Knitting Episcopalians

Cathy emailed me with a great idea today, to start a ring for knitting (blogging) Episcopalians. So without further ado, you can join us by clicking on the new link in my sidebar.

We have a blog set up as well at Knitting Episcopalians (cleverly subtitled "knitting the Via Media together," we'll put links on there as we get more organized, and especially point you to a knitting retreat at Kanuga this January.

If we get tremendously organized, we could have a photo gallery of completed objects, so that people without a blog could still send us stuff to post.

Maybe we can organize knit-ins at General Convention or other Episcopal gathering times/places.

General convention will be in my town this time. I am definitely up for a knit-in.

Hi Steph--welcome! Maybe we could all wear t-shirts that read "I'd rather be knitting."

At 9:02 PM, Blogger Cathy said...

Sounds like t-shirt in the making!

I like blogrings... but I'm not sure I'm qualified for this one. I don't knit anything particularly complicated, and I really never blog about it, because my knitting isn't that interesting.

Eh, just post about something you knit every once in a while. Posting on the blog is a great way of keeping track of what I've done, interesting or not. In fact, I use it as incentive to actually FINISH objects.

We'd love you in the ring. The more the merrier!

It is all your fault and I am blaming you with every stitch I struggle through! (LOL) I'm much faster now that I remembered how to hold the needles. I just wish I could count.

I went to visit my daughter this weekend and she wanted to learn how to knit. We visited the local craft shop and three of us came home with spanking new needles, yarn for a beginners project and high hopes. That includes my 14 year old son! (Don't tell him I told!) And, my 8 year old grandson came home with a crochet hook and blue yarn.

You don't knit anything interesting?

I can get excited about a plain washcloth - I have knit enough of them for charity this fall! Yes, please join us!

Knitters are an enabling bunch of folks....

I told the true story of my fall into knitting on my blog. (Next thing I know, we'll be knitting prayer shawls through meetings. LOL)

Worse things could happen. :)

At 6:46 PM, Blogger Cathy said...

Annie, will you join us in the ring?

At 11:57 AM, Blogger Annie said...

I'll think about joining. As I knit, the guilt mounts over the quilt that I'm not making any progress on. My daughter would like it before her paint gets old. :)

I wish I could knit! I crochet big squares and that's about it. The stitches I've cast on my knitting needle ends up never leaving it. Maybe I'll take lessons? BTW, blogging is completely foreign to me but I love reading them. FHS

Hi Violet,

Hands-on instruction is definitely the way to go. I paid for an hour at a local yarn shop and it was definitely worth it.
