cbc scavenger hunt, oh my!

[no title]

Oh, such fun!  Ottawa celebrates its 150th anniversary this year.  The CBC folks have cooked up a neat scavenger hunt, to be held Satruday May 14th.  Ironically, many of the prizes are trips to Montreal.  Interesting...

Ottawa through the eyes of the cbc
...Still working on the felted bag, and am happily enjoying my reunion with wool.  I'm using this opportunity to try my (left) hand at continental knitting.  After only a few minutes of feeling like I'm learning how to knit all over again, my speed ramped right back up to my regular right-hand style, even a little faster.  Here's a great step-by-step guide on continental knitting. I'm looking forward to trying this out for ribbing and other purl-inclusive stitches.  This is the main reason I decided to give this continental mish-mash any attention--moving back and forth between knits and purls in English style is lame-o slow.
