While attending the Campaign for Wool event last week at Bryant Park, I was surprised to get a text from a friend that my book, Metropolitan Knits, was posted for pre-order on Amazon! Sorry, no extensive sneak peeks yet, but I hope it is worth the wait. I’ve been diligently working on the finishing touches and final edits the past month or two and it’s almost finished. I believe I only have one more review to look over before it goes off to the printer. Very exciting!
Work has settled down a little bit and I managed to knit up a design for the Summer 2013 issue of Knitscene. It will be nice to return to the publishing world once again! I’m also working on a top secret project that is pretty exciting. What makes it even more exciting is the deadline is less than two weeks away! The needles will be flying this weekend, that’s for sure.
I also have way too many ideas swirling around in my head. It’s really nice to be inspired again. The hardest part is deciding what to knit first. What a wonderful dilemma to have!
As I briefly mentioned above, the Campaign for Wool made a stop in NYC two weeks ago and brought along a flock of sheep from Rhinebeck, a carpeted terrace area filled with wool couches, chair, and pillows, and a roving filled fountain. I really loved the fountain with the roving “waves” spilling out of it. The best part? It made everything around it smell like sheep! Quite an improvement to some days in the city. The sheep didn’t quite know what to make of New Yorkers and huddled in the center of their makeshift glass pen for the most part. I don’t blame them, although the crowds were certainly much smaller than at Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool!
I wish I could have stayed a little longer, pulled out my knitting, and relaxed at the tables set up by Knitty City, but I had to return to reality and get back to work. That work thing gets me every time. See you in Rhinebeck, sheep!
