As I face my personal Moment of Gift-Knitting Truth (I’m on Teacher 3 of 4; will I make it, or should I go shopping STAT?), I’m also packing a shopping bag with PLO SUUs (pre-laid-out sew-up units) for tonight’s sew-up party. We’ll be whipstitching our little hearts out from 4 until at least 8 at the ever welcoming city of knitting: Knitty City, 208 West 79th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam. You don’t need to bring anything, but if you bring your own tapestry needle you will receive one additional snack of your choice. Stop by!
Cara and Other Ann will be driving in to join us. Pinching of bingo wings will NOT be tolerated. This is for the safety of all, and Knitty City’s insurance.

This just in: the first UK blanket has been finished. It’s gorgeous, it’s cozy, and it’s got more than 1200 rows of i-cord in the border. The raffle drawing for this blanket will be on Wednesday, December 19. Tickets are still on sale. Simply send a PayPal payment to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you get one chance for each $2 or 1 British pound. Tickets stay in the pool for the items to be raffled in the coming weeks, including our American blankets. Which we can’t show you a picture of yet.
Well, we can show you a picture. It’s just not very inspiring at the moment. Unless your tattoo says “Born to Whipstitch”. (Come to think of it, if I had a tattoo, it might say that.)
