Are you still talking to me?

I’ve been having a hard time figuring out how to restart the conversation here on the blog. It’s like getting together with friends you haven’t seen in a while – in some cases I’ve visited you but it has been mostly a one way visit.

I feel as though I have so much to say, but no idea where to start.

The biggest factor in my silence has been THE BOOK. Yes, all my excess energy has been going into preparing a manuscript and patterns for a knitting book for Random House/Potter Craft. It has been a blast, but exhausting. The fun part has been working on it with friends – Gale Zucker and Kirsten Kapur. Here is a picture from the photoshoot in Connecticut last month – I wish I had more that didn’t show projects, since those have to be top secret until the big reveal, which will be in September 2016.

it's a wrap

I’ve been putting pictures aside to post of garden life,

and screenhouse knitting.  That was much of my summer, too.2015-08-01 07.52.04

I’ve composed lots of posts in my head about working with linen, testing the different button band pick up formulas, and what I’ve been reading.  I just finished the two Robert Galloway/JK Rowling books, and quite enjoyed them.  What’s your summer wrap up?
