All My Projects

So, Stitches was GREAT! I took no photos, but I found out that my face is in the new flyer for Stitches West in two places. if you go here you can download a pdf of the brouchure and check me out. How funny is that? It is especially funny that it is the same photo in two places. Actually, the art director at XRX is a superb lady and she did a great job, it is just so wierd to see one's face in such a context. I am also featured in the video clips of teachers. Tee hee.

Anyway, here is a non-exhaustive list of everything in active production right now:
Einstein-chocolate Touch Me Almost DONE!
5-color challenge-hat and scarf
Landscape shawl-still perking along-am up to the reeeaaallly long rows now
Truly Tasha shawl started about 6 years ago-nothing left but about 2 feet of the edging!
Socks that Rock-done but no longer for Sara-she likes shorty socks-now I know
Chinese Lantern-sleeves and finishing are all that it lacks
3 pairs of orphaned socks in yarns I can't remember-well one is Cestari wool and cotton-the others are various hand-dyed boutique yarns
Whew. I will get all this done because I am excited to! I have been really good about not buying new stuff because I keep thinking of the embarrasment of riches I have in my own closets and under my beds and in the basement, and...well, you know...

Stitches East

Stitches is coming! The big expo starts tomorrow. I am experiencing my normal butterflies but preparing has become much easier as I've standardized my handouts and samples for each class. I basically just have to print the handouts and pick up my tote for that particular class. All my classes sold out (!) which just amazes me. I look forward to meeting and interacting with the students and doing my best to field their questions. I learn so much from them and the act of helping them discover their strengths. Well, I'm off to wind yarn samples. I will take some pictures of my classes and post them on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!
