Knitting in the press

An article in the Guardian this week about craft hobbies caused lots of discussion on Ravelry and twitter, even getting its own hashtag – #ANDknitting.  If you have a look at the hashtag search its so interesting to see the variety of careers that knitters around the world have.  The Ravelry thread discussing the article is here.  Knitting also made the news in the Globe and Mail and caused controversy when it called knitting fusty!  But did also say that knitting had its groove back…

Geep!

As if it couldn’t get any better for Sarah after the lambs on instagram last week, a geep was born in Ireland.  It’s a super-rare cross between a goat and a sheep, and is just as cute as you’d expect!  The farmer was interviewed here, seems like its sheep mother is looking after it well.

Events

3 May is Yarn Shop Day — Ysolda will be at Kathy’s Knits in the afternoon doing Book signing and helping you take proper measurements so you can make your own Perfect Sweater

There are still a few spaces left for Ysolda’s Shawl Geometry Class at This is Knit in Dublin on 17 May. 

The Events page is still a work in progress but you can see some of the upcoming events Ysolda will be attending.

Wish I was there

Iceland!  It seems like the knitwear design world has moved there at the moment.  Well, not really, but Stephen West, Cirilia Rose and Kate Davies have all paid a visit.  It looks like a whole lot of fun is being had, and there are some beautiful (and hilarious) images from their trips on Kate’s blog and Stephen and Cirilia’s instagram.

The Makerie Spring retreat is this weekend and I’m kinda jealous, maybe Sarah and I should do some embroidery or crochet this weekend as both Cal Patch and Rebecca Ringquist are teaching. Last year Sarah and I both worked on the drop-cloth monthly embroidery and Rebecca released her new monthly collection Color Burst which looks amazing.

What are you planning on working on this weekend?
