It has been a busy summer. From Stitches West in the Spring until now there hasn't been much time to rest....and all of it culminated in a big move for our family after my husband got a new job!
CHICKEN BOOTS now lives in Chico, Ca and Chico couldn't be more different than Blue Lake! We are enjoying it very much although there are still a few boxes lurking in corners. But what's my motto everyone? That's right! Chip away at it.
It is sandals and skirts weather every day here, my sweaters block overnight (it took a few days in Humboldt), and I had missed iced tea! I drink it every day now. Can you tell it wasn't very warm in Blue Lake? It was lovely and green though.
I guess now is the time to fess up: our chickens are still back at our old house. Yep, my chicken boots are not getting much use right now. But they we miss them and hope to find a way to bring them over in the next year. I think 4H is in my future.
I have been working though! And knitting! I finished two sweaters and finished a long anticipated design: Interchangeable Needle Case! I am also working on some crochet specific items as well as a long term project and a new website! It long past time to have one!
There are some great new fabrics coming out this month...Butterfly, Birds, Foxy and Night. Bees, Garden and Drops will stay in the line too! New clear Wristlets will be posting soon and the Pattern Holder is the top seller at the moment.
This weekend I am off to the Natural Fiber Fair in Arcata, Ca for some 'my ol' stomping grounds' fun! I had a great time last year and it was a well attended event. You know what I'm really looking forward to? The food. Yep. They have this lovely group of women who come and make a variety of dishes and all you hear in the dining area is folks marvelling over how yummy their lunch is. Seriously.
Hope to see you there!
And if not, check out our new Ravelry Group!! I am super excited about it!
Oh- And if you pick up the Fall 2012 Sockupied you'll see us in there too! Lots of exciting things happening around here! All thanks to you.
Until next time...happy knitting, crocheting and spinning-or drinking iced tea.
