Katie:

  • 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!!

On the Knitted Path

Sarah:

  • 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

  • Lies Sleeping
  • How Long ‘Til Black Future Month and the Paris Review
    • “The world is pretty unjust right now. Those of us that have grown up on the short end of the justice stick understand this innately and want acknowledgement of that reality, because so much of American society is dedicated to weaving the illusion that what you see is not actually what is happening. The endless excuse-making is part of our mythologizing these days. But fixing that is part of the job that science fiction and fantasy can do. That’s one of the things that I believe that this genre is ideal for accomplishing, if it chooses to.”
