Belated Happy Birthday.....


.......to my business!


June 2nd just came and went and I totally for got to celebrate. June 2nd 1982 was the day I went downtown Toronto and registered Carolyn M. Barnett Designs and started the mad knitting career with hand knitting.

I'm still kicking! (albeit slowly just now).




This charming bit of knitting was what I knit for Janet Morton's knitted squares exhibition at the Textile Museum in Toronto a few years ago. Anyone was welcome to submit a knitted square from 3" x 3" up to 18" x 18" (I chose the larger) with a date knit in. The date had to be significant and the piece had to be accompanied by a letter explaining the significance. It was an amazing exhibition. I went with my Mum.

Well, my Dad turned 82 on Monday the 4th, I'll count that lelftover piece of cake as my celebratory piece.
