July Update 07/04/2011
 
So we got the new iPad 2 in May, right after MDSW. Love It! The iPad makes it easier to check e-mail and quickly look stuff up on the fly. But it also has a downside. I haven't been able to write blog posts. I don't know exactly what the problem is, but after weeks of trying to figure it out, I've decided I'll just have to use the iMac.

There hasn't really been much going on since I last wrote, except one thing. I met a mens' accessories designer at a cookout this weekend, and he said he needs hats yesterday. I'm not really a hat-maker, but I'll become one if it means fostering a relationship with someone who has celebrity clientele.

I've also got a dog dress that should be done tomorrow, and Ziggie just needs to be sewn. Kara's almost done as well, just the one sleeve left to go. By the end of summer I should have the pattern for Ziggie polished and ready for sale, but Kara needs some serious work.

Please bear with us as we begin redoing the floors in our home. It means less time for knitting and even less for writing. But please keep the compliments, well-wishes, and, of course, orders coming. And if you're in Cranberry, NJ the first week in August, check out my entries in the Middlesex County Fair.
 
Rarin' to Go 04/26/2011
 
I wanna go, go, go go, GO!

Just can't wait til Maryland. I've never been and am greatly looking forward to it. Except for comments on MD being too hot some years, I've heard nothing but good things about the fest. And it's free to all.

I'm also ready for warmer weather to come in and stay. Sunday was almost too warm, and got me to thinking about the lovely cotton, cot-lin, and bamboo blends I have. And the county fair. I won two 1st place awards last year, as well as one 2nd and 3rd place. I have three FOs I want to enter this year, and hope to have at least one more done by August.
 
Spring Break 04/19/2011
 
Taught my son how to use a potholder loom today. Watched him zoom through two projects and beg for more loops.
I've also seen some neat items created on the loom besides potholders. Thinking of making a bag this summer. If I do, I'll auction it off. Keep posted for details.

On the yarn front, trying to finish my big worsted-weight projects before the weather gets too hot. Then I can dive into the yarn I got and experiment for your viewing pleasure.
 
Thanks 04/10/2011
 
A big thank you to everyone who has visited my website.

I was spotted knitting in public (KIP) at my son's soccer game and received an inquiry about an LFC scarf. The design is currently pending approval by the client, so keep checking back for upcoming pics.
 
It's (A)live! 03/31/2011
 
The website is finally live!  Thank you to everyone for waiting.

This blog is the place to get my take on the knitting world. I'll share news about yarn, book reviews, and maybe even an article or two about a yarn event.

Tomorrow, I'll be stopping by Michael's to pick up some yarn for personal projects and the upcoming HUGE project for my brother. I'm taking advantage of the 25% off (including sale items) coupon they e-mailed me last weekend.
