TALK AMONGST YOURSELVES

i spent a belated mother's day weekend with my own mom. i took her to the cherry blossom high tea at the knit cafe, and re-learned to knit. this time i am going continental-style, since it looks like it's much quicker than english style. any one out there with experience in both? tips on advantages/disadvantages?water cooleras part of the Toronto Craft Alert's goal to galvanize the city's craft community, we'd like to get a bit of a discussion going. discuss any crafty topic you like... we'll be re-posting this thread every monday morning, so that the discussions can continue in the comments section of this post.

Good mornin'! Technically it's like Monday still, right?

I've lost my voice -- not in some kind of metaphorical political sense either. Literally been whispering for the last 48 hours. It's kind of funny, because then everyone around me whispers also :)

Anyway, two weeks and counting until our next vendor's table (Irish dance competition in Mississauga) so I have to get cracking.

OK, I confess I never understood the difference between the two styles of knitting, because I mostly learned from books, and in pictures it's really hard to tell. I've heard that about continental style being faster though!

Thanks for inviting us to leave comments. This is a terrific site. I teach art and I'm always trying to find supplies, not to mention attend craft shows in T.O.

I'd like to take some sort of hands-on course with my hubby this summer. He is in to woodworking, some metal work, I like just about everything else. I'd welcome all suggestions. I wouldn't want him to be the only man in whatever class we take :0

welcome morah!
I suggest looking into some jewelry or metalsmithing classes at either the devil's workshop or nanopod, or maybe some silkscreening classes at the contemporary textiles studio... there are a ton of classes in the city - just search for the "get schooled" posts in the blog, or check out the links on the right side of the page.
