End of January

Where has this month gone. Nearly ready to head to Halifax for ACTS (Atlantic Craft Trade Show) on Thursday, please weather co-operate.

My next project is to create something for "Operation Homespun".
I've been trying to put my own spin on a sleeveless top that is in the Homespun Book! I am using Patons Classic Marino. The deadkine is Feb 16th, I will have to get busy, no procrastination!!

3 Skeins of Naturally Caron Spa Yarn in Dark Driftwood

3 Skeins of Naturally Caron Spa Yarn in Dark Driftwood
Gifted by Caron

We are giving away three skeins of Naturally Caron in Dark Driftwood to one lucky winner. You won't believe how incredibly soft this silky bamboo blend is until you feel it for yourself. This sensational yarn features 3D stitches, shape control and is a ton of fun to work with. It's DK weight, so it's a great choice for summer projects, but it's so silky you'll want to use it all year round.

A New Year

I am not making a new resolution, I think it is a waste of my valuable time!!! I have also discovered that one thing I have not given up for this year of 2012 is my procrastination!! My decision is to try and improve.
Getting ready for ACTS in Halifax on February 4 - 6th. You think that you are ready but you never are. Today I am going to check my inventory and see what I still need for samples, that will be a good stat.
Have a little cooking to do, it's pot luck for BEDA (Bonaventure English Harbour Development Association) Board members tonight, old man winter had better co-operate.
I have been working on a few new hat designs, how many times can you invent the same hat, after all it is a hat to cover the head and keep it warm with a bit of style and fashion sense, don't you think? Here is a pic of my granddaughter wearing one of the new designs.

Well it's on with my day. Have a good one and for those knitters out there, happy knitting.
