Panic on the Streets of London. Morrissey is considering a career change. The former frontman of the Smiths
has been approached by the Animal Welfare Party to run as their candidate in the London Mayoral race, and he doesn't have a decent Jumper to wear.
The Canadian boy who lives in a cabin and loves to knit has inspired the runways in Paris, New York and Milan during fashion week. The Jumpsuit is making another comeback, thanks to Cabinboyknits. "I don't think it ever really left" said the Canadian outdoorsman. "It's like the neighbour who stays around the cabin after too many beers and doesn't know when to leave".
As winter approached I was inundated with toque requests. While searching for patterns, I was pulled in a number of unexpected directions. The first path led me to Sylvia Olsen, a great Canadian writer, storyteller, knitter and designer. I have dedicated a separate entry to her incredible work and our West Coast First Nation knitters. Like thousands of other knitters on Ravelry, I happened upon the baa-ble hat by Donna Smith.
