Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday to my US readers!

Potter Craft was also kind enough to send me a copy of Clara Parkes’s new book, The Knitter’s Book of Yarn. I have a healthy appreciation for all things Clara, having been a member of Knitter’s Review almost since the day I learned to knit. But I think I might have passed this one by if I were just browsing in a bookstore or a local yarn shop.

And that would have been a dreadful, dreadful mistake. I’ve read the entire thing cover to cover and I really think that every serious knitter needs to own a copy of this book.

Knitting While Walking = More Time to Knit

July 14th, 2006 | 3 Comments

I knit as I crossed the street.
I knit as I moved my feet.
I knit as I climbed some stairs.
I knit as I got some stares.

Not only was I knitting while walking, but I was cabling while walking.

I am awesome.
