So many inspirations..

SnB Linz ladies are the lovliest, and I´m not saying that only because I got brilliant presents for my birtday, the directly yarn related of which are: handdyed sock yarn especially for me in my favourite colours, a tiny knitted keyring-sock, and a crocheted and felted fortune cookie with a Mae West quote inside ("too much of something can be wonderful" - doubtlessly referring to my stash)

 Furthermore and on very short notice we found out about an Urban Knitting workshop at deja-vu Festival and two of us actually managed to attend. pics here as well. It was great fun and we met Janis and tschoerda there.

One of the books Janis brought with her was the German version of the Knit the City book. In one of the pictures there actually is my handbag, athough I myself was slightly out of the frame. So I´m almost in the book. Great! Not so great was the sunburn I took home that day.

And I still wonder if the guy from Graz was the same I met at the Kraftwek Lambach protest-camp a gazillion years ago.
Knitting with ten or so strands of yarn reminded me of the extreme knitting video here. I love the way the 1000 strands of yarn are hanging down that balustrade.
I also found another one, which made me think that this kind of maxi-knitting only works in English, not kontinental. I could never lift and move the needle and blanket for every stitch. Not strong enough..

Oh and another funny thing I found on ravelry:  a knitting daily video of Tom Hanks playing a practical joke on Julia Roberts - hilarious.

In addition to our upcoming meetings we will visit webermarkt Haslach, although the knitting on the train will not be possible due to rail replacement bus service. Maybe we should go by car after all?
