I hope you had the sweetest of holiday seasons. It's been an unusually- even for me, who doesn't sit still easily- bustling month. My blogging habit evap-o-rated!
Above, a sneak peek* from yesterday's photo shoot in Portland, Maine for Swans Island yarns. Such lovely clients, such to-die-for designs, and oh yes, the donuts are awesome, too. So good we are swinging by the shop to get some before we leave town today. If I am allowed one teeny tiny kvetch, the temperature is -8F degrees...and it wasn't too much warmer while we were shooting outside yesterday. Although it was above zero. The warmth of squeezing in visits with friends Mary Jane Mucklestone and Samantha at A Gathering of Stitches made this work trip all the sweeter.
See you in NY next week, between January 13-18? ? I'll be at VK Live for funs and am so excited to be helping Jani from Starcroft Fiber at her pop=up Nash Island yarn in the City shop at lf8elevate at 80 east 7th street in NYC. If you'll be in town, come down! Jani's yarn and island wool, some knit and chats with designers you know and love, it is a charming, artful shop.. I'll have a limited edition set of Nash Island photographs mounted and cards just for the occasion. The special events are on Thursday evening 6-9 (with Mary Jane Mucklestone there) and Saturuday afternoon. 4-6 with Kay Gardiner knitting along .details tomorrow!
Stay warm, wherever you are!
* ok if you know me, you know how I can go on and on about how there's one main story per photo, and how wrong a photo shoot can go when you can't keep it straight. That, my friends, is definitely a photo about donuts.
