My current work in progress:

1. Strandwanderer, designed by Lea Viktoria, knit from Wollmeise Merino "Pure" in the "Zenzi" colorway on a 3.25 mm (U.S. size 3) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Let It Snow

We’ve got another “major snow event” blowing through here tonight and tomorrow, so once again the federal government is closed and I am at home. Snow is supposed to start . . . well . . . any minute now.

Things had better be all clear by next Monday, because I’m doing a mini-trunk show at fibre space in Alexandria, Virginia.

And here’s a good reason to stop by — they will be having a big Presidents Day sale! Here is the info, shamelessly lifted from their newsletter:

We are delighted to announce our first big President’s Day Sale!

Monday, February 15th
10 am – 7 pm
We are making room for new Spring and Summer yarns by putting many of our favorite winter fibres on sale. Discounts will be from 10% – 40%. Find sale prices on Kathmandu Tweed, Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky, Berroco Cuzco, Malabrigo Chunky, Shokay Yak and much much more. All single patterns will be 30%-40% off.

And here is the bit about me. icon smile Let It Snow

Knitwear designer Wendy Johnson will also be at the shop on President’s Day from noon – 2 pm along with a mini trunk show of her three newest shawlette designs! Meet Wendy, purchase her patterns and ask questions about the projects. Her new three designs can be worked up in only one skein of sock yarn.

Fibrespace will have copies of my one-skein shawlette patterns for sale (Argus, Seaside, and Miss Woodhouse), and I’ll be there with the original shawls for you to see, fondle, and try on. I’ll be happy to answer questions about the designs, offer my opinion (whether or not I am asked) on your yarn selections for each design, and just generally hang out to knit and chat.

Oh, and I’m betting I’ll do some shopping too.

Speaking of fibre space, the other night I signed up for fibre space’s new new Fibre Girl club. You can read about it from that link.

And I’m just sayin’ that I may or may not be providing a pattern for one of the club offerings somewhere along the way . . .

Current Knitting

I’m making good progress on the second Manly Aran sock.

The red lacy thing from yesterday’s blog? I’ll show you that tomorrow. That is, assuming I have electricity to power up the ‘puter and access the internet. We are supposed to have blizzard-force winds tonight and tomorrow, so if you don’t hear from me, you’ll know why.

Lucy is on snow watch.
