Let’s see…

I’ll be teaching at the Taos Wool Festival in October:  Aran Lace & Twisted Stitches.  I’m hoping to visit some LYSs while I’m there.  I’m bringing my mom along, so we’ll be making a small vacation out of the trip.

I used to use my Let’s Do the Twist mitts for my Twisted Stitches class, but have realized that it’s easier to folks to learn with worsted weight rather than fingering or sport.

I’m currently designing & knitting up a worsted weight cowl, using Zen Yarn Garden’s Serenity….which is just scrumptious. The colorway is Frosted Teal but to me in real life my skeins read as one of my favorite colors…turquoise.  (I love turquoise in all its variations, from greenish to sky blue.)

The other nice thing about the class project being a cowl is that I can use a larger variety of stitch patterns (and larger stitch patterns themselves).    I’ll be self publishing the pattern in the next couple months.

In other knitting news, I’m working on a super secret project to be published later this year.  I’m also still working on second book projects, of course.  And Hitch is moving along.

Tech editing-wise, I fear I’m still not accepting new clients, and don’t know when I will be.  I’ll post on the tech editing page when I am.

In totally nonknitting news, we finally did a video of Rigel playing with balloons.
