We got back last week from the big industry trade show. Not as action packed as in years past, but inspiration was found just the same. I am obsessed with some designers and some yarns, including the one I knit the Steppenwolf sweater in: Shibui Knits Pebble. Luscious. I am lusting after a few new designs that use this yarn. The garments that I like the most for me are simple in design, but have interesting construction details. One of the things that I noticed is that the designers that I like the best have something in common with me. Maturity. I was a little tickled by that, I must admit. So I have returned wanting to knit more. I am also approaching round two of me and book editors. We'll see how that pans out. A proposal is in the works.
I purchased another knitting machine. A standard gauge. I just now need to locate some transfer tools and latch hooks. Any apartment that I move into will have to include an option for storage. Rents have increased (according to the NY times, 30%), and the Lucky Penny studio/household may need to downsize, including getting rid of some furniture pieces.
