Good Evening, let's get right to it! On the Interwebs BC folk are busy...

Steve Malcolm (AKA Mr.Hugzzz) released the first episode of his traveling knitting show, It Takes Balls to Knit

Sylvia McFadden just released Wind & Sea a sideways biased triangle shawl with lace throughout.

Amanda Kaffka released a fuzzy, classic pullover with subtle balloon sleeves called the Grandes Manches pullover

Andrea Rangel and Gauge Dyeworks announced their third year of collaborating with a summer yarn and pattern club together.

Tin Can Knits released Love Note, a fuzzy, lacy yoke pullover in La Bien Amée yarn (above).

Jenny of Sweater Freak Knits is having a Mystery Knit Along for a mostly garter stitch accessory design called Desert Ripple.

Caroline Dick released a uniquely constructed, geometric shawl with a wrap-and-synch-hole called Starry Starry Night

I expanded our Community Highlights to be BC-wide! So, if you are a BC-based textile artist, designer or business sign up to be featured. Community Highlights are written by the participant, so we get to hear about them in their own words. The most recent Community Highlight on the blog is about Knox Mountain Knit Co. who are based in the Okanagan. Check it out!
