webs logoWell, this is exciting! Our own Jillian is very happy to announce she’ll be teaching at WEBS’ first Spinning Retreat. The event, scheduled for September 29- October 1 also features beloved teachers Beth Smith, Amy King and Abby Franquemont. More info here.


Fab interview with Pussyhat project co-founder Krista Suh, in Paste Magazine. What’s wonderful about this is to see coverage beyond the usual craft-focused outlets.


A knitter in Brighton, UK, is seeking assistance from local knitters to help her create a double-decker-sized picture of one of Brighton’s famous piers. Designer Nina Dodd (a.k.a The Duke of Woolington) has joined forces with local bus operator Brighton & Hove Buses for this venture. It requires 5,000 10cm squares, in nine different colours, and they will be assembled and displayed on the side of a bus, driven around town for all to enjoy! Nina is hoping to recruit local knitting bus-riders, but will be happily for all contributions, I am sure.

This isn’t Nina’s first bus-related knitting project. It’s worth clicking through to the article to see her bus-seat-cozy-sweater project, that she created for a fashion shoot.


It’s the Edinburgh Yarn Festival this weekend. Are you coming? I’m going, and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ll be doing a book signing at lunchtime on the Saturday in the Purlescence booth. Come and say hello!
