest unconflicted border in the world, to discover that a) it is snowing, b) apparently the house next door has now had the same water problems as we did a few days ago and our little street is going to go down like dominoes, and c) […]

Local habitat

It’s been a full weekend, and it’s hard to believe it’s coming to an end – luckily I still have tomorrow morning to cling to some bit of NYC touristing (goodness knows yet what form that touristing will take), but there have been some good moments. I’ll update more later but for now I give […]

Reporting from KIP

Knit-in-Public Day dawned with lingering clouds and rain, but as the day grew so did the sunshine and the size of the knitting crowds. I hopped a bus (with knitting and trusty cupcake carrier in tow) to Toronto and arrived at Lettuce Knit a little after 10 when the activities were just getting going. Franklin […]

Knitting takes New York

I am working on some book review notes (somehow I have managed to get backed up and have 4 to do -eek! book reviews ahoy in April), so rest assured this week’s blog content will be filled with more than just New York City things…but I couldn’t resist just one more with some pictures from […]

Inexplicable, Part 2

You know, even though I got up at 6am to get to the airport in time for my flight, I was totally thinking that I wasn’t really that tired. Sure, I’ve pretty much done nothing but walk around Manhattan for 3 days, but that’s not really that tiring, right? Heh. I got back, unpacked, had […]
