Done, done and done

The January-February newsletter is finally done, printed, labeled, and mailed. For those of you who simply can’t wait for the snail mail (and I admit that bulk presort mail is slow) it’s been posted here.

Also, inventory is done. Thank you so much to those of you who were able to help Sunday morning. You made it fun, and we got it done so much more quickly and easily than before. Thank ewe, thank ewe 😉 Now if Lynda will share her photos with me, I’ll post a few and you’ll see just how fun it was!

And finally, I submitted my first design to Knitty last week. The deadline for submission was January 5th, so that’s why the newsletter is a bit late. Sorry. The Knitty guidelines say that they’ll let you know you’re not included as soon as they decide, so no news is good news. It’s just a simple little pattern, for those gauntlets, and they’re not all that unusual, but in any event, writing the pattern, taking the photos, and trying to be very organized about it was a good exercise for me.

Here are a few more photos from the various holiday parties.

Like a morning in Ireland

The lovely Ginny knits endless scarves and other mindless items the bazaar at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. And every year when it’s all over she comes in looking for something that’s “…not another d@mn scarf…” I think this qualifies.

We caught a couple of candid shots of Ginny in her newly completed cabled cardigan from the Debbie Bliss Donegal Tweed book. She whipped this out in no time. Now it lives on the shop mannequin for a while, but it looks so much better on Ginny.
