BULLETIN: Knitting at the Nashville Library!

knittingcircle.jpg
Dear all, particularly those in Tennessee or the eight states that touch Tennesseee (can you name ‘em?),
You never know who might show up knitting at the downtown Nashville library:

Coleman and her Koigu log cabin blanket.

Dee Dee, who came all the way from Keene, New Hampshire. We especially love New England knitters who think Nashville is just not that far to come for a bit of knitting.

And no shortage of groovy gals. The Hello Kitty quotient is ferocious . . .
Come join us on Monday, November 13, noon to 2 pm, downtown Nashville public library. Conference Room 2, unless it’s nice and warm in which case we’ll be in the courtyard. Directions are here.
I have a couple of giveaways, and the Provence bakery is giving 10% discounts to knitters. Can’t wait–see you there!

  1. New England Knitter in the hizz-ouse! I would totally go to Tennessee to knit (from CT), but my family might commit me first.
    Anywhoo…question for Kay- those Oylmpic hats you cranked a while back, is there a pattern? Its hat making time and I’ll I’ve got is a beanie with a ribbed edge. pooh.
    How about a perfect hat symposium?

  2. um, yeah, let me rephrase that in english.
    all I’ve got is a beanie pattern with a ribbed edge and my husbands not too keen on the umbilical cord hat.
    Also, my decrease doen’t swirl, they crash into one another. Any help?
    Thanks!

  3. Would love to being one of those states that borders TN but it a long drive from Western Arkansas.

  4. Kentucky, North Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia, Missouri, Alabama, Virginia
    I payed attention in TN history in 4th grade!

  5. One of these days I’m going to drive up there. Maybe when my husband is off on a Monday. Even though she loves Hello Kitty, I wouldn’t subject anyone to the three year old. Yet. Maybe when my school is out.
    It looks like y’all had fun!

  6. DUDE! I got that answer right in the hubbo quiz the other night at dinner. Aren’t there like one or two more states that border a million states? Like Missouri? I definitely got Tennessee. ;-)

  7. Coleman! That is a DESTINATION log cabin. OMG OMG. The subtlety! The artistry! The casual tossing off of the genius with color!
    Very sad for the Non Nashvillers to be missing this every month.

  8. Wish I could be there. Will be thinking of you in Illinois.

  9. If I named 8 states that I thought touched TN, you’d wake up in Ohio. Have fun!

  10. hmmm. i’m off on mondays… i live 1.5 hours away from nashville… hrm! should i drive out there!? i just might! i’d just have to be back in time for my own snb that night!! :D

  11. Whoa! For a second I thought it was 100% discounts for knitters and considered if it’s too far to get from Seattle to Nashville for a spot of knitting.
    Also: EIGHT states border TN? That’s impossible! (Okay, I just think I can only name 5 without cheating.)

  12. I was lucky enough to get a mitred square pin from my lucky-duck s-i-l Dee Dee! I had to go home a day early! Nashville rocks!

  13. The pictures were great and I must admit to knitting envy…you’re knitting in the sunshine in a courtyard and we got our first snowfall today! Granted, it has already melted, but it is still way too cold to knit outside. Bring on the wool sweaters over turtlenecks!

  14. Ann,
    I’m being fussed at by my Vandy midwifery classmates who taught me how to knit. They are sooooo jealous that I was there without them and you signed my book…my pic on the website made it worse ;-). I can’t make it Monday (school) but I will be there with the jealous ones in December. See you then!
    PS. I’m in the orange shirt w/ big hair.

  15. Zoe loved her 2 minutes of fame! I posted more pictures of this lovely day at my site…Can’t make it this Monday – work calls (at least it’s a yarn shop!)…will be there in December!

  16. Ann, I WILL be able to make it this month. Francie and I both have polymer clay shows this week-end, so I don’t know how awake we will be! (Hers is a 2-day, she will be worse) Maybe I better pick up coffee downstairs first? Can’t wait to see everyone again. (I’ll miss you Pam, and Zoe!) See you then.

  17. I had to post when I saw that my TRAITOR classmate and friend made some comments about me and our other dear friend having some ALLEGED jealousy over her attending the knitting session this month. Keep in mind that said commenter snuck off to the knitalong in secret, only to be EXPOSED in full pictorial evidence on our beloved Mason Dixon blog!! Tsk tsk… Don’t worry, vindication will be OURS come December! We will be in prompt, enthusiastic attendance, our yarn will be neatly wound into happy little center-pull balls, and our needles will be sharp.
    We can’t wait to be back home in Nashville!! See you soon! ;-)

  18. Thanks for the reminder!!! I’ll be there.
    Smiles,
    Erin

  19. Dag that log cabin blankey is stunning!

  21. Please tell Coleman that the Log Cabin blanket is
    very nice (I’m rather low key as a rule but I thought it was gorgeous)! I just borrowed this book at the library and went to my local Micheal’s store and bought it! Wonderful! Kay, you and Ann are genius and humor! I laughed so hard the tears ran and the dog gave me dirty looks like “Mom, are we going to bed already”?
    I told her “we are in bed-go to sleep-Mama wants to read till the small hours”.
    Just wanted to tell you too that I signed on after studying for a tax exam and read Kay’s talk on her Rowenta iron. I”m envious of your knitting group but live in Michigan-way too far to hoof to TN to knit but would love to. You gals sound like my cup of tea! Just wanted to hat’s off to you ladies-not only the best knitting book in my library but the funniest book that I own-period!
    And I can hardly wait to try the patterns.
    Could anyone tell me if the short night dress in lavendar with matching dark plum robe-could be made larger and longer? I’m a plus sized 173 pound Queen Kong with scars on my left ankle. I would want a longer gown that didn’t show the scars but absolutely love the work in that set.
    Not used to sizing up or down-not a good enough knitter yet but would like to be better. I’ve been knitting for a while though and want to try new things.
