This week, it’s mostly about the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Fair. Who we met (hi Delores!), what we saw, what we were looking for, what we got, and a few little tips on how to go to these kinds of events and not be totally overwhelmed. But it’s not just all Fair, all the time–there’s a little geek news for tabletop gamers wanting to bring younger gamers into the fold, as well as responses to a couple requests we’ve had, capped off with a little news for anyone whose credit cards aren’t in danger of bursting into flame.
As usual you can email us at email@example.com or join in the discussion on the Knit 1 Geek 2 Ravelry group as well as chatter with us on Twitter. And you can check out the shirts we mentioned in our Zazzle.com and Zazzle.ca stores!
