Now that the new Dr. Who has been announced...Peter Capaldi...I wanted to share another cute little Dr. Who Moment. In one of the episodes in the 6th season, I noticed that in a bar setting, he was reading a knitting magazine. Of course, it would by my first instinct to put a knitting magazine in a bar...not!
In thinking about the Men's Rocky Mountain Knitting Retreat, I realized I should probably offer some advice on traveling with yarn. Here's the blog (a day before it get's published on knittingman.wordpress.com) for you to peruse. Let me know if you have any other travel tips!
At the Men's Rocky Mountain Knitting Retreat, we stopped in at the Loopy Ewe and I managed to pick up a gig teaching a couple of classes. One of them will be beginning lace. Although I'll be covering lace knitting in general and theoretical terms, it was suggested that I teach toward a pattern as well. I decided on the Grouchy Geisha from ravelry.
This is turning out to be a fun project...smooth sailing through the 2X2
rib and cables only every 16 rows. I am taking the opportunity during the
Florida summer evenings to prepare for the cool winter nights to come. I'm
using Cascade Eco+ bulky...forgot the name of the color but it's green to
Happy knitting guys
Good Morning Everyone,
Thanks again, everyone!
I want to respond to some of you individually, but I've been a little "scattered" (scatterbrained) lately, so have put that off until the brain cells are functioning a bit more rationally.
Good Morning All,
These are turned knitting spools by Grizzly Mountain Arts.
He doesn't list them very often. You'll have better luck getting one if you belong to the Grizzly Mountain ravelry group. He lets the group know when he's done new ones.
By the way...I'm back on Ravelry as Thunderchief1954. In case anyone is interested.
