Knit In public, the Winter Edition

Hello all!

I was thinking we need anotherKnit in public day now that the weather has cooled off. So after talking to fellow Ravelers I have finalized the info.

Day, time and location: Sunday, January 25, 2009, noon till duskish, Memorial Park in Jacksonville, Florida.

Check out this video of the park!

If you google Memorial Park Jacksonville, Florida it will be able to give you directions there.

Memorial Park is along the St. John's River and has stunning views and would be great for pictures of your finished projects!

Knitters, Crocheters, and spinners are welcome. Please tell all your friends. I am hoping to have at least one if not more raffles going on that afternoon. Who knows what could be up for raffles, project bags, needles, maybe a gift certificate for a LYS, fiber, sock yarn, hat patterns, etc.

Concerned are you about food and bathrooms? Right across the street is a Publix, Starbucks, and some food joints. (I planned ahead)

There are some benches, but you will definitely need to bring some extra chairs.

I hope you can make it!

Let's show Jax that knitters are NOTHING like the stereotype they think we are!

The awesomeness of Lorna's Laces

I love Lorna's laces yarn. I horde my skeins of Bullfrogs and Butterflies like a squirrel does his acorns & nuts. I have their sock yarn in tons of colors, but not my most favorite color combination in the world, Orange and Blue.

I was shocked to see someone on Ravelry who had Orange and Blue Lorna's Laces!!! I never knew they had that colorway. I begged the person for two skeins or even just 1 from their stash. No go. She wouldn't give it up. I called the store where she bought it from and they were all out and didn't know when they would get more in.

I asked my most favorite yarn stores, Hanks in Gainesville, Fl to ask around for me, still a no go.

Then I got an email from the Loopy Ewe. They had Team Colors in stock. "Team Colors," I thought I had better check it out.

And there sat the yarn. There was a golden halo around it as it called to me. Then i was signed in buying and paying for it within,oh, 2 nano-seconds. I don't even recall sending the send payment button.

The colors are great but what else can you expect from Lorna's Laces??

I lurve it so.
