Community Supported Knitting

So a little announcement! I told you that Chrissy is working on a book about indie dyers and sock patterns to go with the yarn. She also invented Community Supported Knitting where we joined a club and get patterns and then the book at the end. Ingenious! Well, I am the dyer for January! I'm so excited! The yarn is up now in the Shop, if you are part of the club there is a special discount code--don't forget to use it!

So the color way is Ladies that Lunch. I'm sure I've talked about this color. I made it up for Debby's Pre-Sock Summit Lunch (which is going to happen again this year!!). I was the dessert course, which was Tiramisu. Yum. So there's chocolate (brown), different berries (reds/pinks) and cream (white). Yum. I am so excited to see what the sock looks like!

Speaking of seeing the socks (the pattern isn't released to the club until January 1st), Chrissy is going to bring a sneak peak to the Holiday party at the new studio! You're invited! Details are here. I hope you can make it if you're in portland. I know this won't be the last event at the new studio so I would love for you to get to know it!

What else is going on...oh yeah! Sock Summit. I got a booth. Now to start dyeing! I also have a booth at Yvonne's new show. She even has the floor map up. Man that lady is good! We're already working on the lay out for the space. While I'm planning for all of these shows I always have in the back of my mind what o will be up to by then. e will most likely go up to Oma's for the weekend or a few days of the event. At Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival o will most likely be crawling if not walking. It's crazy to think of that! Only 5 months way from a toddler. Ca-razy! Did I tell you that he has tooth number 7 and 8. Yeah. He just turned 6 months old! And he's close to 23 pounds. I have my own little butter ball!

Well I don't think I have any pictures to show you. But I do have a little video I put up of e. It's pretty cute. He is not a nose picker in daily life but for some reason when he saw himself in the camera he went for it. I hope you like it!
