It was quite the trip. I learned alot about book photography and I got to meet so many people. I feel very lucky to be working with Interweave and their talented staff. I didn’t bring a camera so I don’t have any photos from Colorado. I’m really bad about blogging things like that because I almost never take photos even when I bring a camera. Which has made me learn that it’s not worth dragging around my big camera when I’m not likely to use it anyway.
I worked on that Baby Boogie sweater, and would have finished it, had I made the right size.
I wrote sizes in my notebook for both girls but for some reason, I made the big girl size thinking it was the small one. I didn’t notice it until I had finished the sleeves and was working down the body. I put it on a scrap piece of yarn, and started the correct size. Now I have 2 sweaters at the same stage.
You’ll notice, though, that it wasn’t finished and Baby Boogie turned 3 yesterday. She didn’t notice because we took her out and got her the other present that she wanted for her birthday:
Talk about a tough little chickie. She insisted on getting her ears pierced and that it wouldn’t hurt. She flinched a little and fussed after the second one but she toughed it out and swallowed her tears, then went to go pick out more earrings for when she gets to change them. My baby is growing up.
Hopefully I’ll be finishing the sweater soon. I’m glad I decided to dye 2 hanks of yarn or I would have had to rip out a half finished 8goingon20 sweater. I’ve been making a bunch of yarns too. Now that I can spin for a “me” project instead of small bits here and there, I’ve got 3 different projects going on the main wheel and I’m totally unfocused. I love it.
I did finish 2 older projects as well:
The orangey stuff is Pumpkin Juice from Enchanted Knoll and the pink stuff is some Superwash merino Tencel gifted to me by Abby. I think both yarns will go into items for the girls. Baby Boogie claimed the Pumpkin Juice the second it hit the wheel. I think she wants hats, mittens and scarf if I can bring myself to make a scarf :)
