Oh the pain!

The term "Cosby sweaters" has a special meaning to us knitters. This man however has collected the most amazing number of hideous sweaters. Check it out.

For Kami and other Nor-Cal knitters

Debbie Stoller is starting up her Stitch 'n' Ride program again - designated Amtrak cars along the Capitol Corridor route. She'll actually be on the train on March 22nd, 5:30 train from Oakland to Sacramento.

Refinished first sweater (shades of grape) again. Decided it needed a collar. Reminds me of a mail shirt now. Hmm. Where's my jousting stick?

Dying of laughter

Last week (or so) there was a big scandal in the fiber world - Martha Stewart wore a crocheted/knitted poncho upon her release from prison. Now, I don't have all the details right, this poncho was apparently made by her fellow inmates as a going away gift.

Only Martha would get a handmade poncho as a "getting out of jail" gift.

Of course, the fiber manipulators on the board had a field day. Half (of the active posters) were desperate to find this pattern, analyze the image, and determine what yarn to use. The other half were appalled. Either that it was Martha or a poncho (I'm not sure which)

I love being the quiet one watching these debates. Makes me laugh.

But this other blog was the best. The No-Poncho Pledge. I post it here for your reading pleasure. Now excuse me, I need to finish my grey poncho.

She's crafty

Rabid crafters, start your glue guns. This link, courtesy of Michelle, is all about a new reality/competition show for crafters, on the Style network. Sigh. If only I didn't have to go to work....
