jerasue @ 10:59 am: Stitchin' Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago areas...
Anyone up for an area-wide Stitch 'n' Bitch (and the like) meetup?!

I think it would rock off our proverbial socks!

I'm thinking April or May-ish.

Sleep on it and email me.

I'd love to go to a stash swap... I have a bunch of really nice yarn I don't particularly like... has anyone ever organized one around here?

orora25 @ 12:33 pm: Shameless call for donations
I'm a volunteer at Tree House Animal Foundation, one of the oldest shelters in Chicago. Tree House is a no-kill, cageless shelter, specializing in taking in sick, injured and stray cats. This year at our annual holiday open house/fundraiser, Lights of Love, we're adding a craft table to sell wares made by our volunteers. Guess who's heading up the committee to solicit donations. While I'm new to this group I know that there are a great number of animal lovers who also happen to be knitters. Anyone who would be interested in donating a finished item for us to sell would earn my eternal thanks, many kitty purrs, and some excellent karma; you will also be more than welcome at the event itself to see what Tree House is all about. For more information about donating an item, please email me.

Thanks!
Amy

my name is elizabeth and i'm moving to chicago in november. I currently work in a yarn shop and i have become quite close with all of my ladies, and i would love to work at another yarn shop in the city. i've been looking online and i have yet to find any that have the cozy, close knit atmostphere i'm used to. i reaize that most yarn shops aren't online, but if you guys could help me find a quaint little shop in the city i would love it! i've done some spinning too, which is a delight.
i'll post some of my accomplishments next time! good luck to all of you!

mladymaru @ 10:47 pm: Very Tall Socks=Very Stiff Socks?
Hello! I'm working on Knitty.com's Very Tall Socks. I was looking through the pattern, and I read that the gauge is U.S. #2?! That sounds like it would make the socks as stiff as a board, considering the suggested gauge for the suggested yarn is #8! Has anyone else tried this pattern? Did you modify it at all? What worked for you? Help, please?
