Chantal Ratnam big 30 happy birthday instagram Knitting shop news summer vacation update

Back to Reality

Aaaaand we're back!! Unfortunately.  I mean you guys saw the pictures right?  Ashley's parent's trailer was idyllic.  Beautiful lake, beautiful weather and awesome company. Even when it rained the sound surrounded us like it was singing us a lullaby.  It was definitely the kind of place that makes going back to the hum drum of a colour neutral office space Depressing. As. Hell. I mean, how much do I really need a day job?   We spent the better part of our days alternating between playing with the kids, knitting, reading romance novels that I picked up as an impulse...

WIP it. WIP it good!

As you guys all know ASH AND I ARE ON VACATION!! WOOHOO!!!  How excited are you for us? Lol,  I can feel the hard eye rolls from here.   As per usual I have left my packing to the absolute last moment.  The funny thing is I never think of it as 'having not packed'.  As far as I'm concerned if the laundry is washed and dried everything else is a technicality.  Really what's the difference between the dryer and my backpack? None at all, I say. The truth is I put more thought into how I'm going to keep...

Baridee

Ok so over the last year I've been OBSESSED with our Singleton yarn.  It started with the little Flax Light sweater by Tin Can Knits that I knitted for Paige last summer and it really just kept going from there.  Since then I've accumulated seven skeins of it for various projects on my ever evolving queue but since I'm a pretty slow knitter perpetually taking on new projects my Baridee shawl by Anthony Casalena has been the only thing I've been able to finish.     (Paige in her Flax Light - knit in the Rad colourway) This is mostly because...

RSBSY Summer Break

RSBSY Summer Break

Hey all! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far!  Ash and I made the executive decision to take the summer off... well sort of off.  More of a slow down.  After the Toronto Knitters Frolic and the Prince Edward County Fibre Fest we were both pretty ready for a nap and Ash still had a trunk show for the Yarnover Truck in Southern California to prepare for. We were both super excited about that.  I briefly toyed with the idea of having Ash box me up and ship me out there with the yarn.  Apparently there's rules about that...
