Time is on my side

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! For it being a short week it was very full and a little strange on top of that. Having a holiday weekend always makes the next one a little weird with things getting pushed and time being shorter. Having our weather changes certainly affected the sense of reality too! We've always said in Colorado that "if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes." As a native, one of the funniest things that would happen in college was all of the out of state kids rushing to the outdoor gear store when we would get the first cold snap of the year. Little did they know it would be shorts weather again the next day....

Need the three day weekend to pack it all in!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Hazy and ashy in my little corner of the Fort this morning. For once I'm actually hoping the forecast of rain and snow on Tuesday really happens and the cooler temps and moisture can help get the Cameron Fire under control.  So much is going on here that I need the three day weekend to fit it all in! Where to start?! Spin Off's fall issue came out on September 1st. This is my first time being in the magazine with my Crocheted Peddler's Pack that I spun and wrote the pattern for. The K.I.S.S. Shawl is finally available! The hardest part for me once I finish a piece is styling and taking photos so...

Changes, again.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Yes I'm back. The weather is finally starting to cool off and we've had a couple of rainstorms here in the fort that I hope have helped with the wildfires in the area. Pine Gulch and Grizzly Creek on the Western Slope are finally coming under control, I-70 is open again and hopefully the cooler temperatures will help contain Cameron as well.  So what have we been doing the last two weeks? Craft has been limited but still going. I've been doing lots of edits back and forth with the great team at Knitcrate as two of their upcoming boxes will have my patterns. I've also been doing some spinning for The 100th Sheep. Peggy has...

Finally Graduation!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It's cloudy and cooler in my little corner of the Fort so far today. I would love it if it would stay that way!  So what did we do this past week? I got the Knitcrate project finished and written up. Once I figured out the shaping it was a breeze and worked up in one day. It will be a part of one of their September boxes and go off in the mail tomorrow. I'm still knitting on my next self publish knitting pattern that will be here soon. I always forget how long knitted on edges take. It's only 16-20 stitches per row but then again there are a lot of rows. We...

A bit of fun and taking a breath

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Beginning to think that I should have stayed up when I woke at 430 as I was more awake then than I am now.  What's been happening this week? I've gotten started on a crochet project for Knitcrate. It should go fairly fast which is a good thing considering it's due at the end of the month. I will have two patterns out with them this fall. The girls are the ones that wrecked my sleep schedule by talking me into going to the drive-in on Wednesday night but really who could pass up a double feature of The Empire Strikes Back and Spaceballs? Even though we didn't get home until 2 am it was...
