When I finally figured out how to hack wordpress in order to see more than the last 20 comments* I discovered that Kerrie won my little comments contest. My friend Sheena came to visit yesterday, and while teaching her to purl and knit in the round and follow a pattern so she can make her first hat I got round to making a prize.
Sheena has well and truly been bitten by the knitting bug. I had to tell her to put it down so she wouldn’t miss her bus this morning.
I have been knitting the most boring thing ever, studying and trying to get rid of my nasty nasty cold. Fun times.

Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
