I am an equally poor recent graduate, so I’m afraid that all I can do is suggest the Megabus to you. It will take much longer than flying, especially since making a connection in New York would probably be necessary, but it would likely cost you well under $100. Much easier to raise, I think.
Best wishes, and hope this works out for you!
Okay, so, hi. My name is Rory, and I have this friend in Toronto who means the world to me, Tally (or Sarah). Late this Saturday night, she posted a suicide note on her tumblr. As of yet, we haven’t heard back from the Toronto police with an update, but… she’s going to…

Ha … Guess I’m not on hiatus. Day 5’s post can’t happen yet, though. I have (gasp!) no knitting on me …
In honor of the blogger “knitmeapony” aka “actuallyknittingafriggingpony”, and of my sister, for whom I tried to knit Her Little Pony, but instead knitted Ponytronicus, Death Pony from the Stars: Christmas Edition
It’s a bit late to say so now, but I guess I’ll have to take a break from posting. I’ll resume with Day 5 as soon as I can catch up to my life …
In the meantime, thanks for all the laughs and happy-making things you post!
Day 4: Inspiration from Outdoors
A rare exception to my normal MO, these are not items of my creation; rather, they are an expression of what inspires me, and what I like about knitting. It can be the foundation of a relaxing day outside, or it can be your activity of choice outside. Perhaps one could conceivably even knit in a knitted chair, or on an afghan — who knows? It can be large-scale, organized sculpture, or a small-scale graffiti “tag” or “yarn bomb”. I’ll save the so-called “yarn bombing” for my home, and maybe for my local yarn shop and a few other establishments willing to display my work, but over time, I must let out my inner graffiti artist. I strive to always be colorful, and always irreverent.
Darnit, the hat isn’t showing on the other post … so here it is! My very silly friend in an equally silly hat, in his favorite color.
But not quite as silly as Jayne’s hat from Firefly. I need to make that, too …
Day 3: An Old FO (Finished Object)
I have two here for you. They aren’t old, but the hat is the oldest thing I have a picture of — a birthday gift from my silly, orange-loving friend. Plus, the recorder case is just awesome.
Day 2 - Craft Tools
Knitting needles. In steins. Need I say more?
Day 1 - You in Action
Finally, a picture, and a more or less accurate depiction at that. Not so much that I do all of my knitting in bed (although I do often), but that I am very relaxed about it. The yarn and the needles will go anywhere with me that I think I can get away with taking them — across hundreds of miles on trains and buses (or just in other people’s cars), into the teacher’s lounge, to D&D, to his band practices, to my practices, or even into a bar. It will come with me as often as many people take a laptop or a book with them. If someone finds it odd that I am knitting so publicly, they are usually doubly fascinated to find out that it’s anything but the scarf they imagined it to be. Just wait until I actually start making beer- and wine-related projects in a bar …
OK, I really do want to start the month of craft photos (albeit a late start), but for “#1 - You in Action”, I haven’t yet been in action while not wearing pajamas, at least not in action with actually knitting instead of detailing a project, and definitely not while someone else has actually felt like taking a picture.
Also, I don’t think I have ever actually used anything I knitted, since I primarily make gifts. I guess I have about half a month to finish an object that I will use before “#17 - Last FO You Used”.
Ugh. How can I be so frustrated over this when “#2 - Craft Tools” will be the most awesome picture ever?
