in pittsburgh this saturday! more info here.
soon this blog will get back to regularly scheduled programming, christmas knitting, designing etc. ;)
this is a whopper of a festival this year… friday, saturday, and sunday. i’ll be there along with the 150 new skeins i’ve dyed up… and the baby. here’s a sneak peek.
hope to see you there!
it’s tomorrow :) it should be exciting and an adventure with the little guy along. here are some newly completed hats for the event. hope to see some of you there!
i had the brainstorm for this before i had the babe, and now we (some fiber arts friends and i) are working on the show. so although there may not be as much knitting, there are fibery things going on!
we will probably have a few more vendors than those listed. still working on that :)
handmade arcade was awesome. i made some nice trades and saw lots of folks. wool in spring is still not the best seller, but you know ;)
this lamp was made by my friend lynne – so awesome! it’s a vintage tin as the base with a heavy heavy button laden lamp shade. it will be perfect for the yarn studio. i’ll put in a link once she gets back to me!
and these knit veggies came from sarah of little lumpkins. mmm. for the babe of course.
i’ll show you all my only purchase on saturday – when i reach week 32 – because it’s something i wear and that’s time for the next belly pic.
this third trimester is certainly taking me out a bit. i’ve been gestating and napping a lot, and my belly has been growing. more specifically, the baby is currently gaining 1/2 a lb a week! crazypants. but i’m behind in emails and responses and i apologize, but i’m not sure that i’ll get more on top of that any time soon :)
next on the agenda is dyeing the 60! skeins of snapdragon light fingering (the yarn used in the springling shawls) so i can get them up to coincide with a ravelry ad i have going up next month for the pattern.
i have to work at a slow pace though, because i think i’m getting some carpal tunnel (25% of pregnant ladies get these) symptoms in my hands. so you will notice that this blog is going to go at a more third trimester friendly pace. but i will still try to do my weekly updates. we’ll see.
this coming saturday at the convention center downtown. my favorite craft show of the year for sure!
one of my favorite shows of the year.
more information over here. check out the amazing list of vendors! if you’re anywhere within driving distance of savage, md, i highly highly recommend this show. or you could just come to see me ;)
hi all! i’ll be at the pgh knit and crochet festival this weekend. if you’re around pgh, hope to see you there!
stephanie of SpaceCadet Creations has a table in the sponsor section and maggie of burgh baby gear has a booth right next to ours. should be fun and it’s great to see more local indie fiber artists who don’t do many shows making appearances. i’m also glad to see the number of farms that will be there.
and in more burgh fibery news, there’s a new knitting video-cast to watch called 90% knitting. lisa is a fabulous knitter who has done more than one test knit for me. and she talks about my book and the farm wool fiber club on episode two, if you’re interested. that episode can be found here.
