What a blur!

Fall has flown by in a blur!  Which is always the way it is for me (and I suspect many other yarny types).  Since NYS Sheep & Wool I've been to Chicago for Vogue Knitting LIVE and Canandaigua, NY for the Knitter's Review Retreat not to mention NYC for a couple of classes at Purl SoHo.
I have pretty much no photographic proof that I was at these events but I swear I was!

This is me & Kristen who came to help out in the booth while Ysolda was signing her new book The Rhinebeck Sweater. Because, let's face it 90% of the fun at fiber fests is sweater spotting, I'll tel you I'm wearing Each Stitch in Mohonk and Kirsten is wearing Party Mix in Hudson.


And here is a pic (obviously from almost the same moment) of me & Ysolda, she's wearing Laura Nelkin's Artichoke French from The Rhinebeck Sweater made with a skein of Empire.

I'm back home and busy shooting all sorts of yarn plus working on a couple secret projects I can't quite tel you about yet.

But I can tell you that I'm super psyched that Lee Meredith designed a hat (well, actually 2) in Hudson for the latest Holla Knits collection.

I have been a huge admirer of Lee's designs for a long time, especially since Cal Patch wears her Vortex EVERYWHERE. One skein of Hudson makes both versions of the hat so you don't even need to decide which on to make!  Allison has a skein to giveaway if you pop over to her blog and make a comment you're in the running.

The accessory collection is quite beautiful, I an especially enamored with the heart cut outs on the gloves & the colorwork hood. I'm so proud to have played a small part in this collection!

What's on your needles & hooks these days?
