A lovely day.

Yesterday was a pretty perfect birthday. Thank you all for the birthday wishes! There was lots of celebrating....


a birthday work lunch


an afternoon break filled with knitting, sunshine, and flowers (I feel a bit bad for those of you being hit with the endless winter. We're actually choosing to go to the snow this weekend...can you imagine?!)


a birthday dinner that ended with bread pudding! Yummy! Didn't my sister pick out the best four candles?!


I finished my first Ravellenics project in the WIPs Dancing competition last night and blocked it today (I guess that's a benefit of being home sick with a cold!?!). I do love it and Anzula's Cloud yarn blocks like a dream! Just need to get this to a speedy test knitter or two (let me know if you're interested...I feel guilty asking during Olympic knitting!).


My next event will involve designing with these beauties! I'm getting ready for ShaliMarch (you can read all about it here) with hopefully a new design in Shalimar Yarns Homage DK. I'm offering a discount code from now until March 7, for 20% off any IGK pattern from my ravelry store ($6.00 or less) with the coupon code: shalimarch2014  That way if any of you want to start planning your knits for Shalimarch you'll be good to go!

Are any of you participating in Ravellenics and/or knitting along with the Olympics? What are you knitting? We've been glued to tv every night cheering!

Happy Knitting!

I wish I was a speedy knitter. That doesn't happen with a small child running around. I'm lucky I finish anything ever. Oh well. It looks lovely :)

I'd love to be a test knitter for you. I live in the Bay Area, have lots of time, and have been knitting seriously for over 35 years, although I learned long before that. I have met you briefly a couple of times and have been thinking for a long time about how I might get more involved in the larger knitting world. Please email me if you want more info!
