Eskimimi Knits, as a thing arising from the Blog Hub group on Ravelry (I didn’t express that very well, you know what I mean). Anyway, during that week, lots of knit and crochet bloggers are going to be blogging on the same topics but bringing their own personal
Also, if you’re not already on Ravelry and you have even the most passing interest in anything woolly – if you once admired the size of a huge ball of aran: if you’ve ever peered at your friend’s handknit shawl in handspun laceweight and said ‘I’d like one like that. Could you make me one for next week? I’ll give you £5 and try not to leave it in the pub': if you have a secret hankering for one of those poodle toilet roll covers which you can’t buy in shops: then do not waste another moment of this brief, confusing life, get over instantly to Ravelry and register, because it’s just a marvellous, marvellous site. Patterns, help, projects to lust after, everything. And we nice people in the Blog Hub group will mop up your blood and tears when you turn up, fresh from the triumph of having rushed to the forums 1 minute after signing up and started a topic with the title ‘I can’t believe people knit with Acrylic! OMGZ!!!!! Have they got no taste!!!?’ or, ‘Why would anyone want to crochet LOL? I suppose only because it’s so much easier than knitting’.
For lots more info on KniCroBloWe (I jest), get on over to Mimi’s lovely blog. If you haven’t already found her blog, then you’re in for a treat, I personally wish she would come over and take all my photographs for me because, well, look at hers, so she is very lucky she doesn’t live in Cambridge because I can imagine that might come to be a burden in time.
Now onto my quilt-in-progress. Could I have some advice, pls, nice internet people? I have pieced the top, this is it.
