I had a busy (for me) weekend. I’ll talk about Saturday tomorrow (maybe the yarn will be dry by then!). So on to Sunday, when I met lots of bloggers at the Twin Cities Knitters’ Picnic. Tragically, in my efforts to contain my “cargo” to my tiny bicycle bag, I remembered my knitting but forgot my camera… Whoops. Um, so just imagine 25 or so knitters, sitting around on blankets under a tree in the Lake Harriet Rose Garden, knitting and eating and talking and laughing.

Here are the knitbloggers I met:

Kelle of Knits and Giggles
KnittyMama (I met KnittyBaby! And Little Man! And the Husband Who Has No Blog Nickname Yet!)
Christy of Purling Away, owner of the Minnesota Knitters webring (Christy took pictures!)
A new resident of Minnesota, Moraie Knitting (tragically welcomed by the evil hailstorm of last week)
Rina of Rahardjo Knits (Rina took pictures!)
Nancy of Clicking Sticks
Catherine of Yogurt and Granola
Melissa of HyveTyrant
Rebecca of Onspock
Tipper of Daily Fiber Therapy

Hopefully I didn’t miss anybody!

SRP Update
Tool and Die (323 pages) and Nail Biter (260 pages) by Sarah Graves. The two most recent Home Repair Is Homicide mysteries – with a very startling development in Nail Biter! I sure didn’t see that coming…

Jerry is having a contest to test her Random Knitting Theory #1. Deadline is Friday, September 1.

Here’s my entry for the contest: I knit continental, sometimes combination and sometimes using Norwegian purling, depending on the situation. Oh yeah, and it’s awfully hard to take pictures of your own hands!

Chaos could not be reached for comment on today’s blog post.

  1. I finally got around to rinsing mine out this morning – um, that red? You should see how much washed out!!!! Glad yesterday was fun.

  2. That looks like a lot of fun – went over to Rina’s pictures and you all see to be having a great time 🙂

    I can’t tell one type of knitting from another, except to say they’re different. Good job taking no-handed pictures! Chaos doesn’t want you to find out he was on the computer with his secret admirer while you were at the picnic, huh?

  3. Hey, sounds like a cool time! Lorraine and I just get together over the phone…which is pretty cool too.

    Norwegian Purl…hmmm, can’t say I’ve ever heard of that before?! Here’s a dumb question – is it hard?

  4. Chris- Don’t you find yourself doing the weirdest things in the name of blogdom? At least there’s a reason- I’d probably be doing odd stuff anyway.
    Not a bib in sight- Chaos must be relieved.

  5. You have lovely hands! And such a diverse knitterly style. I hope Chaos is OK 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my blog and entering my little theory contest!

  6. I’m so glad you had fun. We went to the State Fair. To make up for not going last week. So I’m 0-2 on knitting events this week. Sigh.

  7. I LOVE the cats between the doors! hee hee hee

    We lost two cats this year. One got hit by a car and one suffered from heart failure–Eve, who we had in MN.
