Pride Window 2011

David sports a crocheted rainbow beanie with giant pink tourie on top. He has the best seat in the house for the 2011 Halifax Pride Parade.

Rainbows abound, and giant ric-rac sprouts twisted lengths of coloured crepe paper. They reach towards the sky optimistically.

Ilga Leja's "Earth Maiden" sampled in Kauni's Effekt yarn, colourway "EQ" looks right at home. Draped over a triangular metal form it makes a cheerful yet sophisticated statement despite being placed in the background, away from direct sunlight.

"Better Together" is the motto this year.

The formally longest scarf in the world cascades down the back wall, embraces the vivid yellow Judy (repeatedly) and coils into a tumshie seat at her feet.

The swift kicks up a breeze when used which sends the paper garlands dancing.

This year, Lamby wears Red Velvet Platformed Stevie Boots, an Art Yarn Necklace and Blue Feathered False Eyelashes.

Window Dressing with Pride

Pride Week is coming to Halifax and it's Pride Parade is coming to Barrington Street. This is always a treat and shops along the route try to join in.
I see it as an excuse to gussy up the window.
Lamby sees it as a chance to dive into my shoe closet.
Here's what happened last year.

I posted this late. oops.

The Way They Were #2

Brown Sheep does know classics. The Loop carries their Burley Spun as our basic super bulky yarn. 'Classic Chunky' is a hoot.
PS I also like Laurel & Hardy for advertising knitting; I play their theme song in the store on cruise ship days.
