Stitch and Bitch
We haven't had a stitch and bitch in a while Or at least I have not been able to attend one. I am proposing that there be one.
I have a nice Cafe' in Greenlake for a meeting location. Cafe' Maree. Coffee, Pastries, good music (canned), and free wi-fi. Now All we need is a time. the only Day on the weekend I am free is sundays Can be morning can be evening I'm flexible.

Ahso. I bought myself a treat a few weeks back. Four ounces (about 280 yards, according to the label) of "Little Lola," 100% merino in the Toni Morrison colorway. It seems sportweight to me. The trick, however, is figuring out what to do with this lovely stuff.

I was thinking a scarf, more for decoration than warmth. Maybe rippled, maybe ribbed.. I don't want it to curl. I don't want it to be boring. I also don't want it to be too flashy. I'm thinking elegant. But I don't know what I DO want to do with it. Purchasing more isn't an option - this was an impulse splurge, and I can't afford to get any more, so 280 yards is it.

Anybody have any suggestions? I'm not dead set on a scarf, that was just my first instinct. Other options are of course welcome. :)

a ripple pattern that can be knit over 15 or 20 stitches, for a scarf? *hopeful* Anyone? Anyone?

(community pimping)
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is, join invent_improve and tell everyone about it.

This covers everything from re-designing knitting needles to inventing a new way to water plants. I'd love to see a ton of people here adding ideas and thoughts, so spread the word...

I started off with my complaint on knitting needles from Saturday's Stitch and Bitch. Bring on the topics!

And I made a super-cute hat for my godbaby.

Now I'm just trying to find a decent worsted-weight/chunky yarn bootie pattern, so I can make a pair of booties to match. Or is it just not possible?

Quick question:
Can you reccommend a good craft supply store, preferably not on the East Side? The only one I know of is the JoAnn's Fabrics up on Aurora and, um... 150th or therabouts. There used to be one near there, on Greenwood I think, but they went out of business and the building now houses a piano store. I'm particularly interested in any craft stores that have dollmaking stuff.

Another quick question: would anybody be terribly offended if I brought My Little Ponies to work on for the stitch & bitch? I've been working on a couple, and they're pretty much the only crafty things I have going at the moment. :]

We still on for the Jan 31st S&B, as advertised?

I'll volunteer to bring panini makings -- bread, cheese, tomatoes, basil, etc.

Looks like Jan 31st, my place, is most workable for folks - who's in?

Stitch and Bitchers! I hereby submit two weekend dates for a possible S&B: Jan 24th and Jan 31st. Any thoughts or hosting ideas?

house/cat sitting?
x-posted to seattle_crafts and my personal journal

My mom is in the process of buying a house in Bellevue. She's going to be moving her stuff up in mid-December, as well as her three cats. She'll be here for a good chunk of December, but right now she's planning on working (back in CA) a good chunk of January. Her brother was going to live in the hosue for a month, but that is probably going to fall through. So she is looking for someone who would be interested in staying in the new place with her cats for most of January. Her main criteria are that you don't smoke in/around the house, and that you don't trash the place... and that you like cats. She'd prefer to have someone I know and can vouch for, but friend-of-a-friend is probably OK. It's also possible to have someone just do this during the week and we could take over on weekends (when we wouldn't have to get Philip to school) if that would be preferable. I haven't talked with her about how much she'd be willing to pay for this yet. The house is approximately at SE 29th St. and 162st Ave. SE. Pretty close to I-90 at Eastgate. There are bus lines along 161st to Crossroads mall and the Eastgate park&ride.

If her boss continues to piss her off as much as he did yesterday, though, she'll retire a couple of months early and this will all be moot...

Put 'em here in comments, please, so's we can kinda keep 'em together...

Did we ever set a time for this little hoe-down tomorrow? I assume afternoon-ish, but I can never tell. If I don't make it, blame the car and send someone for rescue.

Two Questions:
Since I've not been here before...

1) In regards to the food, is there anything folks are allergic to? I believe at least one person is a vegetarian, correct?

2) elynne, are you going to be there, and do you need a ride?

Finally!
We keep forgetting to post about this, but Joyce and Jill and myself have elected September 27th (4th Saturday in September) as the date for our next stitch-n-bitch. Who's with me us?

Want to hang out?
I'm suggesting a last minute craft and chat (or just chat) at Cafe Maree Wednesday night at 7pm.
I'll be there with my knitting and for conversation for anyone who chooses to show.
