Central Team Captain...checking in!
I triple dog dare you to judge me - THERE IS SILK BLENDED WITH EVERY LUXURY FIBRE KNOWN TO MAN IN THIS PICTURE
Thank god it's not all mine...but I did get to touch it all.
I just got dizzy looking at this picture.
My team started at Knit-o-matic where I picked up some beautiful Fleece Artist Kid Mohair/Silk blend and Lilly (a missing teammate) I managed to leave ye ol' monstrous camera behind so pictures lack until this point in Kensington market outside of Lettuce Knit - this is where all three teams congregated.
Eventually it was time to start the trek to the The Beach. It was really hard to get a full picture of 30 of us standing on Queen waiting for a streetcar. It was AWESOME to distress the normally nonplussed hipsters that cruise Queen West by the veritable herd of knitting knitters.
Then the real rabble rousing began. The Star sent a photographer and a reporter to the event and the story was in today's paper. I think we freaked them both out. Though the reporter was knitting up a storm by this point.
Elizabeth has managed to enthrall men on every major drinking/public knitting event we've been on. She is Aphrodite with yarn and needles. It's magical to watch.
