Montréal

Earlier this month, we headed east on a trip to Montréal, planned strategically between the massive Smart-Ass Knitters/World Domination Club mailing, and the G8/G20 summits.  We dropped Otis off at the “spa” (shhhhhhh…don’t tell him it’s really the animal hospital/boarding kennel…he’s a little blonde) and down to Toronto to take the train.

Things I love about the train to Montréal:
a)  5-6 hours of uninterrupted knitting time,
b)  I can sleep and still get closer to where I’m going,
c)  5-6 hours of uninterrupted knitting time, and leg room (not that I need much…I’m 5’0″…but still…there was a BIG knitting bag),
d)  we land RIGHT in the middle of downtown, close to whatever hotel we’re staying at, so there’s no travel after our travel,
e)  did I mention knitting?  5 hours?  No interruptions?

The first order of business, after dropping our bags at the hotel, was to go out an explore!  First stop…Old Montréal.  We had business to do.  We may be the only people to plan a trip around finding mustard.

(In our defense it was VERY good mustard.  Brickstone honey, lime and chipotle mustard.  We got a small jar on our last trip and discovered it’s a magic ingredient.  We spread it on chicken before grilling it, put it in grilled cheese sandwiches, soups, salad dressings…  We were very sad to see the bottom of the jar.  Very. Sad.)

So, yes…Old Montreal.  Home of the last place we saw OUR mustard, our favourite restaurant and this little gallery, whose name and exact location I can never remember, but have managed to find on every trip since I was in high school.

Ever been?  This is what Old Montréal looks like…everywhere you turn.

I woke up on Day 2, to find the Boy online.  He declared it was “YARN DAY” and was planning out where we should go and what our route should be.  Jaw.drop.faint.dead.
(How did I manage to brainwash him into believing everyday should be YARN DAY train him to inevitably expect yarn to be part of every trip?  I suppose it’s some strange combination of where we ended up on our second date, the fact that yarn is keeping a roof over his head and the Pavlovian instinct that comes after reskeining a mountain of yarn each week.  He also does dishes.)

First stop, was Ariadne Knits.  A bright and beautiful little store that had a nice range of yarns and fibre, including exactly what we were looking for:  local yarn/fibre.  We came away with some yarn and fibre from Projekt B, and some Alpaca/Merino from S.E.E. Alpacas.

merino/nylon sock yarn...I got 2 skeins. It's purple. I had no choice.

Merino top in "Desert Camo"

BFL -- Shark Attack. ::snort::

Alpaca/merino...we'll be dyeing up a couple of these for the next update!

Store atmosphere:  Great!  The owner was friendly and engaging, but also left us alone to browse.  (Something I really appreciate)  There was an area set out for people to sit and knit for a while.  Definitely a place not to miss.

We won’t talk about the next store.  Suffice it to say that when the words, “You know these dyers…as soon as they get good, they turn into divas and want control over their business” came up in the sales pitch…all sales went out the window.  To any retail store owners…you never know who you’re speaking to.

Onwards to Effiloché!  Billed as a “sewing room and knitting lounge”, it was chock full of yarn and fabric and notions and buttons and and and…from wall to wall to ceiling…and every nook and cranny!  Great selection of both yarn and fibre.  Including the small pile of fabric I can’t show here because a certain someone will spy quite yet, and a sweaters worth of one of my favourite shades of Tanis Fiber Arts DK merino.  Not quite sure what this is going to be yet, but can’t wait to dig into it!

Stormy...greys and deep greeny blues...mmmm....

Store atmosphere:  Warm and friendly.  Again, there’s a large seating area in the middle of the store that invites you to sit and stay a while.  Another must see.

And last on the list was A La Tricoteuse (no website), a small, neatly laid out store.  Again, a good selection of yarns (the Boy has nicknamed it “the Possum Place”…in other words, the place where he discovered yarn can come from animals other than sheep head.desk.pound).  Unfortunately, we were on the lookout for local yarns and fibres and didn’t find any here.  The selection of commercial yarns that we had already seen at the other two stores.

Store atmosphere:  Friendly proprietor.  But if you’ve already been to Ariadne and Effiloché, you’ve probably already seen most of what A La Tricoteuse has to offer.

Other highlights of our trip:

This exhibit at the McCord Museum (don’t tell anyone…I made the Boy cover me while I TOUCHED the costumes!)

A long leisurely dinner at Rosalie (where we were sufficiently sucked up to)

Not going up to this museum:

Yes...yes I am a big wimp who's scared of heights...

Being able to walk around without getting soaking wet in the rain…thanks to the underground city.

Discovering that although our mustard was nowhere to be found IN Montréal, the Montréal-made mustard can be bought from an online store in Nova Scotia that also sells…wait for it…yarn.

And Otis?  After a week of charming all the girls at the vets, he couldn’t get out of there fast enough.  That’s our boy.

Sock It To Me(rino)

In 1988, a Merino Ram sold at auction for a record price of $450,000 AUD ($408,000 CAD, or $393,000 USD). Our skeins of Merino Sock are $22 each. Not a bad deal, eh?

And now, for the main event…

The Little Swift

Available yarn can be found here. Available fibre is here.

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to be part of the naming party for Tom Bihn’s new knitting bag,  The Swift, and loved the bag so much, I wrote a review of it.

Tom Bihn has recently introduced The Swift’s little sibling:  The Little Swift.  I’ve been in possession of a Little Swift for about 2 weeks now, and it was love at first sight.

Little Swift in Kiwi/Kiwi ballistic nylon, empty

It’s lime green!  (There may have been jumping up and down when I saw it)

The Materials:

The Little Swift is currently available for pre-order (for shipment in July) in Kiwi ballistic nylon, dark brown (Cacao) waterproof Ultrasuede, Cork, and natural Vulcana Hemp/Recycled Rubber.  I’ve spent quality time with all of these materials, except the Cork.

The Ultrasuede is yummy and rich, but I find that pet hair and fluff stick to it quite easily.

The hemp/rubber is very nice.  It was softer than I expected.  I thought it would be a hair/fluff magnet — it wasn’t AT ALL.  It stood up to rubbing, friction and moisture quite well; it would survive a rainstorm/snowstorm well and won’t wear away at your clothes.

The ballistic nylon is my favourite…but that could be because I prefer colour to neutrals.  It’s durable, but soft to the touch…no wearing away at your clothing.  It withstands weather well…on one of our first dates, we had to walk around downtown Toronto in a torential downpour.  Nothing inside got wet.  And the colour is outstanding!

Size Matters:

So what’s the size like in comparison to the Swift?  Here they are lying one on top of the other:

And side by side by side:

Little Swift in Kiwi/Kiwi; Swift in Indigo/Black - both ballistic nylon

The Little Swift is 80% of the size of the Swift, but the handles are the same size!  One of my favourite things about my Swift is that I can pick it up with one hand and swing it over my shoulder.  Lots of elbow clearance, but it still sits solidly on my shoulder without slipping off.  The Little Swift is no different.  Even with a thick sweater and my heavy, down winter coat on, I can still wear the Little Swift on my shoulder.  And the padded handles are still there.  So I can carry it FULL of heavy things and my shoulder/hand is cushioned.

The size is PERFECT for me.  I’m 5′ tall and the Little Swift sits neatly under my arm and nestles into my waist.  I’ve had a few friends of different heights try it on and they all love how the bag feels on.

Side by side comparison of the regular Swift on me (5’0″ tall) and Susanne (5’9″ tall  AND Smart-Ass Knitter/World Domination artisan):

The bottom of the bag hits me at the top of my thigh.  It hits Susanne at mid-hip.

And the Little Swift:

The bottom of the Little Swift hits me at mid-hip, and ends at the top of Susanne’s hip.

But how much can you put in the Little Swift?  I’ve been using it as my “everyday” bag for 2 weeks.  There’s plenty of room for my everyday purse stuff (wallet, glasses, makeup case, etc.) plus a small knitting project and my small knitting tool-case.  Or, I can carry my everyday purse stuff, a few work files and my 13″ MacBook.

Here’s the Little Swift full:

(L-R:  front view, top view, side view)

What’s inside:  cardigan back in progress, 1 200g yarn cake, wallet, glasses, keys and book (Veronik Avery‘s Knitting 24/7) in the main body of the bag; cell phone, small makeup case, pens in one pocket; knitting tools in the other pocket.   I’ve also tried it with a Tall Yarn Stuff Sack filled with a spindle and roving instead of a knitting project.  That also fits nicely.  Big enough to carry what I need for the day, yet small enough to prevent me from overloading my bag with everything I own.  Perfect.

This is not going to be your big project knitting bag.  If used for knitting alone, you could easily fit a couple of small knitting projects (socks, mittens), a scarf or shawl project or parts of a sweater.  For storage of large projects (full sweater or large shawl), the Swift is a better choice.  I have both and use both.

Other Features:

Let’s take a look at the other features of the Little Swift.

1.  New!  All Swifts and Little Swifts have a reinforced well surrounding the bottom.  

This helps the bag sit upright on its own.  My original Swift tends to fall over unless it’s full.  The new ones don’t!

2.  Like the Swift, it has 2 inside side pockets with clear fronts.  These span the width of the bag and about halfway down the side of the bag.

inside: my knitting toolkit, inside a mini organizer pouch

For comparison, the same pouch inside the Swift’s side pocket:

3.  There are also 4 plastic grommets for hooking your Stuff Sack or keys, etc. to.  Two deep inside the bag:

located just inside the deep "V" on either side of the bag

And two on each of the handle sides of the bag:

Outside the vinyl pocket on one side; inside the vinyl pocket on the other

4.  Each Little Swift comes with a Small Stuff Sack…about an inch shorter than the regular Stuff Sack.  Tom Bihn has gone through many versions of the yarn guide inside the Stuff Sacks.  Mine came with the new version:

It’s a little carabiner!  It’s the best one yet.  Lots of room for the yarn to move around and nowhere for the yarn to get caught.  I’ve tried it with several weights of yarn from very fine silk lace to heavy, aran weight handspun.  No issues with any of them.  I was finding my yarn would occasionally get caught on the snap on the old version:

Snap version is at bottom of photo

As far as I know, both versions will be included in future Stuff Sacks, so you can choose the one that works best.  (OR!  Use both for fair isle/colourwork)

Extras:

Other accessories I’ve found useful, that work well with the Little Swift:

Clear Organizer Pouches

This is my travelling knitting toolkit.  It’s a mini clear organizer pouch containing stitch markers, a tape measure, row counter, 3 cable needles, 3 tapestry needles and a pencil.  I’ve attached my scissors to the pouch with a key strap.

I also have my keys attached to a key strap and a clear organizer wallet:

Like the clear organizer pouches, but with 2 ultrasuede dividers to help keep you organized.

This is not going to be your big project knitting bag.  If used for knitting alone, you could easily fit a couple of small knitting projects (socks, mittens), a scarf or shawl project or parts of a sweater.  For storage of large projects (full sweater or large shawl), the Swift is a better choice.  I have both and use both.

Three Years Later:

I’ve had my original Swift in Plum/Grey cordura for almost 3 years.  I’ve used it almost constantly for those 3 years.  It still looks new.  There is absolutely no change in the colour or the state of the fabric.  Amazing.  There is no sign of wear anywhere.  No broken plastic parts, no tears or dents in the vinyl pockets. There is no sign of wear anywhere.  I’ve never washed it in a washing machine (this would void the Tom Bihn warranty).  But I’ve put it through hell and back.  I’ve spilled food and drink on it, have dropped it in the mud, have been sprayed from head to toe with slush and salt by a passing truck and a bird has pooped on it.  All dirt and stains have been removed with a little soap and water or vinegar and a sponge.    It is the most versatile and adaptable bag I own.  Great for everyday, for work, for a weekend of walking around a fibre festival.  I have yet to meet its equal.  Clearly, I don’t have to.

The Sock-quel

Grease 2. Jaws 3-D. Iron Eagle IV: On The Attack. Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Leprechaun 6: Back To Tha Hood.

Sequels.

Sucked.

Well, the Curse of the Sequel is over. Dead. Kaputamundo.

Say Howdy to MCN: The Sock-quel!

MCN: The Sock-quel has the same fibre content as MCN Sock, but is a very different yarn.  It’s slightly thinner, with a looser spin, creating a yarn that’s lighter in texture and weight.  And the yardage is fantastic at 450 yds per 100g!  We think it’s great for scarves, shawls and lightweight socks.

And as for Leprechaun 7, we can only cross our fingers and hope…..

Do you suffer from the excruciating embarrassment of having a project on the go but nothing to keep it in?
