It's been a long time since my last post, and I'm not eactly sure why…a secret knitting project (still unblogable I'm afraid), a visit from my sister, busy work schedule, 100+ degree heat, the mysterious disapearance of our photo editing program…

So here's the month in a nutshell:

There was the launch of a new accesory line: Picture 052  Picture 051 bold earrings and ethereal beaded rainbow veilsDSCN3737

I knit the uterus in a lovely pink variegated Koigu (you'll have to take my word for it, I gave it away before photographing).

Crocheted a bag for my sister (needs to be lined and photograhed).

Indulged in the fabulous summer books sales at Interweave and Knitpicks and added the following books to my shelves: Knitting America by Susan M. Strawn, a wonderfully illustrated history; Selbuvotter  by Terri Shea filled with gorgeous historic glove and mitten patterns; Elizabeth Zimmerman's The Knitters Almanac, my first EZ book and just the thing to push me into the free shipping bracket, and Nancy Bush's Folk Knitting in Estonia. So you can imagine the lovely time I've had mentally journeying through time and space through the knitter's eye. 

And cast on for a funky, colorful version of  "Hey Teach!" from the Summer Issue of Knitty.  Both sleeves and back are nearly complete.  Picture 050
