well, that was quick, haha. our pretty snow melted almost to nothing by the next day and the temps are back up into the 40s and 50s. good for getting outside, anyway . . .
i’m continuing to work mostly on secret projects here and patterns, but i have a few small progresses on other project, too.
i put a few more rows on my shawlette in hazel knits divine, a delicious merino/cashmere/silk blend with beautiful sheen and bounce—just enough to make the sts pop, but not enough to make them stiff.
this is one of those projects that i could just devour if only i could spend more time with it. i’m thinking that it’s perfect airplane knitting for our trip on thurday—i could probably finish it up by the time we get to san diego. we’re flying out to visit kim’s fmaily next week and then our las vegas family on the way home—yay!
david’s sleeve is, unfortunately, stuck where we last saw it. i’ve been experiencing some severe congestion from the dry cold that is, in turn, causing me a lot of nauseous dizziness. you know, in and out of the cold with exercise, then the house is super dry—it all adds up to unhappy sinuses. so whenever i feel good, i have to grab computer time instead of knitting time in order to keep the business stuff on track, ugh. i’m hoping that a vacation in a sunny place will help.
i did manage to finish up the slöfock hat and mitts set in shalimar honey worsted and we even got some nice photos as we set out for a bike ride yesterday.
everything is all set to go with this one; we put the final tweaks on the pattern this evening and all systems are go for a monday release. doesn’t it look great with his susanna bandana
shawlette scarf? (we have a separate post about that pattern for next week, too)
while the last shipment of our fall in full color club (how can it possibly be the last one already??) is going out the door
a fresh batch of big boxes has arrived with supplies to kick off our spring/summer barenaked club. mister knitspot was nearly engulfed by them the other night as he counted, sorted, and found places for everything.
we’re pumped—we’ve settled on our packaging and presentation; the design work has commenced
