Brave New Knits is out. I'll post the far more sedate photos from the book later.

And check this out, too. New new new.

For my 33rd birthday, I sent my book to the printer for proof copies at 10:30 pm!

Then Chris made me birthday cookies with a lit match in place of a candle.

I visited my family in Michigan this past weekend, and we celebrated with this cake (Dud's 60th birthday, Mom's 60th birthday, my 33rd birthday, the upcoming book, all Lil Sis's success):

And I started a business, officially.

To top it all off, I still fit into my junior high graduation dress from 1989.

Isn't it cool that my digital camera managed to take this old-timey film mistake photo?

Brave New Knits preview stuff about ME!

I just received the best little present in my Inbox... an email from Julie letting me know that she's featured me in her latest Designer Spotlight for her upcoming book, Brave New Knits!

Check it out. And just wait until I can show you photos of my project. The inspiration is here.

So that's where I'm at.

Book content is almost done. T-minus 6 days until it's off to the printer for a draft copy...

I made a pie chart about my life these past few weeks.

So that's where I'm at.

Thursday was the Guumon show at the Jamaica Plain Art Market. If you're in the Boston area, it will be up until August 15! Here's a glimpse of all the Custom Guus made by different artists.

Check out more photos of the event on my Flickr page, and on the Guumon page.

And look, I found time to knit a washrag for a wedding gift!

I started a second one, too, but it languished in my bag for too long and turned into a snarl.

Then I was too sick to go to the wedding today.

That is all.

Honey, would you help me grind my sweater?

Most likely the first,
but certainly not the last
time a knitwear designer asks this question.
