No, not Michigan's Adventure (of which I have fond childhood memories, especially after they added the water park. I get unreasonably excited about water parks). After a great trunk show at Country Needleworks in Jenison in late December, I'll be returning to teach several different workshops, sign books, and hang out and knit. You can see the calendar of events here.
Country Needlworks has a TON of different yarns, and I hear they're stocking up on different fingering weight options in preparation for my Color Theory and Albers Cowl classes, which are fingering-weight color pairing fiestas!
Speaking of color pairing, we've been working on the studio, which now has heat, a custom-made work table, 8 feet by 4 feet (Chris' Valentine's Day present to me):
and window frames that I painted in two different yellows (first coat):
and, come Thursday, there will also be CARPETING.
As for the knitting, it's been sweaters sweaters sweaters, none of which I can show you. Sweaters for men, sweaters for women, sweaters knit in one piece, bottom up, top down, knit in pieces, raglans, side-to-side sweaters, intarsia, stranded patterns, cables, cardigans, pullovers, sweaters sweaters sweaters. I am SO WEARY of designing sweaters that when I finish the final sweater in this march of sweaters (currently in progress!) I'm going to enjoy a dedicated month o' accessory designs! I'm motivated!
