The adventures of a knit designer, her dog, and yarn stash. I'm the author of Doggie Knits, Sweaters and Accessories for Your Best Friend.

Last fall, it was the Blooming Nine Patch that took months to complete. (I'll admit to having lots of distractions, as well as the more complex design) This fall, I took the Stack and Whack class. I've wanted to take it for a long time, and missed the last time it was offered. This is a Kaffe Fassett fabric, I believe it's called Persian Vases. You stack eight identical repeats of a fabric, and then cut your pieces though the layers. Resulting in a kaliedescope effect. I put together my first one, with my setting fabrics, and it's a misshapen mess. So, this will take a long time to finish, and I'm sure that there will be many, many distractions along the way.
I feel like I'm always overcommitting myself. I take on projects that I don't have time to do to my satisfaction. Lucky Penny will be represented in three shops starting this week, and again, like this time every year, I find myself short on inventory. I suppose it's a good problem, but I need to be more disciplined about resolving it.
