FO pics for Knitengruven

Every once in a while Denise – knitengruven on Ravelry – asks me to take a bunch of pictures of all her FOs (finished objects). She brings her XL Ziploc bag, overflowing with gorgeous knitting, mostly socks and shawls. Here are some of my favorites that we shot back at the end of May, before the kids got out of school.

Red Collection News

The Red Collection

I mentioned a while ago that I was going to be making some behind the scenes changes around here. One of the biggies, and the first that I’m getting around to, is that I’m changing how I offer my book, The Red Collection. In an effort to streamline my business before I really start school full time next fall, I’m simplifying things for myself. The bad news is that the book will no longer be offered in print. The good news is that I have a few copies left that I can sell to you. The other good news is that if you buy it from me, you’ll get the digital version, too, which has been updated to include the full text of the print copy.

If you’re interested in purchasing a copy before the book goes out of print, you can find all the information on The Red Collection page. I’ll be offering the last copies for one week, until March 15th. Thank you!

The Red Collection is now available exclusively in digital format! Find more information on The Red Collection page.

 

heat wave?

I am not ashamed to admit that if the temperature in my house rises above 70 degrees I will put on the AC. Even in February. That’s where we’re at today. It is currently 75 outside, but a comfortable 69 indoors.

I longingly remember the cold days of winter, when we put on every possible handknit that we could find, and headed out in the morning light to sled down the hill. That was Monday! What a winter, right?
