Wow, I turned on the Today Show this morning and guess who was performing? The New Kids on the Block! When (and why) did they make a comeback? They’re no longer new nor kids. They must be in their late 30’s by now. Gees, that brings me back to 1989… Let’s just say I used to be a big fan and leave it at that.
Yesterday I received Knitcircus Issue #6 in the mail. I’m continually impressed by the quality of this magazine. This issue contains some cute patterns, including a lacey blanket called Renee Baby Blanket by Staci Perry and lace shawl called Pivot by Michelle Miller, both of which I would like to make if only I had the time.
I’ve still got a pair of Morrocan Lace Socks from issue #4 queued… Aren’t they cute? I’ve been so busy with my own designs that I haven’t had time to work on anyone else’s. I’ve finished the item I plan to submit to the next issue of Knitcircus, but I still don’t have any photos to send with it. My little model isn’t available until after Mother’s Day. And unfortunately, all the photography genes were passed down to my brother, so doing a photo shoot worries me. Seriously, I’m that bad at photography. And yes, I’m still plugging away at my secret Knitty submission, which I am determined to finish by the deadline.
This past weekend my mom came to visit and brought her antique quilt for us to work on. Lisa is already a pro at quilting, and I’m still learning. The quilt is coming along great!
