The Intentional Spinner

I picked up the new book The Intentional Spinner on my way home from tap tonight. I've heard nothing but good things, and after a quick flip-through at Barnes and Noble I knew I had to have it. I managed a little spinning this week (finished a bobbin of BFL), but the main event has been finishing design samples and tech editing lately!

Speaking of which, in the past couple weeks I've knit a design for Yarn Forward (I really love this magazine-- so glad you can find it here now! I've always been as much about articles as designs in knitting magazines) and one for Louet. Right now I'm in the midst of a pile for Mission Falls (so glad I love to knit with 1824 wool!)

The edits for the next (summer) issue of Love of Knitting (comes out in April) are just wrapped up too. If you love lace, you will love this issue! There are other things, of course, and some kid and home items, but the major focus is lace. My friend Jae has 2 nice designs in it, plus 2 from me as well.

Getting paid to knit with 1824 instead of paying for it? Lucky!
