Knitting by Fires
Catch up blogging . . . Part One
2014 is starting out to be an insanely busy time. This being my first year as a full time knitting teacher and knitwear designer (goodbye office hours and subway commute – yippe!), I’m still learning where the crazily busy time are. October / November was one of them. Holy Kermoly, did I feel shot out of a canon in October . . . The Knit and Crochet Show, Houston Knitting Guild, Interweave Webinar, three designs due, Vogue Knitting Live Chicago, Stitches East and to top it off, my two Craftsy classes launched!
December was lovely. No traveling, not one business trip! Just time to catch up on working on the designs that were due, meeting up with friends, eating great meals and knitting by the fire.
The end of December David (the hubby) and I headed up the Hudson with three of our friends for a brilliant 3 day get away in a perfect house by a lake. I packed up a giant bag of yarn (for the many projects and proposals that were due) and we brought wine, games and food . . . the ingredients for a perfect weekend.
This was the view that greeted us each morning:
The trip was exactly what I needed after such a busy fall, there were walks in the woods by the icy Hudson
We took an amazing walk, during the magic hour, to a lighthouse and marveled at the sight and sound of the ice breaking up on the Hudson, followed by a perfect sunset, and warming ourselves by the fire (note the glass of wine by the fire!)
This was just the rest I needed before being shot out of cannon # 2, called Jan / Feb in this biz . . . more about that in the next installment of – “Tales of a Traveling Knitting Teacher: TNNA & Vogue Knitting Live”
