Restocked this Curved Crystal Focal bracelet, but it’s my last Curved piece and I’m not having any luck finding more.

I’m so excited to tell you that we now have some of our Knitters Tools (Yarn Swifts and some Beautiful Drop Spindles) and Shawl Pins for sale at a wonderful shop called Conversational Threads! So if you’re in the area of Emmaus, PA and hankering for some amazing yarn and some Scott Mtn. Crafts creations to go with it, stop in a see Cindy – she’s wonderful and I’m betting you won’t find another yarn shop this welcoming and chock full of yarn in the area!
I have been knitting – and knitting, and buying yarn and knitting and adding more storage cubes to my studio and organizing and knitting. Put working in there, getting sick on Christmas day followed by TWO sinus infections since January and I’d say my knitting production isn’t too shabby.
Buttonwillow is finished! Amazing pattern from Romi. I just don’t know how she does this, with the combination of stitches and how they flow, but her patterns are just fantastic. You can never be disappointed. This was made with a little over 1 skein of Madelinetosh Sock in Dusk. I have to say I love the yarn, but as of right now, I’m using what I have and not buying anymore. I’d really like to see them improve their customer service and there are so many great dyers out there with fantastic yarn AND great customer service. And that’s all I’m saying about that.
I’ve completed 7 projects since January…..I won’t go through them all here, but you can see them on my Ravelry page. I’ve made my first Entrelac Project, a scarf and I’m quite proud that I did it AND I finally found a good match for the Briar Rose Grandma’s Blessing yarn I’ve had in stash for what seem like forever. Cowls seem to be my go to project lately – I’m making Lispenard now from some gorgeous Fiber Company Acadia in Amber – what a color! And a special baby knit. I’m trying not to cast on too many projects at once, but I have to say – if I did it would justify the stash I have – witnessed by what I entered into my Ravelry stash page the last few weeks.
And that’s all the new I can think of on this Monday morning before work – have a great week!

Now that was a long time between blog posts. I guess when you don’t feel like blogging, you don’t blog. We went from one crazy time of year to the next crazy time of year – gearing up for the holidays. This post is just coming off a very bad Winter Storm that left us without power for 7 days. It was much worse the Hurricane Irene which also left us without power for most of a week – but that was different – it was still nice outside – we used our camper for cooking and showers and general hanging about. This one was brutal – over a foot of snow before Halloween – I’ve never seen that before.
The damage was unreal – we’re quite lucky all the trees that came down didn’t land on the house – the trees broke at the bases where the branches fork out because of the weight of the snow on all the unfallen leaves – it was probably the scariest storm I think I’ve been through and being without power for a large part of it made it more so. There are still about 10k people in NJ without power – I consider us lucky to be restored yesterday – thankfully, after Irene we bought a generator. I hope this isn’t a sign of how our Winter is going to go!
There has been lots of knitting in between posts….
There was Sedona….
I’m not to sure I’m happy with this – it was a nice knit – but the collar is just too floppy wide – I think I might sit with a crochet hook later today to see if I can do something about that – I’d love to wear it!
Another Shale Baby Blanket for a Co-worker – this really is such a nice pattern and a quick knit that makes a beautiful gift.
Whipporwill Shawl made with Kauni yarn – I saw this in a shop in Vermont and my only regret is that I didn’t make the larger size – love the color changes!
Little Shells Shawl for a friends daughters wedding – this was a quick knit – thankfully since the wedding is next weekend!
That’s enough photo montage for now – I’m working on another shawl and debating a long sweater cardigan…..mmmmmm
We spent the summer Camping on and off, getting the most we could from the new camper – it was an adventure to learn all about how to use a generator to keep that camper battery charged. But the camper is so nice – just park it and you’re set up. Our last camping trip was Rhinebeck – we had a great time, camped next to a party of knitters and it was beautiful fall weather. We took the pups with us on all these trips and they did so well – they really like camping – now if we could just figure out what exactly it is that sometimes makes them get sick in the car, that would be a bonus. Poor things.
On our vacation in New England – I picked up a Mandolin at a pawn shop/antique dealer. I’ve always wanted to learn and it seemed like it was meant to be. Our next trip was to the Finger Lakes Region of New York and I ended up trading that in for a Beautiful new Eastman Mandolin. I’ve been taking lessons since august and having a blast. My DH also decided to finally buy that Banjo he’s wanted for awhile and we’re both just having fun learning.
Work started in September and there is a lot of change to get used to but things seem to be moving along. November is one of my favorite months for school – we have a lot of down time because of scheduling so I’m hoping to use some of that to get a jump start on the holidays – ha! We’ll see if that happens after being in limbo for a week – it seems like it takes longer to catch up after things like that.
I’ve thought of setting up a new blog….but really, this one is here, it’s mine and I’ll post when I post. There really shouldn’t be rules I impose on myself for something I’m supposed to enjoy doing!
With that I’ll leave you with my view from where I work….
All these photos with the exception of the mandolin – taken with iphone 4s camera – it’s amazing!
