Wow, things sure have changed since my last post in early March! How is everyone doing? Pretty much all of my 2020 events have been cancelled, which is understandable, but still disappointing. A pretty big percentage of my yearly income is from teaching, so that's hurt a bit. On the other hand, I've had more… Continue reading How are things?
Are you registered for Rhinebeck yet? Better hurry up, since lots of classes are already sold out! As of today there is one seat left in my Mosaic Knitting class, and three seats left in my Estonian Decorative Stitches class - my other two classes are sold out! Registration for SAFF has started as well… Continue reading FO Friday 7/19/19
I'm busy prepping for the Dallas Fort Worth Fiber Festival! (April 4-7th.) One of my classes is sold out, and the other only has a few seats left - and Master Knitter Day is also sold out! (There's still space in my Tisket Tasket Entrelac Baskets class if you want to add a class to… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 3/28/2019
Hi everyone! I hope 2019 is treating you well so far! I'm getting ready to go teach at a retreat in the mountains - the Kanuga Knitting and Quilting Retreat. I thought I would touch base here before I leave, and I might try to do a post of two while I'm there. On my… Continue reading WiP Wednesday, FO, and Reflections
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, and I want to wish you all a happy, healthy, wonderful 2019! My 2018 was pretty good, so I'm hopeful that my 2019 will be even better! In 2018 I published 11 new patterns - 7 in publications and 4 as self published. As well as converting… Continue reading Happy New Year!
Hi! I have a couple of WiPs I'm working on - I'm working up a set of watch cap hats for a Brioche class I'm teaching in March. I have the adult and the infant done so far - I'll cast on for the child size in the next day or two. I think I'll… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 11/21/18, G.A.L., and Happy Thanksgiving!
Hi all! I have a few WiPs on the needles this week! I'm still knitting on my Vitamin D cardigan - *almost* done! I need to wind up my last skein in order to finish it, and I just haven't done that yet. But I have about 4 more rows of the hem to work,… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 10/24/18
Hi again! Sorry it's been so long, I've been swamped lately! We survived Hurricane Florence here with no lasting damage - we got about 8" of rain all told, and some debris in our yard from the wind, and we lost power for about 4 or 5 hours, but that's about it. Several local roads… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 9/19/18
I am plugging away on my Vitamin D Cardigan - I am now at the bottom sets of radial increases. I most likely won't get a chance to finish it before my current design-in-progress yarn arrives. But I'll knit on it here and there I'm sure. Maybe, just maybe, I'll have it done in time… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 8/22/18
Hi all! I haven't touched my Vitamin D cardigan since last week - so no change there. I'm trying to get my socks done for the next Cast On issue - I'm almost to the toe on the first sock! I need to get to knitting faster because I am behind my self-imposed deadline for… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 6/20/18
