Look at what hand-made cuteness I got in the mail this week:
(Card and friendship bracelet made by my awesome sister-in-law, Susannah)
Multiple Choice Question: How adorable is Susannah?
A. Cuter than a puppy wearing a bow-tie sitting in an upside-down top-hat?
B. More darling than a teddybear wearing a pink dress carrying a parasol?
C. Sweeter than a caramel covered, powdered-sugar dusted, doughnut eaten in the sunshine?
Answer: All of the above! (Thanks so much, Susannah!) You can envy more of Susannah’s work and bask in her stunning style at her blog, My Grammer of Ornament.
In other news, this exciting little package also came in the mail this week. What’s in there has been absolutely dominating my weekend (in the most delightful way, of course):
I won’t reveal its contents, but I will say that you should be on the lookout for my next delicious wooly design in the upcoming Wool People 2!
Wow, what a busy week! So much has happened that I don’t even know where to start.
Last Thursday my husband and I went to San Juan, Puerto Rico for our first ever beach vacation. That same day I released my newest pattern, the Georgina Cardigan. Also this week, my feature spread in Knitscene magazine came out! I’ll have more on both of those later. I also visited the Lion Brand Yarn Studio where I got a personal tour of the company’s entire line.
I didn’t get much knitting done in Puerto Rico. Being a beach babe and a knit darling don’t really go together, but I did manage to fit in a few stitches!
The air was crisp and carried all the old wonderful and sentimental scents of fall on it’s many gusts and howls; apple cider, pumpkin pie, and the cooking smells of some hearty, savory delight.
Photographs taken by my surprisingly eager and interested husband, Brian:
Me with Sabina, who is wearing her beautifully hand knitted Delancey Cardigan. She did a lovely job and I sepecially like her color choices. She was delightful, and I’m so happy I ran into her!
The sheep were fascinating and sometimes hilarious!
Laura and Mehgan holding an angora rabbit. What fun!
An alpaca parade! Go ahead, say it out loud. ALPACA PARADE! ALPACA PARADE! If it doesn’t make you smile, I don’t want to know you.
I had the best time at the sheep and wool festival! You can bet on seeing me there again next year.
