  • Next step: Boring Post Office

    Posted on June 30, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog.

    This first wave of books went all over the world, and there were a gratifying number of them being sent.  It was apparent that a trip to the Post office was in order.  But, which one?  The post offices near home and office were small, old, and slow.  Taking them in was going to be […]

  • “Annetarsia Knits” travels

    Posted on June 28, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog.

    Last night, Lindsay and Jon arrived in Sunriver bearing boxes of books.  This morning I set up the workstation, and today is dedicated to getting books ready to mail to knitters.  Sunriver is where the photos for the book were taken, so it is rather appropriate that this step is taken here, too. Tomorrow, Lindsay […]

  • “Annetarsia Knits” hits Portland!

    Posted on June 25, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog.

    Of course, it has to arrive when I am out of town!  We had already delayed one day, and couldn’t wait longer, so Bill, the cats and I, headed to Sunriver.  Jedi decided to copilot. Then, today, the truck arrived at the office! The staff (William, Kendy and Jenn) all pitched in to unload the […]

  • Still waiting…

    Posted on June 24, 2014 by annetarsia in About Anne, Blog.

    “Annetarsia Knits” was supposed to arrive, today. All day long, I was pestering the staff.  “Are they here, yet?” Finally, at 3pm, I called Unicorn Books and Crafts to see if they could find out where the books are.  Bless Josh’s heart, he made some calls, and discovered that there was good news, and bad […]

  • At Loose Ends

    Posted on June 23, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog.

    It is just unbelievable how much the timeline of birthing a book resembles birthing a baby.  Everything is now ready for its arrival. The mailing materials are ready, the labels are written, space is cleared for the boxes of books.  And I feel the same way I did when I was past my due date […]

  • Anticipation…..

    Posted on June 20, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog.

    “Annetarsia Knits” entered the Unicorn warehouse this week, and 34 cases of books immediately were put on new transport and left the building.  32 cases are coming to me, and 2 cases to Village Yarn and Fiber, to be distributed to the Dizzy knitters who helped shape the book.  Bill and I are leaving town […]

  • The Longest Day

    Posted on June 14, 2014 by annetarsia in Blog.

    June 21st was my Gramma Gray’s birthday.  I always remembered her birthday because it was on the Longest Day of the year. Gramma was very important to me, growing up – she and Grampa moved across the country from Ohio to be with us after they retired, and they supported me through lots of tough […]

  • Getting to the finish line, with the Craftsy Plaid mitt!

    Posted on June 11, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog, Classes.

    Yep, taking care of the ends was about a 10 minute job.  I got it done at the office, while waiting for all of the computers to boot up.  There is a little pile of ends to show for it.  Although I haven’t knit the thumb yet, and it still needs to be blocked, I […]

  • Annetarsia -the “Cat spit” stage

    Posted on June 10, 2014 by annetarsia in Annetarsia Knits, Blog, Classes.

    It happens to everyone, even me.  Those of you who think that I escape the Cat spit stage because I am magic, or something…no.  Not true. To prove it, here is the Craftsy plaid mitt that I knit last night. I didn’t do any tidying as I went, this is right off the needles, and […]

The PDF for “Annetarsia Knits” goes live on Monday, the Craftsy sale is bringing lots of new students to “Next Steps in Intarsia” , and I want to knit along with everyone that I hope is picking up their colors and giving Annetarsia a whirl.
