a HUGE SHoutOut to Therese Cruz for sending me this fabulous Japanese Knitting Pattern book (ISBN 4-529-03911-0)…

I’ve lusted after one of these for months after seeing them online – really wonderful designs and ideas! Therese also sent me this to help understand the incredible charts! Thank you so much!!!



OMG! I’m edging away from the green – slowly now – I’m taking a deep breath of neutral…

Here’s some lovely Elizabeth Lavold Cotton Patine that arrived yesterday – I believe Tank Madness is about to ensue!


Is Tiramisu considered dinner? On KIP night you bet! After a ridiculous work day, much funk/noise ensued over at Letizia’s where we broke out the needles, snacks and knitting. We were joined by the lovely Melanie, in town for a business trip – all the way from Richmond, VA. A huge shoutout to Melanie for driving all the way in to see us and CONQUERING the Chicago traffic and inscrutable highways…

Melanie just finished GIGI using Knitpicks’ Merino DK (check out her April 14th entry) – BRAVA! At the KIP, she had a sweater she’s working on out of their wool/silk yarn. Yummy…
steal this if you like
If you’re already in town or in from out of town and want to join in the fun, we meet the first and third Thursdays of the month at Letizia’s on Division. We’re (all Chicago Knitting Groups invited) also putting together a Summer Fun list of possible KIP outdoor picnic/rave events attending other scheduled outdoor music shows, festivals, etc. Email me event suggestions here or leave it in the comments section – we’re thinking of Taste of Chicago; Blues Fest; etc…
