Whenever I can I try to go to the SnB on Wednesday night in downtown New Haven. The city is probably best known for being the home of Yale University. About 2 weeks ago, (it might have been more) and there was a reporter (Mia Wang) for The New Journal Magazine. She did an article on the group. You can read about it here. Just scroll down the article titled Sharing needles. That's me, Heather!! I thought that the article was very nice and put the group and knitting in a positive light.
A funny thing happened last night at my daughter's school orientation. I was in my daughter's classroom with the other parents listening to the teacher and a woman next to me starting talking to me and I realized that she was from SnB. Jackie (who is also mentioned in the article) also has a child in the same class. What a small world. It helped put me at ease knowing someone there. She also lives right down the street from me. I wonder if we could cross breed our stashes to form some kind of super yarn!!
Oh by the way, I want to make the Cutaway sweater by Chic knits. It calls for a DK/Sport yarn and I am having a hard time finding a good one. The pattern doesn't give a yarn used for the sweater. Right now I am making a swatch with Knit Picks Merino Style. I am not sure if this is the right yarn to use but first I have to finish the swatch. Anyone got any suggestions? ?
