  • Ravelry’s recent policy adjustment: inclusion and diversity are only meaningful if spaces are also safe.
  • Safety in knitting communities. Be thoughtful about whose posts you share, and who you invite into their space by doing so.

  • Making Things – inadequate response to questions about white privilege. Will be pausing my participation while I await the work that they say they will undertake. What this means for you: Any patterns currently being made by you will remain in the library for up to 12 weeks to allow you to finish the pattern

  • Impervious!!  – 4th skein is a bit lighter than the other three, but there’s no way to alternate, so continuing on it is!
    • Had an Impervious date with a friend, was very quiet
  • Robin – Still picking away at it
  • Raina – on second brioche section. Yay!!

  • Yarn shopping in TO: two days of shopping, 5 yarn stores. Still didn’t get to them all! Missed Purple Purl and new one The Knitting Loft.
    • New to me PassionKnit – lovely atmosphere, sweet staff, had my gnomes as a kit and I couldn’t breathe, and a nice selection
    • EweKnit – love how big and varied it is, but haven’t once felt welcomed there. I always feel like a customer and never a knitter.
    • Knit-O-Matic – lovely welcoming people, always time to sit and knit
    • Romni Wools – massive but visually yuck and overwhelming but alllll the yarn
    • Yarns Untangled – near Kensington Market, perfect for visitors to TO, good selection, plus focus on Canadian brands
  • Curiosa Society – so Harry Potter!
  • Bought yarn for my sock goals! 3 colourways of TurtlePurl – Canada’s best self-striping yarn.
  • Splurge on Mineville DK in a white with blue speckles. Should show texture and cables like a dream
