I have some Madelinetosh and some Jamieson and Smith Shetland, both lace weight, that I want to use to make a shawl. The Madelinetosh is a reddish burgundy colour and when I used it before, the colour came out and ruined a bedspread when I blocked it. I certainly don't want it to run into the grey Shetland wool. Is there something I can do to set the colour before washing it?
Hi. It's been a while since I have posted anything. Knitting has not been my priority. I just finished my orthotic and prosthetic technician training at school (in Minnesota) and have a job lined up in Syracuse, New York. I was wondering if anyone on this site lives in Syracuse, New York? And if anyone has leads on places to live? I have begun to look for places to live on craigslist. And since I am packing and planning to move, I can not possibly move with all my yarn. So is anyone interested in a large grab bag of an assortment of good yarn.
A shot of my new book and t-shirt. Nice! Especially grateful to every fella that knits for making it possible. Cheers!
Hi, everybody. It's the first day of Spring and I hope you all have a great one. I had planned to have the latest pair of socks done yesterday but will settle for today or, at the latest, tomorrow.
I'm excited to share with you all that a friend of mine and I are organizing a wonderful event for World Wide Knit in Public Day!
The event will take place on Saturday, June 13th from around 10:00am-5:00pm in a beautiful park in Westland, MI. Entry fee is a mere $7.50, and this will include your entrance into the event, a Ravelry name button, and your lunch.

Registration is now officially open for the 2015 Men’s Fall Knitting Retreat. This year’s dates are Thursday, September 3 through Sunday, September 6.
We have had a facility cost increase this year, but we have endeavored to keep costs low. Registration prior to May 15 will be $435. This is only a $25 increase from 2014!
Today I got an email regarding Etsy filing a registration statement for an IPO. I know some of you sell things using Etsy so here is the link that announces the registration.
