Happy Canada Day.

The Yarn Harlot, being very Canadian, is celebrating today, and the blog will be neglected while she shows the DB socks a good time (Note the presence of the fine Canadian Beer, of which I have a very Canadian two-four.)


Things for a knitter to do on Canada Day instead of read Yarn Harlot.

1. Knit Koigu. Koigu is Canadian, and is in fact part of our plan to take over the world. (Jim Carey is also part of this plan, which does not involve back bacon)
2. Knit Fleece Artist, Briggs and Little or Mission Falls. Canadian all the way, and really a good deal if you happen to be using American Dollars.
3. Go see the new Knitty, which while it embraces knitters around the world is put together right here in Toronto by Amy Singer. A Canadian.
4. Admire the work of Canadians Sally Melville, Lucy Neatby or Debbie New.
5. Drink 5% beer and eat poutine.
6.Knit Patons "Canadiana"
7. Order something from Fiddlesticks Knitting, which wins the official Harlot prize for best charts in a lace pattern. (Again with the exchange rate. Check out the deal you're getting)
8. Listen to a Canadian book on tape while you knit.
9. Rent a movie with a Canadian Actor or Actress. Listen to some Canadian tunes.
10. Take a whirl around the Canadian Fibre Arts ring. (The link is on the right)

Celebrate Canada!
