Tap-tap-tap: Blog news you can use

Claudia is this >< close to her goal for the National MS Society Bike Tour, coming up on June 24th -- check it out, there are some great prizes to be won.

There has been some sew-up action for the Warming Grace project!  Check that out, too.  Cynthia reports that pink and blue squares continue to arrive daily, and every single one will eventually find its place in a very special blanket.

We know how special those blankets can be.  ; )

New (to me) blogs I'm enjoying:  Peace & Sereknitty, Knit Me Somethin' Good (and, oh yeah, Robyn says to check out the new MAGKNITS!).

While Claudia sets herself to pedaling her bike, there will be some pedaling of a different kind also commencing...

Did you find the directing sign on the
Straight and narrow highway
Would you mind a reflecting sign
Just let it shine within your mind
And show you the colors that are real

Someone is waiting just for you
Spinnin' wheel, spinnin' true

lyrics from "Spinning Wheel"
Blood, Sweat & Tears
(D. Clayton-Thomas)


Y'all know my friend Cara, the "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" Girl with the fancy, new, go-fast car, who has wrangled with the red tape department and procured a park permit -- an NYC park permit, no less -- a single permit for a single thing -- the Great American SPIN-IN, Cherry Hill Fountain, Central Park, NYC, June 24th (so don't be selling stuff or bringing your cars or putting your wheel on the grass or drinking booze and/or doing nonprescription drugs or letting your pet run wild and free or playing your boom box too loud or cooking stuff because those things ALL require craploads of other permits)!  Be there or be square, like me... square, maybe, but wearing a fabulous new T-shirt, and you can, too!  I'll definitely be there in spirit.  ; )

Also, if you can, please consider a contribution to Heifer International and then letting Cara know so you can be entered in the Great American Raffle!  All the Spin-Out Prize Patrol details are here.  I'm thinking chicks, myself...  I know that llamas and goats and sheep and rabbits are all much more "knitterly" with their fiber rather than feather coats, but I've been known to cluck a time or two and might have even been called a mother hen once or twice, so I think the chicks are a fine fit.

This weekend, heading north.  I think I might try that Saturday Market Bag from the new MagKnits this weekend... yeah, I'll work on my sock, too... and finish Mack's sweater (birthday next weekend!).  See you on the other side.  And have a great weekend!

Ooooh. Jealous of your weekend destination! Have a blast!

You are too cool for school! Thank you! And I've been singing that song for days. Have a fantastic weekend!

You know, every time I read one of your posts, I am just so impressed by the amount of time I'm sure it took for oyu to put the post together. You almost always have several links in the post, as well as pictures, and I just so appreciate the time you put into it. I hope you have a great weekend! Oh, and I did want to say that your irises are lovely.

You sweet thing for mentioning my blog! And of course I flipped out last night and swore off dealing with blogger and changed my site to typepad today! Is that good kharma or bad? Bad timing? I am also loving that rug in MD Knitting--the one with the fabric edges is really neat--okay birthday gifts with bathmitts, soap and a bathtowel. how great would that be!

I too am envious of your destination. It was in the 90's here, at 9am. You know how in the winter you go out and start the car and let it warm up before everybody gets in? I have to do that with the ac in the summer. The heat isn't so bad, but when you go outside it feels like you're being smacked with a hot wet sweater. UGH! Enough with the whining, I can do it on my own, newly moved blog. Have a great time up north, catch you on the flip side!

have a great weekend Vicki!

I can't wait until the 24th. I've scored myself a t-shirt and a spot on the train for Saturday in NYC! (If you and a friend want to go Amtrak use the promotional code V383 -- you get 50% off of one fare.) Woo-Hoo!

Hello - just found you by accident looking for coupons for Patternworks - oops. Wow - I'm originally from WI, now living west of Chicago (I know, but the job is good).

Wanted to let you know about a fabulous little shop in Mayville WI, Loose Ends. I ran in to it while taking my nephew to Karate next door.

I love the Williamsro sweater - is that your pattern?

Barbara
