Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto

robotsIf you were to walk by the Knit Café today – this is what you’d see.  We’ve had quite a few gawkers since we redecorated the window, which leads me to believe that this display’s denizens are real lookers!

Iwona and I have been busy stitching up these robot stuffies! They were pretty satisfying to make and I feel like I expanded my repertoire of crochet skills in the process. If you would like to join in the robot-making-fun we are teaching a class.

love robotWhen choosing the critter to feature in our Amigurumi Class, we were inspired by our work dressing up this guy →
the Lovebot outside Scooter Girl on Roncesvalles Ave.
This knit-bomb, assembled in June 2014, has since been put out of commission, leaving room for more woolly robots to take up the slack. Come and help us make some in May, or if you are an expert crocheter you can find the pattern by Stacey Trock HERE

Robots Love Sweaters!

Have you ever wondered – is it really possible to make a sweater for a robot in only one day? Well I have the answer, and that answer is YES!
It was on a very pretty Saturday June 14th when Roncey was Rockin, that we embarked on this community knit project.  Thanks to everyone who stopped and did a bit of knitting with us.  Many hands and needles surely helped us reach our goal.

This Lovebot by Matthew Del Degan is here to spread the joy, and now this little guy can do it a little cozier with his brand new hand knit jumper. Do go by and visit him.

He is camped outside Scooter Girl the tremendously fun kids shop #187 Roncesvalles – just a hop skip and a jump from The Knit Cafe.  We thank them for generously allowing us to dress their robot.

There are many of these adorable robots around the GTA.  If you would like to know more about their mission then have a look at the Lovebot website.  I think you’ll be happy you did.

Sweaters don’t last too long on the rough and tumble city streets, so go check out our little friend soon, and please let us know when you do.

Craftily yours
