Why, thank you for your generous comments about The Hiking Moose (crochet) Cowl, you lovely lot. Having published the knitted version as well as the crochet version, I was wondering more than usual how many of you are knitters, how many are hookers, and how many are bicraftual. Would you do me the honour of answering this quick one-question poll, please? Just click one of the following circles and then hit the ‘vote’ button…
Meanwhile, tomorrow (Saturday) is Yarn Shop Day, at least here in the UK. If you’re free in the afternoon, and you’re near Abingdon in Oxfordshire (yeah, I know, that’s a long-shot), and you want to come and laugh at a yarn-blogger/psychologist looking socially awkward, then do come down to Masons in Abingdon – the yarn-selling branch of Masons that’s on Stert Street.
I’ll be there from 2pm, so do come and say hello. Rather more enticing is the fact that Masons are offering 10% off all yarn all day, and there’s going to be a muchly generous raffle of bags of Stylecraft yarns (including in some cases the Head Over Heels sock yarn that I used for the hiking moose/reindeer cowl).
And if you’re in the UK, but just not this particular bit of the UK, I know that many of my fellow Stylecraft Blogstars are making appearances at various yarn shops tomorrow, and they’d all be delighted for you to go and chat yarn with them, too.
Finally, some of you will already have seen from this blog’s Facebook page, but my wise and yarny friend Alice has published a blog post on the startling similarities between crochet and coding: it’s definitely worth a read. (And I’d be saying that even if she wasn’t my friend.)
Right, have we covered everything on the agenda? Is it time to slump lower on the sofa and get on with some particularly mindless knitting, perhaps with a glass of wine on the go? It is? Oh good. 🙂
Happy Friday night yarnery, my friends.
