Crafting in Odd Places (and a Giveaway!)

UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Last week, while washing my hands in a public washroom (this is how all good stories start, right?) in Toronto's central train station, during rush hour no less, I happened to spot someone crafting. This was no knitting in public situation (not that you'd expect that in a train station bathroom either), but rather a full-on, crouched-down-on-the-floor-near-an-electrical-outlet heat-embossing project. I'm not sure what type of emergency requires one to scatter their stamping gear all over a grimy counter and risk their safety by kneeling behind a constantly opening door, but it must have been something extremely important. I once took my crocheting camping (I was working on a line of dog bow ties at the time, and had some camping buddies to try them out on), but obviously I'm a lightweight. [caption id="attachment_7770" align="aligncenter" width="348" caption="Brantford the pug says all real dogs wear bow ties while camping."] Brantford the pug models his bow tie[/caption] On a barely related note, I've got a copy of Sweat Shop Paris: Lessons From a Sewing Café to give away. It's packed with more than 50 innovative fashion and home design projects (plus recipes for some delectable treats) from the owners of the Sweat Shop, a superhip café-workshop I'd love to visit one day. What better place could there be to sit and knit than a Parisian café, with a fantastic cup of coffee and a plate of macarons?
