I finally made it to Knit Night at Lettuce Knit yesterday. I hadn't been since July and I was really missing the crazy chatter, the fibre porn and the general cameraderie that is Wednesday Stitch'n'Bitch.
Turns out it was the perfect night to drop everything and be sure I was there.
Jenn bought a new wheel and I got to watch her get covered in green roving while getting all happy making yarn (and she brought wine, so I got that fuzzy glow without spinning).
Denny showed off her beautiful angora creations (yes, there was more than one). She is a woman of talent and style and her lemon squares were yummy.
I got to chat academic life and possibly fleeing from it with Aven (and her comparatively tiny but expanding bump) and a lovely new hire at U of T whose name I didn't get, but who had on gorgeous hand knit red socks and who I hope to meet again. Russian historians who knit are very cool.
I also chatted with Amy, Laura, Maria, Drea, Meagan, Melanie, Michelle, Rachael H. and a bunch of other cool knitters whose names I can't remember and who will hopefully flog me with cashmere next time I see them.
And I had a long chat with Juno who was in Toronto for a visit. Sometimes I meet bloggers and we have a nice chat and pet fibre and it's just a nice time. Other times I meet bloggers and we do all that but I know I want to spend more time with them and realize that it sucks that I don't have more time to chat and pet fibre and get to know them more (because every blogger is more than what's on their page). Juno is one of those people. She's great.
Since I don't have any photos from last night (I tend to forget my camera at important moments) I'll show you my new square (colour 40):
