Good Things


There are so many good things lately that I have been very happy and excited about...

First of all.. on a personal note.. our little guy is now 2 months old and is all smiles these days.


Just a smiling face sitting atop a pair of shoulders. No neck in sight. :)


Aside from that, I've felt re-enthused about my knitting and have been working on a new design!


Squishy elegant cables are always a treat.

Also. I am planning out a trip to Santa Clara, California at the end of February because I am going to be a vendor at Stitches West again this year! The neckless baby and I will be sharing a booth again with Lisa Sanchez from Becoming Art. Crazy? Yes, probably. But it will be fun.

See.. so many good things.

I was going through a little NNK withdrawal yesterday and happened to listen to the podcast where you talked about Stitches West and your insane pattern preparations. I hope this time is a lot calmer for you. Happy knitting!

What a beautiful baby!! When mine was that age he had no neck too. Course he also had no eyebrows... Actually he kinda still doesn't have eyebrows.

I can't wait to see your new design it looks like it's right up my alley! ♥

A babywrap, Alana!
I used it all the time when I was on fairs and had my baby with me.
I just wrapped her around my body and I sold more than other years. It's a perfect attraction for people too :p
Just invest in a babywrap... not only for the fair. ;) it's awesome to carry your child around :)

Alana, so very glad things have calmed down and you are able to enjoy that precious little boy and come up with more patterns for me to buy and knit. It was a great pleasure to meet you last year and it would be fantastic to say hello to you again. Hope to see you real soon.
