Did you see it yesterday? The bit in the Times?! Of all the things I thought I’d be in the paper for – robbery (of wool), arson (no wool left), mutiny (“knitters unite to overthrow unsheeply government”) or maybe my piano playing (“pianist in woolly one-piece faints during rectial”) – I wasn’t really expecting such good publicity 😀
The sock wants to be in the paper too
If you’re curious, you can have a proper look at the whole thing here. You’ll have to squint but I think it’s readable.
Did everyone have a good time yesterday during World Wide Knit In Public Day? I didn’t have time to drop into the festivities in the city centre but you can read about them here. By all accounts, a great time was had by all. Since I knit in public nearly every day anyway, I wasn’t really into the urgency of the event, but I didn’t want to let the day pass unmarked. So I cast on for a new project!
Humble beginnings of Orangina
I’m not sure if it is safe for me to knit lace right now. The pattern has a four row repeat – two of which are purl rows – and I still got hopelessly lost in the second repeat. Usually I can figure it out pretty quickly and just tink back to correct it. Not this time. I ripped it out and managed to re-cast on the wrong number of stitches. I got going eventually though. Sheesh.
Lastly, you may or may not have heard, but KnitCast is back. Marie Irshad started one of the very first knitting podcasts back in the day and I have missed her cheery interviews during her hiatus. How kind of her to return just when I’ll have finished my exams! Happy days!
