A look into the dark and disturbing history of the Tree Huggers Project in Iowa City and the Yarn Bombers behind it.
This weekend I had the great fortune to take a class with Stephen West and his friend Ragga. They were fantastic!!! The class was called RagaWest Idea Tank.
I was at the Fancy Tiger in Denver a while back and they told me about the class coming up. I signed up immediately. The last one sold out before I even heard of it so I wanted to make sure I got a seat.
I have to confess, there is a small piece of knitting that I would rather do without. I will spend months hand spinning yarn, choosing the perfect pattern and slaving over the insanely detailed instructions to produce an heirloom quality piece of work.
Our yarnbombing was a great success. Here's a link to photos I took there:
The local TV station ATV also came and talked with us.
Our section is at just about 1:00 on the clip.
Hey guys -
According to the Ravelry forum on knitting retreats , there are still quite a few slots open for the Men's Retreat in Allenspark, CO [just up the mountain from Estes Park] for July 18 - 21, 2013.
For my next project, I want to tackle Barbara Walker's magic mosaic afghan. I love mosaic tiles in general and would love to see it in a blanket. My issue is on how much yarn to buy (so that I'm using the same lot numbers.) There's no indication in the book and when I research online, I haven't found an answer. Has anyone completed this project?
In The Woods Campground, 142 Casey Court, Canon, GA 30520.
We are offering five workshops: Fair Isle, Cables with-out a Cable Needle, Orenburg Lace, Brioche and Reversible Two-Color, Two-Pattern Knitting.
Here is the base pattern (no custom ribbing or anything)
Toe Up on #6(US) Dpn's

I saw this article about a male knitter who makes felted carpets. It's on the Brownsheep blog homepage.
I was glad to see that the sex of the knitter was never presented as an oddity or curiosity -- only the fact that he knits left-handed.
I want to see the bear rug!
Hi - I've been so swamped in work for several months that knitting had really fallen by the wayside. Now I'm deciding which laid-aside project to finish first.
