Quick post: my daughter Oona is participating in the Terry Fox Run this year. In order to help her raise her objective, I’m running a contest – anyone who donates anything over $5 will be entered in a draw for a sweater’s  worth of St-Denis Sommet (15 balls!) in the colour of the winner’s choice. Second prize will consist of a kit to knit this little Terry teddy bear as well as the magazine containing the pattern. Here is Oona’s page:

Thank you and good luck!

ETA: don’t forget to send me an email or to leave a comment if you donate – I know how to reach a couple of the donors so far, but not all. And I certainly don’t know how to reach ‘anonynous’!

Several snippets of news today – and well there should be, after so many months of silence…

Some time ago, I began to reconsider having a yarn line; for a variety of reasons, it was decided that it was time to let it go. So, as of today, the process of liquidating the yarn in stock has begun. Everything but the magazines, patterns and Briggs & Little yarn is 30% off the original price – the magazines are 50% off. Please note that all orders will ship from Canada, that supplies are limited and that sale prices cannot be applied retroactively. So, stock up!

In other news, I should add that the title of this post is not an analogy and that I am indeed back in school full time. Earlier this year, I enrolled in beauty school with the goal of becoming a hairdresser. Everything is working out great on that front, and I have been immersed in the world of hair for a little over 3 months. It’s about to get even more exciting later this month as we begin to learn the craft of hair colour…

With these announcements, some of you may wonder what lies next for me within the knitting world – I’ve wondered about this myself. However, a friend (pictured above – recognize him?) asked if I would be interested in joining his in house knitwear design team. Our first collection is finally unveiled this morning, which means I no longer have to keep it a secret. You can see the look book here
