Trunk Show!

Trunk Show - Embraceable Ewe, Hamburg, NY

When your Dad owns a roadside farm market and you are in need of a box for moving/storage/trunk-showing the box will always be a banana box. And so last Wednesday I headed to the Embraceable Ewe in Hamburg, NY for my “trunk” show with my banana box full of all my knitting. My life’s work, I joked, all fit in that box.

If I had a yarn store, I would want it to be in a beautiful old house and filled with knitters – you can sorta see them all on the porch in this next picture.

I’m taking this show on the road! No really, I’m headed to Buffalo next week to 1) visit my family and 2) have a trunk show and book signing at The Embraceable Ewe in Hamburg. If you’re close, you should totally come. It’s a potluck, too! Bring something if you can. More info here, from my recent newsletter.

What: Trunk Show! Book Signing! Potluck! At a yarn store!
Where: Embraceable Ewe Yarn Shop in Hamburg, NY
When: Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 6-9 pm

Call the shop or email me if you have any questions!

You may not recognize some of the items in that picture up there. It’s because they’re new patterns! I’m going to debut them at the trunk show, and they’ll be available next week! It’s an eBook!

What else is new? This shawl, for one, which came off the pins last night and was blocked this morning.

When I finish this blog post, I am going to wind yarn to knit another one of the graces, Euphrosyne. And given the next picture, you could assume I might have a shawl problem. More specifically, I have a Through the Loops shawl problem. I am not ashamed.

Mystery Shawl

Kirsten is doing a mystery shawl! And knitting shawls in summer just feels good, amiright?
There is more to blog about, but yarn needs winding. You’ll hear from me again soon.

Versa Vest

Check out the two latest patterns from my partner in crime, Cindy Myska Colbert!

Above is the Versa Vest modeled, of course, by our Mallory. I say that like she’s partly mine. Mallory is leaving next fall to go to college and I don’t want to talk about it because then I’ll cry. But they’re partly tears of joy because I know she’ll have the time of her life. I’ll miss her. Maybe she’ll still tweet at me every once in a while.

Enough about that. Let’s look at Mallory’s feet, shall we? The other pattern is for the Tanzine Aura Socks!

Tanzine Aura Socks

Cindy wrote this sock pattern for her knitting students, and it is a perfect pattern if you’re a first time sock knitter. Lotsa great tips and tricks.

Remember, these are Cindy’s patterns, not mine. I just take the pictures and do the layout for her patterns. Cindy has recently started blogging, and you can read her knitfocused blog, Knit Happens. It’s a good read because she is a shaman, trust me.

Last but not least, the designer herself, in her own design! I think she did a hair flip right before this picture.
