Quick, quick

Muswell Wip

Quick, because I’m about to go on vacation!

-it’s official: the book is shipping; a trusted source has received her copy.
-Mary, I will get around to those silver streak refinements, but anybody who wants to cast on immediately (you must have air conditioning, that’s all I have to say…) can start with the back or the sleeves. I’ll write up a little page about the grafted buttonhole and casting on for the front bands when I return. Making it shorter is also fairly straightforward.
-Kim, yesterday’s bag is a sportsac: it’s a style called ‘every day deluxe bag’ and the pattern is named ‘pink lizard’. This particular pattern is discontinued, but I got mine off ebay.
-Isa, a lot of my older patterns are still available: there are some in IK back issues, as well as both of Melanie Falick’s most recent books. One of these days (yes, I’ve been saying that a lot), I’ll have an online portfolio.
-Wannietta‘s got the right idea; I think the next sock recipienrt will be chosen according to foot size. I guess that means the toddlers will be getting new socks soon.

And yes, Muswell will get another ear. I was so impatient to see his little head take shape, that I had to sew it on right away.

    Barnes & Noble.com is shipping it…but Amazon is slo-o-o-w even though they claim it’s in stock.

    It’s worth the wait!!

    As of this evening, your book is available at the Borders in Papillion, NE. And yes, I meant to spell papiillon with an extra i. It’s the way the locals spell it. And when they say it, it rhymes with ‘kajillion.”


    (I have MUCH LOVE for the book, BTW!!!)

    Yes, your book is definitely in the wild! I bought my copy on Thursday in Boston, MA and already spent many happy hours reading your notes, looking at patterns, and looking for appropriate yarns in my stash :)
