Jeez, I can’t believe it was BEFORE I left for Rhinebeck that I posted last. What was it that John Lennon said? “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans”? Yeah, that. And believe me, there are a lot of plans being made.
I’m not even going to tell you how things went down on my east coast trip. I’ll save that for another post. Just know that it was one of the best trips of my life. More on that later.
Up first, Silver Fern is now available for purchase!
This is a design that I did for the Miss Babs Knitting Tour. You all know how much I love gradients and Babs does them very well. Go here to see the yarn. Gorgeous!
I’ve been busy with a couple of new designs that are humming along. The first is Wanda Estelle, named after my wonderful great-aunt Wanda. I’ve had this one going for some time and just haven’t been able to get it released. You know, life….. No photos yet, but soon. I hope (fingers crossed) to have it done and ready for sale before Thanksgiving.
I’m also working with my BFF Marcy on a collaborative design that should be out soon. We found some yarn when we were together in New York and in about 15 minutes we came up with what we wanted to do, and do it together we are! I can’t wait for you to see it! Soon!!
I’ve also started teaching a new class! Designs from Nature and Architecture is the class I taught in April at the Strung Along Retreat (know there as Walk on the Wild Side – where we did take a hike looking for inspiration). There is no hike involved in this class but people do bring photos that they want to use for inspiration. We look at how to translate what we see out there into stitch patterns. It’s great fun and I love teaching this class. If you think your LYS might be interested in this email me! If you are interested in taking the class I will be teaching it at For Yarn’s Sake in Beaverton tomorrow. (go here and scroll down for information on signing up!)
I’m also so happy to tell you that I have been asked to teach at Madrona again! You can go here to see the class schedule. I have 2 different 3 hours classes and a 90 minute mini class! I’m super excited about this. Madrona is one of my favorite events!
Last, I’ll be leaving for our next Strung Along retreat next Thursday. Emergency 911 is our theme and it’s going to epic. I can’t even talk about how many fantastic things we have planned. Look for info on our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter at @StrungAlongLLC to see what we are up to!
Wow, this all makes me tired. But it’s a good kind of tired! And just around the corner….Christmas. I think I need to lie down…
