My quarter page Mug Shot in Fall Interweave Knits 2010!



I absolutely love Interweave Knits.  I only get one knitting magazine and it's this one.  I always read the magazine when I first get it, cover to cover while drinking my tea but being summer...I was hauling the kids off for a bike ride on the waterfront with my brother.  So I grabbed the magazine and threw it in my beach bag to read at while having our picnic.  We ended up buying lunch at a snack shack and walking for hours while the girls' biked.  I came home late and exhausted and frankly forgot about the magazine until now....
I was just checking my last emails of the evening...don't know why.  There can't be anything urgent at 10 pm!  But,  I had this strange email stating that she saw my sweater in an Ad in the Interweave Knits magazine that just came out.  She went first to Frog Tree Yarns in search of the pattern then googled my name after she was unable to find anything on Frog Tree's website.  She loves the sweater and wants to know where she can buy it.  Good heavens, I wasn't aware of this Ad!  I knew there was one coming out this fall in the Yarn Market News magazine - but I had no clue that my mug shot would be in my favorite magazine!  It's not just any Ad - it's a quarter page Ad!  Wow - I hope I can sleep tonight...

knit-n-bake

In keeping with my "Where do you like to Knit" line....I decided that knit-n-bake was just up my alley!
We headed over to Hills Resort (http://www.hillsresort.com/) in Priest Lake, Idaho for our yearly vacation with another family.  It's in the Rocky mountains and the heat can be intense.  The lake is glacier water and my big toe was screaming from what it thought was frost bite.  There's only one way to cool off - laying in the raft and dipping the hands in the water once in a while to change direction.  I kept the yarn in a plastic sack as a precaution and was able to get quite a bit of knitting done while bronzing....I mean burning.  If you haven't knit-n-baked this summer, you haven't had a good summer yet!

A few new books now available


Looks like both of the books I have contributed designs to are now available....The knit prayer shawls has 1 of my wraps while the In the Nick of Time has 2 of my stocking designs - both being on the cover. 
I just received my knit prayer shawls book and there are 15 gorgeous shawls in it.  I haven't received the In the Nick of Time book yet - but I'm excited to see all of the stockings.  The prayer shawl was due last September while the stockings were due in February so I was really surprised to see them both pop up in the same week.
