1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Ferret sweater on: October 07, 2009 10:52:19 PM
Okay, firstly: that ferret is adorable. What's his (her?) name?

Now, to the knitting - that's your first project? Hot damn. I've been knitting off and on for... 8 years (started when I was nine), and I still haven't tackled changing colours in rows OR sweaters of any size. Colour me impressed!

Your hats are lovely! I'm sure your recipients in the colder climates will appreciate them. Cheesy
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: First ever sock on: September 29, 2009 08:29:46 PM
I think you did well! I'm much too terrified to try sock knitting. The mere thought of trying to figure out what "turning a heel" means drains the colour from my face.

The colour is lovely. I'm sure your next pair will be great!
4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Why are you Vegetarian/Vegan? on: September 25, 2009 09:45:51 PM
I had no idea we had a cooking board - this is exciting!

Anywho, I'm a vegetarian purely for environmental reasons. I don't like the idea of using natural resources I don't have to, and contributing to our carbon emissions. I guess I'm technically a "flexitarian" since I do eat the occasional marshmallow.

I'm very lucky to go to a campus that believes in sustainable and ethical food - the eggs come from a free-range farm on the Island, and the milk also comes from the Island.

If you go here, you probably already know this, but I figured there was no harm in posting.

There is a knitting club on campus - info (including contact info for the organizer) is in the Sept 24 edition of the Martlet.
6  CANADA / Ontario / Re: southwestern ontario craft shows? on: September 25, 2009 09:24:45 PM
It would be a bit of a drive, but Owen Sound has Summerfolk in August, and Midland has the Mariposa Folk Festival (which is usally the first weekend of July).

Not only are there craft shows - awesome music too.
7  CANADA / Ontario / Re: Are there craft stores in Canada? on: September 25, 2009 09:22:17 PM
Owen Sound has a yarn store on the Saugeen River by the library. I can't remember the name of it - it's fairly new. I never got to go there before I moved to BC.

There's also Creative Thoughts in Markdale, which is probably about an hour away from Kincardine?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lace yarn... sock yarn? on: September 24, 2009 10:45:04 PM
I was wondering if it's possible to use sock yarn for lace projects. I would like to knit a lace scarf for my sister, and I found a sock yarn in a colourway I know she would love.

Thanks for the help. Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: My First Skirt on: July 09, 2009 12:59:45 PM
That is truly lovely. And I love the pattern!

I have some pink fabric that I wanted to make a skirt out of... this exact style, actually. But I can't seem to find a pattern like this. Do you mind if I ask what pattern you used?
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: 2 purses i recently completed :) on: June 14, 2009 06:40:45 AM
Those are amazing. I'm uber-impressed (and slightly jealous) of those of you who can make things without patterns. That's awesome.

I love them both! And they even have bows... Smiley
