The blog has been quiet which means we have been extra busy. Last week was spent packing, counting and re-packing our inventory for Stitches West. How much should we take? Is this enough? Or is it too much? When all was said and done we made our best guess, packed it up and shipped it out.
A glimpse at the mountain of boxes. It was an exhausting process to pull it all together and a huge relief when it was all done.
There are still lots of loose ends to tie up. Over the weekend I cast on this booth sample.
It's not very often that my knitting project coordinates so well with my coffee mug - I had to capture the moment. This neck warmer is Anne Hanson's Cité in Classy Sox Smoke. The cashmere in this yarn makes a soft, cozy fabric which is perfect for next-to-skin wear. The pattern is easy to memorize and a quick knit.
The Valentine's Day holiday was a good excuse to do some baking. I made the dough, and the elves here did all the rest.
And it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without chocolate.
These fruit and chocolate combinations make for delicious colors.
