All your yarn are belong to us

Someone posted this in the Knitting Livejournal community:

I thought it was funny, even though I really shouldn't be laughing at people who make English mistakes because it's not their first language. God knows my English is far from prefect (yeah I noticed the typo, I just thought it was deliciously ironic).

And I wish you all a very useful knitting time.


In the knitting news:

1. I gave the baby hat to my friend. She loved it. I'm happy.

2. Clapotis is definitely being frogged. I'm not sure what I'll do with the yarn. I'm in no rush to use it right now. I will, however, go out and buy yarn to make a better Clapotis. Oh yes I will.

3. Poster boy girl is going well. I think.

4. I've been so busy lately I've had no time to blog and even to knit that much. And I feel like it's going to be the same until I can finally take some vacation mid-August.

Next week, I'm having dinner with a friend who's going to have her first baby in August. So I made her this:

Awwww. Isn't it cute? I hope she'll like it.


If you want to win a shawl knitted by Veronik Avery or cool yarn AND give to a good cause at the same time, I urge you to check out the Montreal Knits blog. Details are all there. Go now!


And now, ladies and gentlemen, here's a little praisin':

I bought a Denise needles set a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, I broke one of my cords (it was a total accident, I swear!). I had heard that you could get a replacement if you sent 1$ for postage to the company, but since I live in good ol' Canada, I figured I'd email first to ask if I need to send extra postage. Well the lady who answered my email asked me to just email her my address and tell her which cord I broke and she'd send a replacement to me. No postage to pay. Now that is good customer service. And I LOVE my Denise set. Therefore, I recommend it to everyone. Go buy it. Now.

Too hot for socks

So yesterday was Knit in public day and I met with three Ms -- Mona, Molly and Mary -- in a coffee shop. I LOVE TO KNIT WITH OTHER PEOPLE! There, I said it.

I actually got a lot of knitting done yesterday, at the meet and afterwards. I finished the socks:

(I only wore them long enough to take the picture. You can't wear wool socks when it's 30 degrees (Celsius) outside, no matter how soft and comfortable they are.

I also casted on for the Poster Boy bag from Stitch N' Bitch Nation. Except mine will be Poster Girl (or something else entirely if I can't make it work). Yay, Caro's doing Fair Isle! Of course, I'm nowhere close be making these gloves, but I'll get there... someday.

Random annoyance: I'm on a yahoo mailing list for a knit-along, and it looks like one of the members is on vacation right now. So every time someone sends a message to the list, we get an automated "I'm away on vacation" reply. Every time! Grrrr!

Look at it and weep...

...because this, my friend, is a work of art:

Feather and fan sock from Socks Socks Socks, made with love and some yummy Fleece Artist sock yarn.

Sock #2 is on the needles. The sad thing is that it's now way too hot for wool socks. But no sock in the world, no matter how pretty it is, is going to make me wish it was winter right now.
