Happy New Year

It's officially the new year. Back to work today - edited 2 more hat patterns today and started on a third (which needs test knitting to get the pattern sorted out), anwered several emails with knitting questions, returned the hats to the shop which were left in the basket from a Christmas craft show I was in, accepted a date for speaking at the Peterborough Guild on September 24th and tonight I'll finish a test knit of a sock. Plans were made for scheduling some sock photos, talked about the patterns we need to finish up for release this month, the Stitches West show is in February with a to-do list attached to it that begins now. Enough already. This year I'm going to try not to get too far ahead of myself. I'm looking forward to sitting and finishing my sock (that's the stonewashed denim wool I put in the oven - worked perfectly).
Oh and guess what showed up, the missing ball of sock wool. I knew it would turn up but I was losing faith since it was taking so very long. I lost this ball of sock wool several months back with part of a first sock knit but no incentive to finish it since the ball of wool for the second sock took a hike. It hiked through a doorway and around a corner into the next room for a little time out sitting in a dusty corner behind a cabinet. It popped out, literally, when I was reaching behind said cabinet to unplug the extension to the tree lights. A new year's gift. Now where is that partial sock. Note to self - never clean up again until you move from this house!


  1. Yay - you found the wool. Now can you stop by here and find the mate to the sock I finally finished?


  2. You realize, don't you, that you have the DREAM job. I'm envious!
