You’ve heard me mention my friend Marcy from time to time. She and I met through knitting and have been close friends for years now, so close that we have a standing trip every year where I travel from my coast to her coast and spend around 10 days with her and her family. During that time we make our annual trek to Rhinebeck along with spending a day at WEBs.
This past year we did both of those things but also got to throw in a weekend in NYC. We had a list of things that we were determined to do and I think we crossed almost everything off that list. We didn’t get to eat a hotdog from a street vendor but as my mother used to say you always need to have something to go back for.
Needless to say we had a great time, walked our legs off (only took one cab ride the entire weekend) and plotted and planned what our next adventure would be.
Yup, she and I are collaborating on a pattern line and we’ve just released our first pattern: Between Friends.
We both got yarn for two of these each during our last #EastCoastWestCoastAdventure, one from Purl Soho (WOOLFOLK) and one from Miss Babs (Kaweah). We’re pretty excited about this new adventure. We both have been designing under our own labels and will continue to do this but now we will be working together on some really great things. We talk to each other so many time each day that it’s like we live next door to each other, only on opposite coasts, so we thought we’d give this a try.
We already have so many ideas there won’t be much time for sleeping. In fact, I called Marcy today with another idea and told her to put it on the list. She said, “We have a list?” I said, “We do now.”
So I hope you will follow us on these adventures as we design our way through life. See our tagline? Where will they take you today? I can’t wait to see where we go!
