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 […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
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 […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
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 […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
“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.

Bill and I are leaving town […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
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 […]Continue Reading...

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 […]Continue Reading... Comments Off on Getting to the finish line, with the Craftsy Plaid mitt!
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 […]Continue Reading...

I’m in the mood to knit Annetarsia! How about you? 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.
