I wanted to take this opportunity to invite knitters and crocheters in the Pittsburgh area to the Shadyside Stitch ‘n Bitch group. We’re a small, informal group. No dues, no official membership, and no meeting minutes; just some knitting, chatting, coffee, and pastries.
Who we are: A small group of fiber enthusiasts.
Who is invited: Knitters and crocheters of any skill level.
Day and time: Every Wednesday (rain or shine) from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.
Location: Coffee Tree Roasters on Walnut Street in Shadyside.
We also have a virtual group on Ravelry, so check us out!
Saturday morning I dyed some yarn with Kool-aid, and it sure turned out bright. A little too bright for my liking. It’s lace weight yarn, and I really won’t wear a bright coral red shawl or scarf. Not even if I knit up the lovely Annis with this yarn. I think the color is also a bit too distracting for me to design something with it. Ho hum. Too bad it isn’t sock yarn, I would so love some socks in this color, just not a shawl… So I will probably overdye it with a darker color to tone down the brightness. Let’s hope I don’t turn it into a muddy olive drab green or something by mistake!
