And some that isn't.
Not much to say tonight. Would love to stay and chat, but Morocco calls. Had a bit of a setback today. Thought I had only one more pattern repeat before reaching the center panel, however, have stretched, measured, compared with other shawls I have and have decided to do another 6 repeats to increase length.
Frustrating, but something this enthralling (thanks for the word, Lucia) deserves to be done right the first time.
So, back to the long haul. Hopefully I'll have something new to show you in a couple days.
As to that news?
I have dropped my prices in order to be competitive within the market. So Celestial is now $5 and Cherry Country is $8. And no, I'm not going out of business; you don't have to call within the next ten minutes; this is not a limited time offer; and I don't have to pay the tax man on everything in inventory at the end of the month...
I am talking with Evelyn at Knitty Noddy about carrying my patterns. As Martha would say, "It's a good thing." Evelyn is a delight and I have been ordering from her, seems like forever. She has a great selection of yarns and her service is unsurpassed. Cross your fingers and I'll let you know if it pans out.
I have spent some time researching alternative yarns to suggest for the four designs that are currently available. You will find those recommendations in the sidebar, under each pattern picture & info. I hope this will help all of you who might like to knit with something from your stash, or who simply need a little advice on making the pattern your very own.
Cheryl's Arabian Nights is coming along splendidly. She is enjoying the pattern (WHEW! THAT'S a relief...) and the stole is everything I envisioned. So exciting to watch someone else bring something new to the project. I will definitely be using test knitters from here on out. Her input has been invaluable!
Now though, it's time to go back to knitting...
SLAVE, SLAVE, SLAVE...THAT'S ALL I DO FOR YOU PEOPLE... (yeah, right! LOL)
