I am so far behind that I’m probably in another time zone. That said, I’m going to push forward and ignore everything missed in the last three (egads) weeks, and start over. Childish, perhaps, but also sensible when my desk looks like an archaeological dig.
By now, you’re probably familiar with our Fashionknitsta’s lastest knit-along, the Draper KAL. If not, here’s a quick rundown:
WHAT: Draper by Sara Morris, released by Shibui Knits
WHEN: February 1, 2011 – February 28, 2011
In the spirit of the KAL, I stole Lindsay’s Draper to share her progress:
|Lindsay’s Draper, knit with Tosh Pashmina in “Forestry”|
Moving on, we have Oleya’s Honey Cowl:
|Honey Cowl by Madelinetosh, knit with Madelinetosh DK in “Composition Book Grey”|
Then, in terms of staff progress, we have my Shadow:
|Shadow from Shibui Heichi, knit with Heichi in ‘Canal’|
|Nancy Bush during “An Overture to Estonian Lace”, hosted by Knit Purl|
For the many of you who were disappointed last week by the sudden cancellation of Nancy’s classes & book signing, we’d like to inform you that Nancy is doing well and in excellent health. She had to rush home for a family emergency, but is looking forward to visiting Portland again in the next couple of months. If you were in one of the cancelled classes, you will be first in line for the rescheduled classes and we will contact you with the details once we’ve confirmed the dates.
Until then, I’ll leave you with a couple of teasers from her “An Overture to Estonian Lace” workshop:
|L to R: Shetland lace as compared to Estonian lace pieces|
|L to R: two traditional Estonian lace patterns, “Lily of the Valley” and “Twig”|
Until next time, why don’t you KAL with us?
*That phrase is going to catch on even if I have to use it in everything, darn it.
