It's a Sickness!

Ok, so I don't just mean my obsessive need to make things... this week Robert and I have been a little under the weather :( He is feeling better, I am still trying to catch up! But good news, my knitting machine arrived! as well as a swap from awesome Etsian Sheknitigans, some lovely handspun and some hand dyed roving. Been busy getting together the sock and lace club shipments, and working on the sock club pattern-- hint, hint members, it is performance themed!
Also made way on my Cashmere Cami and Swallowtail, trying to get some things actually finished! Jaimee and Ron were down visting from NYC this weekend, as always so great to see them, and Karen and I have been hashing over the new lace pattern that is on it's way... wait till you see it, stunning! All in all a heavy work week, but hopefully full of progress! By the way, check out the sale on Handspun in my shop!

Long Time, No Blog!

New Snowshoes Sock Club is here! Only 2 spots left!
Well, it's been a long time since I was last here blogging, busy busy as usual! Tons of dyeing, a lot of lace knitting, and some family time... Robert and I got back to AC for a day, and he also did the Please Touch Museum with his aunties from MA! I have been anxiously awaiting my new knitting machine, I am so ready to start making a bunch of clothes for winter! Got new cashmere for Ke's Christmas gift, started a Swallowtail in Noro Kureyon Sock ( as a test run for my mom's 50th b-day present), finishing up my Cashmere Cami and Robert's Claudia's Sweater hopefully in time for his birthday (and before he grows out of it!) Also, been busy with the lace club, getting the sock club started (test knitting the sock pattern for the club month 1) and hand dyeing new luxury silks and cashmeres for the shop-- and a cashmere lace for me for the MS4, which I just ordered some AB Czech glass beads for!

But most exciting of all, my Radio City Music Hall Lace Scarf
is up for Sale in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry, and we will soon be adding a beautiful spiral shawl pattern by Karen Walker of Heirloom Lace , check out her Etsy shop... Karen will be designing for No Two Snowflakes, and she is one talented lady!!! We are so lucky to have her lend her talents to creating heirloom lace shawls with our hand dyed yarns!
