On The Road Again

The buttons are all on and even before the deadline of last night. Yes!!
Lynda is taking the sweaters to Huntsville to photograph babies today.

Here are a few more baby sweaters which came in yesterday (deadline day). We are on a roll with this booklet. Still photography to do and the edits but we're definitely moving towards a finished product.

For anyone just tuning in, I wrote a top down V-necked baby cardigan pattern (see sweaters in top photo) and sent the pattern to my CabinFever design crew and these are the sweaters I got back. Isn't it amazing how so many different sweaters can be made from one pattern? And as we have found before, no duplication. If they can do this from a plain pattern, what could you do? I can't wait to see.

We are on the road again, off to Massachusetts. Lynda is going to do a trade show and I'm going to teach at the Fiber Loft store in Harvard on Saturday( . If you are in the area check it out. I'm doing a show & tell in the morning. I've packed some sweaters which I think are interesting to knit and were certainly interesting to design. In the afternoon I'm leading a workshop to explore V-neck cardigans from the top down and talk about alterations for a better fit. Then we are going to tackle tubular edgings for tank tops and buttonbands. I'm looking forward to it (now the buttons are done). Always a good time with Reba.

My suitcase of sweater samples is packed up and I have sufficient yarn projects in my knitting bag. I guess I should pack some clothes or something too. Hmm I don't even have my summer clothes out yet but I'm sure I can scare up a short sleeved shirt or two.

Maybe I'll see you in Mass.,
