Rules for Feeding the Stash

Sunday Numbers

1. First things first, my blog is up to 500 pageviews!  Yay blog!!

2. If you've been paying attention, you'll already know that I have a new pattern out.  Please share with me any feedback you have-I want to keep improving both as a designer and as a vendor.

3. It's officially summer here in South Dakota.  I've got two fans going and haven't worn my hair down in a week.

4. That doesn't mean I'm not knitting:  I've got just one toe left on Midsummer Night's Dream.  They'll definitely be done tonight, in plenty of time for their Tuesday due date.

5.  I also have visible progress on Heartmate, which is such a refreshing knit after nothing but socks the past couple of months.

6. I have a craving for lace-weight sweaters.  I got some discount cotton crochet thread that I want to make into a pullover with a wide neck and dolman sleeves and a high-low hem.  (I accidentally bought 3000 yards of the stuff, so I'll probably have a matching cardigan.)  I also pulled out some Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Lace that's been in the stash for about a year.  I think that wants to become something like Featherweight

7. I still need to order yarn for my brother's birthday present, and for the blanket for the August baby. And yarn for another pair of Mum Socks.  (And maybe yarn for a Top-Sekrit Project.  Shh.)

8. I have to travel for work again this weekend, and I need to figure out what knitting I'll bring with me this time.  Almost definitely Heartmate, depending on how much gets done this week, and probably Sockhead, and maybe Mottled Daydream if it gets its act together and finishes frogging itself.  But at this point, pretty much all bets are off.  I've even been known to cast on new knitting for a trip ten minutes before I leave.
