Knitting Guru
You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting
and do it all the time. While finishing a piece
is the plan, you still love the process, and
can't imagine a day going by without giving
some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation
involves leaving ample space for the stash and
supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn
ends and you begin.

Knitting Circle

I would like to start a knitting circle, and I've been thinking about names. A couple I've thought of are "Stitching Bitches", "Naked Knitting", "Chicks with Sticks" (Chicks and Dicks with Sticks, if we get a member [hee hee] of the male persuasion). Anyone else got any ideas?

I know that I can totally host the knitting thing starting in March or so (Burnaby), but Kate and D would probably like it right where they live... so I open the floor. I figure if there isn't a knitting group in the next three months, I'll be organizing it. Besides, I'll be right out by Peechie and pretty close to no name yet. :) (Neither of whom have expressed interest in a knitting group, but hey, I'm just like Florida...counting votes 'creatively' ;) )

Don't Hate Me!

Look what I've got.

A bunch of it got really tangled at work today, and since they were going to throw it away, I got to take it home with me. I don't know how much I have, but there's at least four or five different colours, and probably eight or ten balls.

Purchasing Online

I wonder if I'd ever be able to buy yarn from online? I suppose if it was something I knew Boa, or Fun Fur, or something like that. But so much of yarn shopping for me is tactile. First, the colour catches my eye, but then I have a need to pet it. I've been known to surreptitously (and not so much) pet the yarn that comes through my till.

Would you ever buy yarn online?

Worthwhile investment.

The five bucks or so that I spent on the yarn to make my stripy toque and scarf are probably the best $5 I have spent in ages. Not only did they keep me busy during various times (bus rides, hospital stays) but they look fabulous and I wear them ALL THE TIME.
