This morning I realized that I hadn’t written a blog post since last year! So here’s what new with me in 2012. What’s going on with you this January?
I’m leaving this Thursday to show at the TNNA Tradeshow next week in Phoenix. If you’re attending please stop by my booth, #110 and say hi, or come see me at Sample It on Friday night. See ya’ll on the flip side!
Just in time for the show I released Nebulous Shawl. I’m particularly attached to this shawl, it takes up nearly every square inch of Tilli Tomas Artisan SOCK (I believe I had ONE yard left, so you may want to have a back up skein), and the knit on border has bobbles. Lots and lots of bobbles. The main body looks like a rib but is all done with k2tog, ssk, and purl the wrong side rows. I love Tilli Tomas SOCK for lace knitting and it has become one of my staple yarns. Look for more patterns in SOCK soon!
Fluid Velocity Shawl is the first shawl from the Fickle Zen Mystery KAL. Now that the KAL is over the pattern is up for individual sale. I loved knitting with Roxanne’s Serenity Lace II SO MUCH. Cashmere, people. Cashmere. If you missed our first KAL don’t fret. We’re working up the second Fickle Zen Mystery KAL for this March! I have the yarn already and let me be the first to say it is wonderful.
One of the first things I planned for the new year was a spinning workshop with Lexi Boeger of Pluckyfluff. If you’re wondering whether or not to take one of Lexi’s classes the answer is yes. Take her class. I enjoyed it very much and it was just the boost of creativity I needed to get me through the next few months of show season.
