Aside ~ Fin d’un Beau Weekend

Home Sweet Home… Is where I can find all my stuff!

I don’t mind travelling but I’d rather not live out of a suitcase. A post about the events of the weekend is posted on the Artisan blog.

So, I’ve come home to over 600 emails between the two blogs and so… I’m wimping out folks. Gonna clear all but the direct messages and start fresh. If y’all weren’t so damn productive I wouldn’t have to raise the white flag!

My weekend went exceptionally well personally and professionally and I hope all is well in your parts of the world.

Cheers!

Outta Here!

Off grid (mostly) for a weekend of getting myself gathered and centred again. Still missing my Papasan but the business of living is a very good balm.
You kids behave while I’m away!
I don’t want to get any calls from the WP coppers about wild book signings (without me), any publicly dangling participles, rowdy root clauses and absolutely no antagonising antonyms!
Catch you on the overleaf Scribblers 🙂

The Needler’s Retreat 2015 begins this afternoon at 5:00pm. We will be having our usual private soirée with the official troublemakers and lovers of non-dairy creamer (Bailey’s) an hour or two ahead of that. I love these gals and it’s a treat to spend time away from all other concerns and be immersed in the craft we all love. BFF and I have the ‘honeymoon suite’ again this year. Yes. We really do call it that. You need a ‘backstitch pass sl st over’ to get in with the punk rock purlers 😀

I’ll be back with stories and photos next week and until then happy knitting and don’t ‘ss any knits or p2togs’ that I wouldn’t do!

Designer Spotlight: Filigree by Karin Bole Tupper

Super stoked to be able to share this! I was interviewed two weeks ago and the e-magazine just published a few hours ago. Design is what keeps me away from poetry at times, so here’s what I generally keep over on my Geek blog.

I am so excited (thrilled, honoured, humbled) to have been a feature designer on today’s Berroco Designer Spotlight.

Ashley Palumbo, Social Media Director for Berroco Inc. contacted me a few weeks ago to conduct an interview. Ashley saw my “Filigree” scarf pattern, worked in Berroco “Folio” yarn and got in touch with me.

Please read the article at the link below. I think I’ll take myself out for a fancy coffee to celebrate! 🙂

Wonderful Wednesday

Not so wordless today 🙂

One of the first things I saw this AM and still making me smile – yes, I’ve watched three times already – I am a crazy Mumma Bear for kids.

WordPress won’t allow the posting of videos on plebeian blogs like mine so I posted it over on my Blogger site. It’ll be worth your finger twitch for the smile. Promise.

Happy Dancing Wednesday

You Can Take The Girl Out Of The 80’s…

But you’ll never get the 80’s out of the girl! 😉

Goth-Stonians Legwarmers have gone live on Ravelry!

Please download and get creative – it’s free for the remaining month of August – a little kick-start to the beginning of the knitting season.

Fast, fun, affordable. One skein of Cascade 220 or any worsted, some imagination and these become totally unique.

Huge loves to my amazingly beautiful and talented daughter for supplying photos for me Hell no! You wouldn’t catch me on heels that high anymore – unless a palanquin and two studly dudes come with purchase!
