Does anyone know where the summer went? I feel like I need to place a ‘lost’ ad for it.
Interweave/Spinning Daily Webinar Recap My webinar with Interweave/Spinning Daily was earlier this week. Despite my apprehension about presenting in an environment where I had no feedback to judge interest and engagement, it was actually pretty good. There were about 20-25 live attendees and more than registered to watch it offline. If you missed or couldn’t attend the webinar it’s available as an on-demand download from the same link (on my classes page).
Upcoming Design I really thought my next pattern would be a shawl. I had this stitch pattern I wanted to center it around but that stitch pattern had a mind of its own. So it’s going to be a beaded cowl. If you’ve never added beads to your knitwear before this will be a great pattern to start with since the lace pattern is so repeatable and beads are only placed every few rows. It should be released in September.
I Won Some Yarn (and by some I mean a sweater’s worth) My stash increased again since Stitches Midwest but I promise I didn’t buy the yarn. The Buffalo Wool Company held a Facebook/Instagram Contest to see what sweaters people would make out of their Buffalo Skies DK yarn. I found out last week that my entry won and the yarn arrived Friday. Want to see a pretty picture? 8 skeins of Still Water. Upcoming Events
I actually don’t have any classes or events scheduled the rest of this year (unless you count a vacation in October). I’m always available though to schedule some teaching either in person or via Skype if you’re interested
