Book Release Party

Faina and I celebrated our book release last night by having a relaxing dinner at a very nice restaurant. We will be busy as we prepare for our very first book signing event at HeartStrings Yarn Studio Wednesday July 30 from 4-7. Please join us as we celebrate, we will have champagne, appetizers, and raffles.

Also, last posting I said I would be adding a photo of the vest I did up for my sister. It is very simple, neck down, short sleeve open vest. I used Fiesta "Meteor"yarn in White Zinfandel. The yarn was very nice to work with and the vest was very quick. It arrived in Texas on Friday.

Long Break

Well----- I have been so busy that I have neglected to write something new. Summertime gives me the false impression that I will have a lot of time to get caught up with all kinds of projects like-cleaning out the garage, closets and paper work. In reality I find it works out just the opposite. Many fun things come up and I choose to do the fun stuff rather than what I had planned. In the midst of this reality I still find time to knit, I have even been using up yarn that I have purchased quite some time ago- doesn't that count as getting caught up?
I just finished a very simple top down , short sleeve, raglan vest in a nice hand-dyed ribbon/tape type yarn from Fiesta called Meteor. I will be sending it off to my sister in Texas as a little cheer her up surprise. It was so nice to use up something from the stash for a change. Most of the time once it hits the stash it is archived forever.
I will post this now and try to photo the vest it later this week for all to see.
