Whew! I’m back!
Howdy, folks. How’s everybody been?
I’m doing all right despite a little freak back pain, but otherwise, I think everything’s getting back to normal… well… Ok. Not really. Let’s just say that normal has been redefined.
First, let me tell you that our volume of sales at ThreadBear is through the roof. You guys are great. So if I disappear for a day or fourteen at a time, please know that I’m still here and that I still love you all very much… and that I’m buried with orders and events and dyeing and getting stock on the shelves and knitting and rearranging furniture and spinning and driving all over God’s creation and weaving and putting orders together and shipping out orders and actually being a web developer occasionally and being our local guild coordinator and cleaning house for functions at the apartment and oh, fiddlesticks. You get the point.
Here’s the deal, though. In case you didn’t notice there actually are some fiber-related projects going on in there. I’m pulling my WIP list today to revamp that sucker. It’s woefully out-of-date. I’ve started a new pair of Toe-Up Socks in my own hand-painted sport weight superwash. I’m still doing a bit of spinning on my drop spindle using Brown Sheep’s Beast roving, but mainly I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of our wheels!! I’m so excited. I recently started a Koigu Charlotte’s Web Shawl (as seen in the skeins previously), and that’s coming along slowly but surely.
But possibly most importantly, I’ve come to a point where I’m absolutely dedicated to clearing out some nearly finished projects. Those include but are probably not limited to: The High Helen Sweater, The Aslan Socks, and The Fair Isle Embellished Christmas Stocking.
Tonight, we’re off to Columbus, Indiana for their Knit Night. If anyone is in the vicinity, please join us. We’re at the Eastside Community Center. If you need driving instructions, call or e-mail. I’m at
812-360-7016 and firstname.lastname@example.org respectively.
Be well, and I’ll talk to you soon!
