a few things

Moonstruck by Karen Alfke ( Designer of the Traveling Sweater ), the sweater that is the ad we have in the new issue of Interweave will be available around the second week in August.

We will have new fibers and a few new colours and maybe a new yarn up on the website at the end of next week.  At least that is the current plan. The website work is always the most challenging part of all of this for me. Honestly I think the website feels the same way about me.

We will be at Twisted tonight at the trunk show they’re having with lovely designer Sam Roshak. I love Sam’s work and lucky for me she loves our yarn.  I can’t wait to see everything all at once. So excited.

I think that covers it for now.  I’ve kept to my tour de fleece goals and have spun every day.  I have spun a whole lot more than I thought I would and am pretty thrilled. I started all of this as a spinner so this reconnection has fed a pretty starving soul. 

Thanks Steph for the shove gentle nudge towards my wheel. I’m pretty sure you know me better than I know myself most days.

ok off to the barn.

We’re short handed because of vacation time and it’s sock club and … .

    Do what you love; love what you’re doing. I’m glad things look so positive from your end. Have a great weekend. Now, off to buy chocolate milk because my grandson is coming for a sleepover. Cheers, Hazel.

    Wow!  You’re so busy making me happy!  I love the sweater, and the prospect of new colorways and yarn!  I don’t know how you do it all, but you always seem to keep me wanting more!

  3. Sounds like you’re having a lot of fun, all around!

    Perhaps I’ll see you at Twisted. I’m going around 5 to see Sam.

    Yeah for sock club time!

    Also a big yeah for the Silk Thread II I bought at Sock Camp. Bought it as in impulse (just because it was Pond Scum) and when I got home I realized I would probably never want to knit with it.

    Well, on a bit of a whim (and because I found a great pattern) I cast on with it last night and love, love, love it!

    Can’t wait to see what new fibers are coming.

    I think I’m in love with Moonstruck.  I can’t wait to see the pattern.  And now that TdF is almost over, we can start talking weaving again!

    Rats missed the reception for Sam . Would have loved to see all but didn’t read about it until this morning. We did get to take care of 20 month old little man for 8 hours yesterday a new high and we all had a ball. Much time spent playing in the water table but fun was had by all. Love the new sweater pattern need a way long life span. Hope all is well at Blue
