An Announcement from the Fibre Floozy

Hi all to the Knit Rabble,

Guess what? Knitting can be diabolical. At least it was on an old episode of the Avengers titled the Girl from Aunty, highly trained assasins using knitting needles as weapons where running amok and trying to kill John Steed, luckily Emma Peel was around to foil them. Much of the episode revolved around a secret society of knitters, who would come together in the afternoon to tipple, plot and knit.

In MORE IMPORTANT NEWS (yes I know I am shouting) but...

The lovely Deborah at Passion Knit and a TTC Knit-along Newbie Store is having her summer sale starting June 1st. Yes, I know I was on a yarn diet and I have fallen off the wagon. Who can resist a sale featuring Louisa Harding, Rowans Glimmer Print (the Greek influence) and Debbie Bliss's silk among others. The sale goes on for a WHOLE MONTH to make room for new winter merchandise arriving in late July and August including:


For those of you that don't know Passion Knit is up town at Yonge and Lawrence ( 3232 Yonge to be exact) but it's worth the trip for us South of Bloor knitters, Heidi a.k.a. Strick Chick, who is North of Bloor haunts the place! Deborah a self-professed "Yarn and Stitch" gal who needs "great yarn to have great stitch" started Passion Knit back in 1993 during the recession (hey knitters know no economic set backs!) out of her passion (obession?) out of her passion for knitting.

In her almost decade and a half of running Passion Knit she has inspired many to "take up needles" including rumour has it, the owner of the Naked Sheep. Every Christmas sees knitters popping in to pick up yarn for last minutes projects and dropping off thank you cards and gifts. One long time knitter now 80 has been bringing her mince tarts since she opened. Is that amazing or what?

Comments:
I am so happy that I found your site. It appears we have some things in common besides knitting. Thought you might want to be the first to see the pattern for the triple lindee!
