So, yesterday I spent a lot of time jumping in and out of Alex's car and smelling mold and old people...it's a long story. On the heels of that, I stopped by Knot Just Knits to say hi to Elizabeth, and ended up instead hanging out with knitting teacher extraordinaire, Sue Jaffe. She's nothing short of fabulous...if you have a question about a technique, pattern, or general yarn issue, ask Sue. This girl has her poop together and she's about as nice as nice gets.
I did, however, finish yet another pattern repeat on the shop sample. Since I'm on the decrease side, it's going faster and faster...watch out, knitting world! You're about to see a super-pretty scarf! I hope to finish it today but it all depends on how much time I spend outdoors. It was 103 degrees when I arrived at 5914 N Elston yesterday. Mohair and profuse humidity and sweat are not a good match.
Today, I hope to finish the shop sample (damn, am I ambitious), and I am planning on over-caffeinating so I can hop in and out of Alex's car again. I'm also going to stop by two yarn shops and talk to the owners about stories I want to write, and call a lady about a shawl. Ooh...and I'm hoping to write stuff down that's been in my head, before the stitch patterns in me disappear forever.
I bet none of you even knew that I had stitch patterns in me!
And the big news of the day...my article from yesterday's examiner.com got certified as local, which may not sound like a big deal but it means that they pay me more. It also means my article ended up on their four-story flash rotation on their front page. Get me a fedora with a card in it that says "SCOOP!"
Thanks as always for your support...;-)
