Just updated my Blog! Check it out here:

Whats happening here?

The time is still quickly passing here. I have spent a lot of time on promoting my shop and working on items for in it.
This past week I added a new yarn, Sky. While its only one skein, its a very nice one. I love the color and the original idea was that I would knit it up into a shawl. Probably from a pattern out of the Estonian Lace book.
But, I looked at all the projects on the needles here, and decided that until I get to that project on my queue, It will be up for grabs on my shop. So while I am putting it on the back burner, you have the chance at it here.

As many of you may know, I am now a columnist for in the Craft trend Department. I can't begin to say how excited and happy this makes me. I encourage everyone to stop by and take a look at all the online paper has to offer.

What a good thing to keep in mind

Congrats Dr. Anna!

Congrats Dr Anna!

So its not totally official, but just needs paperwork. I am so proud to say she is my sister. A Doctor! And soon to be Mom in August too! 2009 is a good year for her!

On the home front here, I did get a new knitting bag, one I have been lusting after for a while:

Its the Zhivago weekender from Off Hand Designs in the persian paisley fabric. Dh is calling it a carpet bag, or old fashioned dr bag, which makes it perfect to go with this post. I love how roomy it is :Looks like a cave inside. It can hold everything AND the Kitchen sink! Its really well made and so nice. Worth every penny of its cost.
Of course, I bought it at Delightful Ewe. I am thinking of saving to get some of the accessory bags in matching fabric, but not sure yet.

The Wallaby made me do it.

There it is, the Pumpkin Patch Wallaby. Number 6 of the Wonderful Wallaby pattern I have now knit. I can't begin to tell you how addictive this pattern is, I lay awake thinking of color combination's.

But I must keep going, and I have 2 other projects on the needles. The first is out of noblesse yarn in green colorway. The pattern is the Corset top by Annie Modesitt.
The 2nd project I cast on only last Thurs. Its the Soleil from Knitty. Some Tattamy tweed yarn that just arrived in the shop, in avacado colorway, had to come home and jump on the needles. I have almost 8 inches knit on it so far.

One other note : My dear friend Carole has a new venture here. I know she will do very well in this as she is such a energetic and creative person!

Losing January

Yep that is right, I somehow managed to loose a whole month! Life gets that busy.
I am working on several different knitting projects, which has kept me busy as ever.

I started off the year working on Scarves. The first one was from Handspun wool. One ply of golden yellow and one ply of black.

Pattern: Yarn Harlots One Row Handspun Scarf
Yarn: Spun by me
Yardage: Um I have no idea on this one, I just kept knitting until I ran out of yarn.
This was a knit for a Steeler Fan, of course! Way to go Steelers!

The next project was knit for a customer:

Pattern: Heather Undulating Waves Scarf
Yarn: Schaefer Yarns Heather
This is a neat pattern and I really like to knit it. But I do grow bored of it about half way through. I did get it done on time for the customer though.

The next project was a model for the Shop:

Pattern: The Yarn Harlots One Row Handspun Scarf
Yarn :Universal Classic Worsted Long Print
This went fast. I used one skein and just knit till I ran out again.

Finally I got another Wallaby knit up as 2 of my sisters are pregnant, I figured I would work on some small ones for the new babies.

So that is what happened to most of my January. February has begun and the economy is still not doing the greatest.
