And She Spins Too!!

It's my 1st real yarn!!!

My first bobbin of singles is on the Right - I totally got better on the 2nd bobbin!

I estimate that there is approx. 31metres (34 yds) - not much but I'll work it into something!!

Someone stop me!!!

Actually, I don't really mean that!!

It’s getting to be that time of year - Julie's annual, this-is-the-one-that-you’ve-been-waiting-all-year-for tent sale. For those of you who may not know, The Needle Emporium does not have sales throughout the year - Julie culls ends of lines, dye lot leftovers, last season’s colours and anything she doesn’t like looking at any more and they get put away. Then, once a year, she gathers all of these treasures along with bargains that she’s scored from distributors and puts them under a huge tent.

I have yet to walk away with the strength to add another ball to a bag or see anyone come and not find some small (or large) treasure. You’re sure not to be disappointed - and bonus!! this year the tent sale is not at the mercy of the elements!! Julie is taking it indoors. So mark your calendars, but don’t get in my way!!! You Go Girl:

WWKiP Day at the Scarborough Town Centre

The title says it all - that's where I'll be. For the whole day. So if you're in need of some shade, A/C, a port in a storm or just a sympatico knitting ear, come on by!!
I may even bring Douglass (my Majacraft wheel) and give him some of my love & attention.

Plurk Addict

It just feeds into my voyeuristic and "nosy parker" tendencies. Plurk is my new online toy and since it happens in real time ... well, good thing that multi-tasking my secret ability and that Plurking & knitting go so well together!

Toronto Spiders - Brought it!!

We rocked it out and had a great time doing it! There's a great article in the Toronto National Post today (pg 3); here's the link to the online version.
There is a team in the Czech Republic competing this year - they'll be doing their sweater on the 14th - nice for WWKiP Day!!! - so we won't know how we finish in the standings until the 15th, but we're all agreed that we champions no matter what!!
