Almost two weeks down...
Almost two weeks to go... Got my stitches out yesterday, but I am not supposed to bend my thumb for another ten or so days. What a pain in the rear! Knitting is okay since I throw, the purl stitch is slooooooow and crocheting is a mess. Not that my deadlines care... but I am in denial about that for at least today.
Kiddo was off school last week so we took an afternoon, grabbed the projects and the puppy dog, and headed up to Bear Mountain Lake in NY. I am working on some new patterns of my own to sell via download and in yarn stores - here is the back view of the very first one! Called the Silly Putty Shrug because it is so adjustable and can be worn different ways. It is knitted in a reversible stitch, and the model is made in SWTC Karaoke. More details available as we get closer to launch. We took photos of three of the patterns since it was so nice outside.
Speaking of launching - thank you SO MUCH for coming by the radio show in droves! Getting Loopy! airs again today at 1:00 PM eastern, and as always you can go to the archives to listen later. Today's guest is Crochet Dee , next week is Doris Chan, and later on will be Carrie A Sullivan among many others.
How cool is the internet? We launched the little radio show and hundreds and hundreds of people listened. We were talking about a yarn company and the president of that company called in before we even went off the air! I love how crocheters and knitters can use the latest technology to talk about their craft, which when you come right down to it is about the lowest technology you can think of.
Anyway, I have to go slowly finish some sleeve caps. Can't wait to try to pick up and knit the collar once the sweater is finished...
