Last spring I set up a website through the Google/Intuit Get Your Business Online program at the same time that I remodeled this site. That free website has been mostly trouble; hard to update, limited space, inconvenient photo manipulation, you get the picture. That site will stay up until the end of its free period sometime in May, I believe - I'll check on that. In the meantime I will be building a new site with the help of my friend Barbara Day at Day's Work Design. Until the new site is up and running you will be able to find out what's going on right here! In the Links section, you will find a links to my etsy store and Ravelry group which will further serve in keeping you up to date. I will announce the launch of the new site Right Here and in the Ravelry group. I don't know how long this process will take but everything should be covered. Any questions can be left here or on Ravelry. We may even transfer the domain name to this blog for the time being.
Now for the News!
I'm getting some fiber festivals lined up for the summer and fall! You will be able to find me at:
The Mid-Ohio Fiber Fair August 17 & 18
If you are in the area you should consider going - it's a very nice smaller fair!
The Finger Lakes Fiber Arts Festival September 21 &22
Thanks again to Pat Gesler for sharing her space!
NYS Sheep and Wool Festival October 19 & 20
Even if I don't get in as a vendor I'll be there!
Aside from the KALs that I'm in the middle of, the thing that has me buzzing is that I have been asked to be a part of a book project!!! Mara Rooney of The Dancing Goat Yarn Shop passed on an email calling for patterns that originated in LYSs around the US. I came up with a cowl pattern in a long and a short version and got it submitted at the last minute. A couple of days ago I received an email stating that they would like to use the long version if I wanted to participate. The sample yarn is on the way and I'll have it knit up and back to them in about a month. The book is part of the 60 Quick Knit series from Sixth & Spring books and Cascade Yarn. I don't know when it will be available - possibly in the late summer or early fall. I will let you know about that too.
That's about all for now. I have to get my taxes done, get knitting and get dying!
