Awesome. I wish I could make for those wonderful events. Its real nice to read about them on your blog. Thanks


You should include a warning with those pics of you in Sweet Pea: Warning, amazing hotness about to be displayed. Please put down all objects (especially those containing liquids) before viewing.

Seriously, I almost choked on my morning caffeine.

I also totally agree with you about the disparity between the knitting establishments and the current influx of knitters. I find it really difficult to find images and/or patterns that I like (especially the men's sections of books, it's almost shaming how limited that is).


Shirley Paden's creation is breathtaking. Yours ain't bad, either!

Thanks for the report - it's refreshing seeing how great things are in the big city!


I have noticed in the shop that the scarfies have been absent this fall. Perhaps knitting has reached it's zenith and in the fall, it will only be us diehards left.

Only time will tell.


I am so happy to have come across your blog. What a joy. I must first compliment you on your Sweet Pea. It looks so great. After reading about the Knit Out via your blog, I don't feel so guilty so not attending this year. I too am a fan of Shirley Paden and her work. Seeing your photos reminded me of the year that I also met her at the Knit Out. Keep on knitting on.


Bravo! You look quite fetching in your Sweet Pea and I hope that your sweet pea appreciated your cuteness, too. Nicely done! :)


You DO look good in Sweet Pea, My dear.


Madam, with pictures like that first one up on your blog you could make a guy forget which team he plays for.

This must have been quite a day. We need such a thing in Chicago. I wonder how I could get people to mobilize?


Now I know what I missed! Shirley Paden looks like a movie star in that amazing capelet/pullover. Sweet Pea was perfect for the weather and looks over-the-top fabulous. And I will confess that I love the yellow crochet outfit. xoxo Kay


That is one amazing capelet/sweater and Shirley Paden is so beautiful. I've always liked her designs and didn't know that she was a sistah!

And, um, the Sweet Pea is fierce, my girl. You look slammin'. I love it. So pretty and looks so feminine and beautiful on you. Great job.
