hi!

Yes, well that took a while! It’s been a busy, hot, interesting summer so far. Lots of activity happening with the family, all good, many changes happening, but it’s all good. The next few weeks look to be just as busy so I’m just popping in for a quick update.

Melissa and I had 3 market dates this summer at the Edmonds Summer Market. They all were tons of fun and we sold lots of yarn and patterns, including Missy’s new colourway: Game Day. It caught the eye of many local Seahawk Fans, knitters and non-knitters.

We have a 4th date scheduled for September 5th, but we are cancelling that for a couple of reasons. My daughter is moving that weekend to Toronto that weekend and I want to be here to have every last second to stare at her before she zooms off to fun and adventure in her new job.

The second reason we are cancelling is that we now have our yarn in a shop in Edmonds, WA!!! We are beyond excited and so happy to be working with them: All Wound Up, run by a mom and daughter, Leslie and Nona. They are so fun and welcoming, and supportive of local dyers. It’s a dream to be there.

Map and directions to get to their shop, if you’re visiting or live in the area, are in the sidebar. Lots of excitement and squealing on our parts!

I’ve been busy spinning some gorgeous fibres that we purchased at a local mill… lovely blends such as merino, alpaca, kid mohair, BFL, angora, just to name a few. They practically spin themselves!

I made another pair of our Ripple Wave Fingerless Mitts, just because… it’s been a while since I knit a pair and it was fun to do.

I’ve started on Stephen West’s Daybreak Shawl with some gorgeous yarn I bought at All Wound Up.

And I’m finishing up on my Kikusui Cardigan that I started earlier this year. I made a solemn vow in front of my knitter friends that I will finish it to wear this Fall and they will hold me to it! I’m just working down the sleeves right now and then I’ll be done. Look for a finished photo soon-ish!

Rather than repeat photos here, most are posted on my Instagram account and on our Emerald Lotus Instagram as well.

I hope you’ve been having a good summer 🙂  It’s hard to jump back into the blog world, but I really, really am going to try to keep going here.
