We Are knitters with attitude

craftic:

You know there could never be a knitter’s version of Project Runway because each episode would take at least 3 months to record.

I don’t know why they have never done any machine knit garments ever on that show. They don’t even have it as an option. or a collaboration with one of the many knitting services in the garment district.

Probably the most adorable photo I have ever taken.  This little guy was rescued by us at the Kids Saving the Rainforest wildlife rescue center in Costa Rica.  We just started a new branch to the organization devoted to sloths:  www.theslothinstitutecostarica.org  This little guy is only a day or two old…he’s got a long journey ahead of him!

Harry Potter it was my first ever scarf too!

The A-Team! I couldn’t remember for a while, but now I recall a big A-Team logo was the first proper thing I knitted after learning intarsia.

Pokemon!

Sherlock.

Ehrm, the Memphis Milano design movement of the 80s. I took the sweater to meet the furniture (which was knit into the sweater) in the ultimate design nerd way, at the Metropolitan museum of art.

I took a trip to the lion brand store in Colonie, NY.

A must see for all knitters.

Wait!! This is just down the road and I had no idea!?!?! I’m putting myself in the corner to think about what I’ve done

It’s a really normal looking shopping canter, never would have known about it, but they bought the retail space from the family we were visiting after they closed their fabric store.

I think they promote the Manhattan location a lot more because it is in a more populated/touristy area.

Happy Fall, from Sept. 22-29, all patterns in the Xandy Peters Design Ravelry store are 20% off with coupon code knitseason

That includes all new patterns which can be knit in heavy weight yarns for winter.
