breathe...

right now, i'm cozied up with coffee, and eva cassidy singing in my ear.... i'm pretty excited today because knit city is just 2 days away!! I've been very busy tying up loose ends in preparing for the weekend getaway. and oh i'm so looking forward to it!!


so many exciting things! if you haven't already seen or heard, a few books will be making their debut at this event! you can bet i'll be snagging copies of both Cascadia and Journey. i'm so very happy that the sample I knit for Cascadia made the front cover! you can bet you'll see the sample at knit city.
I am also so incredibly proud of jane and Shannon for pulling off a beautiful new book in record timing! journey is a beautiful book, much like island. the photos are stunning, and something you'll love to have on display. the patterns all look amazing too! I had the opportunity to test one of the patterns. but you know i'll be eventually knitting them all. xoxo


of course I had mentioned that I needed to search out my queue to determine my yarn purchases... i'm feeling pretty overwhelmed with the size of my queue right now. hahaah. it seems to be largely sweaters and shawls. hmmmm that might not help the budget. haha.

I am also beyond excited to attend the yarn harlot's speed knitting class. i'm sure i'll be learning so many new techniques!

most of all though, I am just really excited to surround myself with amazing knitters, to meet bloggers and ravelry friends for the first time in person, to knit, enjoy lovely coffees, and all of that yarny goodness... you know what i'm talking about. oxxoo

  1. I know! The countdown begins! My family is making fun of me because every night at the dinner table I talk about how many days are left until Knit City. And my mom gave me $$ for my birthday today for yarn/cascadia/journey purchases! yay!!!! I am determined to add to my sock yarn supply, especially since I'm taking Grok the Sock with the Yarn harlot...

  3. I'm so excited for Jane and Shannon and cannot wait to get my hands on their new book. Sadly, I live too far away to join you all at Knit City but I know I'll be living vicariously through your blog posts! Have an extra cuppa joe for me!
