I actually added dates to my google calender.
I created swatches and samples and, get this, MAILED THEM.

Right now I am waiting for yarn for several print projects. (book and magazine)
also Stitches West is looming over ahead, just a few weeks away. This is always a good show, unlike the hit and miss if the midwestern shows. IPS has almost 3000 users now.

Today I also created my own planning/action worksheets. I love behance products but needed a better fit to me. Their sheets wont ask for yarn weight, gauge, needles used.
So tweaked a bit and ready to go. Also ones for planning meetings and crafty classes.
I was trying to read my notes from KnitLab, and all the wonderful info from Ann Budd and Donna Druchunas is mishmashed on pages.
This way I can rewrite (and hopefully not have to rewrite future classnotes) and get a better record of information.

On The Needles: Lisa Souza Superwash Merino Sport
YUM! I love this yarn
I can't tell you what I am making, another secret project BUT it is SO cute!

On The Needles: Tactile Fiber Arts Sierra Sock
Thanks to Sock Summit, I met Maia. She is amazing! We always have so much fun together. At KnitLab we had dinner together almost every night. Great Food and Company.
Sampling and swatching and making socks in this squishy yummy Sierra Sock, makes me so happy. I am working on an unconventional sock, with crazy structure.
Yes It is also a secret and I can not show it.

and last but not least
the Scarf of Shadows Sherlock Scarf is a fairly good length, but I want to make it extra long.
This is made from KnitPicks City Tweed DK. admittedly, I would have never tried this yarn if Shmuli had not asked me to make this scarf. But I also love this yarn!It is going to be such a luxurious scarf. I am now wondering what else I can Make with this yarn. I Love IT! (is there yarn I hate, you may be asking. Yes, Yes There Is! but I am keeping that to myself)
