Presents

I’ve been knitting folks! But, everything I’ve knit lately has been a present so I haven’t been able to post them in timely fashion. Here’s the recent roster:

Birthday scarf for Miss B

The Pattern: Scarf for Ally by Julie Theaker

The Needles: US 10s

The Yarn: Filatura di Crossa, Golden Line Superior (Cashmere/Silk)

The Verdict: I love this little lacy scarf and I hope the recipient does too! It was a quick knit and the perfect airy scarf for someone who’s living in California.

Silky Scarf for Miss P

The Pattern: Lace Ribbon Scarf from Knitty

The Needles: US 3

The Yarn: Fiesta La Luz Multi (silk) in Burnished Red

The Verdict: I had these skeins in the stash for a while and was just waiting for something good to make with pure silk. I had also heard that this pattern was difficult to knit, but I found it an easy, fun knit and I really love the way it turn out. Hopefully the recipient will feel the same way! 🙂 And it will make a great accessory to the basic black wardrobe (yes she’s a former co-worker!)

Still more on the needles… pictures to come after they’re gifted!

    Hi~I just wanted to invite your group to our upcoming event… Eclectics is an artist co-op here in Kansas City, in addition to our normal mediums most of our members knit.
    We encourage our customers to be CREATIVE and in that spirit we are hosting our first World Wide Knit In Public Day event.
    Here is a bit about the event from the founder Danielle Landes: “World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005 by Danielle Landes. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy each other’s company. Knitting is such a solitary act that it’s easy to knit alone somewhere and sink into your work without thinking about all the other knitters out there. Neighbors could spend all their lives never knowing that the other knits.
    This a specific day to get out of your house and go to a local event (with your knitting in tow) just for you and people like you. Who knows you might even bump into your neighbor!
    Consider this a spark, to ignite a fire; getting all of the closeted knitters out into fresh air.
    WWKiP Day is really about showing the general public that knitting can be a community activity in a very distinct way. In some places there are many different knitting groups that never interact with each other, on WWKiP Day they come together in one place, making them hard to miss.

    In 2005 there were about 25 local events around the world. In 2006 there were about 70 local events. 2007 there were almost 200.

    Over the years there have been local events in Australia, China, England, Finland, France, Ireland, Norway, South Africa, Sweden, United States… and so many more countries.”
