Dragonflys

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.

Knitter's Block

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.

Taksim Park Yarn Bombing Video

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.

Magic Mosaic Afghan

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?

Carpet knitting?

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!

Yarnbombing

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.
