Hi all! I hope you had a lovely 4th of July! We went camping all weekend and had a wonderful time.
Last night I did a random number generator to pick a winner for the ‘Luxurious Lace’ book… and the winner is…
Beth Rudo! I’ll contact you privately to arrange delivery of your prize – Congratulations! Thank you everyone for playing along!
I’m kind of stuck on my sweater – I know I told you last time that I’d be showing you a finished sweater by now. Well, I didn’t count on the fact that I need some buttons – and I can’t do the buttonholes until I know how many and how big the buttons are. And I started on the buttonhole band first. Oops. So, here it is in its *almost* done state, just waiting on me to find the perfect buttons… (and to block it – it needs a good blocking!)
In the meantime I’ve started another pair of plain socks. In a bright yarn that is totally not usually me, no less. I couldn’t pass this skein up in March at the Carolina Fiber Fest when I was there teaching – it called to me for some reason (colorway is ‘Galaxy’.) 🙂 So now it is going to be a pair of funky socks!
I’m also swatching for a couple of design calls – I have one good idea for each – and about one week left to get the swatches done and my proposals in, keep your fingers crossed!
Oh, and I passed the first Lesson in the Tech Editing course – on to Lesson Two!
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
