Tuesday Evening Knitting Circle

This past Tuesday I was invited to visit a knitting circle held at the Kennedy and Eglinton branch of the Toronto Public Library.  I was made most welcome by a lovely bunch of ladies of all ages and thoroughly enjoyed myself!  So much so that I’m going to ask my local branch if they would […]

And next Saturday, June 18, the lovely folks at The Purple Purl are hosting their own Worldwide Knit in Public event (really, it’s […]

Streetknit’s First Yarn Swap!

From time to time I get donations of yarn – old stashes, odds and ends and whathaveyou. Some of this yarn is highly practical and useful for Streetknitters and is passed on at knitups or to various groups. But some of the other yarn is of a fancier variety. Since it’s currently occupying space in […]

Nuit Blanche – volunteers needed!

Nuit Blanche is fast approaching (as in this weekend!) and Streetknit is going to be a part of it.  We’ll be at the Gladstone, on the second floor, knitting blanket squares all night long.  And because it is such a long night (for the non-night owls among us anyway), we need volunteers to staff our […]
