to me from me

Sometimes, having a lot of projects that NEED to be knitted can be a drag. The lineup means you're not entitled to the thrill of a new project. Every year about this time, I set aside my current WIP's to charge into gift knitting, powering though to the Christmas deadline. I know exactly what awaits me in my knitting bag for the next 2 months. I'll be looking forward to my holiday of handknits, but it's nice to have a little incentive to make me finish those gifts on time - a light at the end of the tunnel.

So here it is - the project that I get to make for myself as soon as the list is complete!

Glows by Julia Mueller ,
knit with Dream in Color Everlasting Sock
(it's arriving at Knots sometime in the next week!)

To match my new coat, of course!

Yep, it's pink

Happy birthday to me, courtesy of Cleveland Craigslist. Salmon pink vinyl and formica are totally kid-friendly and play-doh ready. Just bring on the fingerpaints!

Pete's associate Jake made this video tour of the shop. Take a sneak peek of the remanufacturing process. Jake, want to come do a video of Knots?
