Knit News

Hello, crafters!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I had a great adventure on Saturday: I participated in my first ever TTC Knitalong.

The organizers did a great job setting up the routes, figuring out the teams, making tote bags and badges (above) and wrangling all the knitters (50 all told!) on our city-wide shop hop.

Tina and I were on Team East, starting at The Naked Sheep* and moving gradually toward the centre of the city, to The Purple Purl, Lettuce Knit, Americo and Romni Wools. Every time we hopped aboard a streetcar the needles came out and the knitting began. It was a great day.

*One last thing: Lisa at The Naked Sheep asked me to share this exciting news with you:

An exciting celebrity guest will be visiting our store this Wednesday and Thursday! Annie Modesitt will be at the Sheep June 10 and 11. She’ll be teaching classes in Combination Knitting and Modular Knitting. Each class is $60, or take two classes for just $100. There are only 5 spots left in each of the classes, so sign up soon! (Call 416-691-6320 for more details and to sign up.)

What did you folks get up to?
