Quickie

I'm in Toronto, doing some research at the U of T library. Finished a Charade sock and got caught up on Q podcasts on the train yesterday. Dropped into Lettuce Knit yesterday afternoon to pick up some wool (Bill's nephew's baby decided to arrive a month early, and I'm unprepared!) and got to meet Laura and Megan there. Thinking of going to tomorrow night's Stitch n' Pitch Jays game, despite the event's incorrect punctuation.

OK, I'm off to one of my favourite places, the rare book library! Shhh...

Ooooh Toronto, land of so many yarn stores in one city! Wish I was there too. Go to Stitch n's Pitch I bet you'll have a blast with so many knitters, crafters at one game. ;-)

The Jays need all the help from the fans they can get since they're coming off two losses to the Royals! Hahahaha!

(Sorry, I know you don't care about the sports part of it, but when the Royals win, it's something worth celebrating for us KC ex-pats!)

Oh, you should go to Stitch'n'Pitch! And report back to us, of course. :)

Love the Charade socks and you Herringbone ones as well. Came across your blog from a magazine (don't know which one). I was in B&N looking through magz and came across this article with some blog addresses listed. Always up for a good knit blot. Have fun in Toronto! Hope you'll drop by my blog and leave comment. ...Alice

Hey, welcome to Toronto! I was at a Jays game with the mister last week and I told him all about this week's Stitch n' Pitch game and he laughed for about 10 minutes straight! It sounds like so much fun! I would totally go if I didn't already have plans.

Enjoy Thomas Fisher! I took courses on bibliography and rare books (for 2 different grad degrees) while I was at U of T and they were both held at TF. Such a fantastic library!

You probably know this site www.craftster.org , but knitted digestive tracts (complete with circumvallate papillae) and knitted bachelorette party penis headbands in baby pink!? If nothing else, knitters certainly are creative!
