March Break in Waterloo

Well it’s time to tell you about our adventures in Waterloo.  By “we”, I of course mean me and the squirrels. (Tangent: what is it with that crazy law about squirrels not being able to driver’s licenses in Ontario???)

I spent Thursday night hanging out with the Uptown Knit Mob.  Otherwise known as the seedy underbelly of the Waterloo knit world.  OK, maybe only in our house.  And maybe only because we like saying “underbelly”.  The Mob hangs out in parks, restaurants and bars in downtown Waterloo on Thursday nights. I’ve been told many times of their existence, but had pretty much decided that they were, collectively, the Loch Ness Monster of Waterloo.

I can now confirm they do exist. However I believe it’s safer for all of us if I don’t post photos of the sighting. (It’s also entirely possible I was in a driving-coma and may have forgotten to take photos…)

One thing I love about travelling to Waterloo, is that instead of a hotel, they put me up in the guest suite at a downtown condo.  So I have my own little apartment for the week.

This means the Squirrels can make me breakfast every morning:

CCMZSoD make breakfastBut, um, I think this would be a mistake for our fluffy tailed friends...I told them they had to have fruit for breakfast (I told them we needed fruit)

(Anyone want to be the one to tell them it’s full of soap?)

There was teaching at Shall We Knit.  Lots of teaching of lots of wonderful knitters. On Saturday, we played with ALL the colours, trying different combinations and mixing formal colour theory with instinct and inspiration.

(note the unicorn tattoo on Cari. Um. There were many more.)

You know how to scare a really thoughtful knitter? Ask her to choose 10 colour combos in 3 minutes and would she like the duck or the crickets alarm? 😉

Sunday was all about the Cliffs of Insanity scarf. We had lots of small samples of yarns to swatch and play with. Even though I’ve written the pattern for Merino Silk Lace and Habu Silk Stainless Steel, the class is about trying the concepts with different yarns to find the combination of yarn, colour, gauge and stitch patterns that make you fall in love with your knitting:

Karen described this as “going offroading” with your knitting. That’s a great description. Making creative decisions as you go based on what your eye likes. Knowing that there’s no strict pattern that’s “right” is something I love. It’s all about you. Your taste. Your preference.

And then on Tuesday, there was my talk for the KW Knitters Guild. On Knitting Sarcasm. (I’m sorry, I truly don’t understand why the rest of you aren’t as surprised at that request as I am.)

Heather would like you to know that this is what I looked like while speaking:
Minion Kim

She would also like you to know that the podium is not to scale. It was taller than me.

I would like Heather to stuff a sock in it.

Admittedly I set myself up at the podium and Angela, the lovely Guild program coordinator had to gently let me know that perhaps the podium wasn’t such a great idea. You know. Due to the fact I couldn’t see over it.

Also: I may have mentioned to the audience that the last time I spoke at a Guild meeting, I was greeted with “I thought you’d be taller.” We have to excuse them. They were Potters.

This is what I actually looked like:

The Guild members were a lovely and suitably behaved audience and laughed in all the right places. It was my first stab at a humorous talk (stop laughing! There are people out there who think I’m very important and serious)

(For photos of the talk, please refer to the KW Knitters Guild Flickr page)

And then swarmed the yarn table:

Thank you to Shall We Knit for having me come and teach, and to the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters Guild for inviting me to speak. Thank you also to Anne for use of the last 2 photos in this post.

Spring Training: A New Base!

Remember, Smart-Ass Knitter Club sign-ups close April 14.  Only a few spots left!  Details and sign up links here.

Now that spring is about to arrive, we thought it was high time to have a new sock base come forth from the depths of our winter’s discontent. For those of you who participated in the 2011 Giftapalooza, you were given a sneak peek at today’s goodies. Response was very well received, so to the masses we say: unhuddle, and strike forth with swift wanton and merriment verily aboundeth. So sayeth the shepherd; so sayeth the flock!

MCS Sock: A squooshy blend of 75% Superwash Merino, 15% Cashmere and 10% Silk (400 yds per 115 g skein, $29) fingering weight yarn, is perfect for shawls, scarves, cowls and light sweaters.

Awright, flock to it!

Yarn Update: March 8, 2012

Hiya…

Okay, so we survived the last two weekend retreats. Now, rumour has it there may be a trunk-load o’ yarn tootling around somewhere in southwestern Ontario, but there’s still a few odds ‘n’ ends left here at the store that either fell through the cracks, slept in, or the retreaters didn’t somehow snag, so… here ya go!

A Warning: Since the delivery Honda is elsewhere in the province & those left behind at home have no vehicle, deliveries will not be making their way to the Post Office until Wednesday March 14, but may wind up there earlier if a local minion’s travel schedule works well with Otis’s. Also, since Kim is away, please do not inundate her with order requests — send any orders to: orders@indigodragonfly.ca as they get automatically forwarded to Ron & Otis at the Order Desk!!

Random Thoughts on Teaching and Speaking

1.  This week was the first week of the course I teach for the Visual Arts Diploma at the Haliburton School of The Arts.  We started with learning how to write Artist Statements.  I’m seriously considering lobbying for renaming the class Whining 101. Because it really doesn’t matter how long you’ve been an artist: writing an artist statement is hard and makes people cranky. Yet they all push through it and get through it and do a really good job of communicating what their art is about. And to top it all off, they seem really proud of themselves.

2.  I like to think it perhaps helped a little that I told them I myself am currently struggling with writing my talk for next week’s KW Knitters Guild meeting.  I’m really not convinced they believed me when I told them I was speaking about Knitting and Sarcasm.

3. They’ll learn.

4.  They also thought the slide about writing an “image list” that included an item called Cute and Cuddly Mutant Zombie Squirrels of Doom was fake too.

5.  There are still a few spots open in my classes at Shall We Knit in Waterloo ON this weekend.  Remember when I blogged about that?  Registration happens here.  I’m currently packing up little skeins of colourly goodness for students to play with.  They make me very happy.

6.  My Saturday class at Shall We Knit is a greatly abbreviated version of a course I’ll be teaching this summer at the Haliburton School of The Arts:  Dyeing to Design.  The difference?  The summer course will involve learning to dye the colours as well as design with colour.  In the most beautiful setting in the world.

7.  We may also have plans to have a dinner at our studio for students so that they can pick all of our brains. Otis is unwilling to give away his squirrel hunting secrets however.  Sorry.

8.  Of course, if you prefer, I’m also teaching Whining 101 in the summer as well…

To purchase any of the above yarn, please send me an email at orders AT indigodragonfly.ca (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which colours(s) you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $5.97 for surface mail and $7.61 for air mail. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval. Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders (including dyeing or overdyeing your own fibre or yarn) are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.
