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.

I get most of this except the enclosing part - anyone have a clue - I tried finding a video… not luck yet.
It's been a while since I checked in . Figured I'd share what I am currently working on.
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.
Greetings fellow knitters! :)
I haven't been on here in a while - so I'd like to say hello first! Hello!
About a month ago I had the thought of combining a class with a Knit-A-Long. As a result, I came up with a VKAL, or VIDEO Knit-A-Long. It's a Knit-A-Long with video support, so even beginners feel comfortable enough with learning a new technique.
I just finished this pair of socks for my mother. I like the way they turned out using the Evil Genius method again. The yarn is a superwash Merino/nylon blend that softens up quite nicely when washed and blocked. Mom's toes have a mind of their own and didn't grow especially straight, with two on each foot crossing over another. She never has to cross her fingers for luck, her toes have done that for her. She also has a very large big toe bone (cuneiform bone for those of you who enjoy anatomy) also known and a bunion.
