Bam, said the lady

It always comes down to this. It is one thing to have a finished knit that you’re ready to show off, it is another to wrangle a photography session for said knit. I can’t resist giving you a sneak peek, though, as this pullover for Tanis Fiber Arts is one of the things that’s been keeping me quite busy over the last month and I’m darned proud of it. I’m hoping to be able to post full details on this tomorrow, then on Friday show you the second pattern of mine that will be available at the Frolic, this one a mitt pattern for the Sweet Sheep.


Speaking of the Toronto Knitter’s Frolic, for anyone who will be stopping by there, I’m happy to report that Michelle at the Sweet Sheep will also have kits for my Wicked/Yellow Brick Road knee high socks, and Tanis will also have patterns available for my Rendezvous cardigan, Nouveau gloves, as well as the Neptune High argyle socks.

Busy times ahead this weekend! I’m looking forward to seeing all the people and yarn.

So true it’s almost not funny

I went by The Purple Purl on my last expedition to the big city on Friday, and they have some wonderful new signage in their washroom. I don’t know where it is from exactly, though, which is a bummer because if I did, I would tell everyone I know, and probably buy ten copies.


It’s funny because it’s true. I have spent the last few weeks knitting like a fiend trying to finish up a few design projects and finally the finish line is in sight and I’ll be able to show off a couple of them to you this week. As much as I love designing, I’ve never had a time with this many design projects on the go at once before, and I am very much looking forward to knitting something that does not require me to write down instructions for someone else to knit the same thing.

Keep calm and carry yarn.
