This week, there’s some discussion of a con we’re not at but wish we were, there are some finished objects, some progress on others (and a couple started *cough*) as well as a handy tip for knitting lace. There’s quite a bit of movie-related news involving some interesting casting and a classic’s re-release that has Karen squealing. There’s also some advance planning for our road trip this weekend (WOO!).
Oh and an update on something mentioned in the podcast: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has *not* lost its third director. Bring on the witticisms and the decapitations!
We have new stuff! We’re on twitter and have shops on Zazzle.com and Zazzle.ca! We’re also going to be at the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters Fair in Kitchener, Ontario on Sept. 10th, and (provided it arrives in time!) we’ll have a little something special for people that find us.
Discussed in this episode:
The shawl Maggie couldn’t remember the name of was the Nefertiti Wrap by Miriam Felton.
Here’s a more visual guide to doing lifelines! There are also videos on YouTube. And if you’re using KnitPicks Options Interchangeable needles or another brand that has a small hole in the needle, just thread your lifeline thread through the hole and knit normally! Just don’t use this method with stitch markers.
If you’re in the Niagara area, be sure to head to Jordan Village for a stop at Stitch and The Fibre Garden. So much pretty stuff and the owners of both stores are really friendly. I forgot to mention that the guys at the Fibre Garden saved my butt when it came to getting the yarn to dye for the Potions Master Shawl.
Musical theatre geeks: Les Miserables is coming to the big screen with some OMG AMAZING casting. I. Cannot. Wait.
Update on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – Lionsgate denies that director Craig Gillespie has jumped ship. I know you’re all so relieved.
Jurassic Park is being re-released in theatres prior to its blu-ray release! OMG WANNA GO SEE IT AGAIN ON THE BIG SCREEN SO BAD.
