I really hate being…….

I really hate being…….

sick! After a week plus of feeling totally like, excuse me but there is no other word, CRAP, I am finally on the mend. Being sick interrupts my entire life not to mention that I got absolutely nothing done. It’s so good to be feeling human again!

June will be a fun month even if the weather has started out rather rainy. I know the sun will be out soon. Some fun things I’m doing are the June Play Yarn Dash. This month I partnered with Sandra Singh to offer my Vallisneria Socks pattern in a kit with Cherry Tree Hill Supersock – very nice yarn if you haven’t given it a try yet. For only $21.50 you get a pdf pattern and the yarn – that’s a really good deal – $5.50 off the regular price.

And I’m giving another collection of my patterns for a prize…..June’s theme is Color so these patterns seem appropriate…………….

June 2009

I’m also adding a “Boutique” page to my site and will be listing finished items for sale there. First up is a unisex sweater my sister created – handspun & handknit. A rustic, perfect for outdoors sweater. Just have to get DS over here to model it so I’ll have some photos to upload. I’ve also been playing with making stitch markers so look for those soon too.

To close I’ll leave you with a teaser……..coming in July in conjunction with a blog tour will be a brand new pattern……..fun, yet practical, easy knitting………I think you’ll love it.

And, I am really looking forward to receiving my copy of “Midnight Garden” by Fiber Dreams – which I won in a naming contest – and is now released! Yeah! I really like Laura’s work.

That’s all Folks – for today anyway 🙂

Cheers! Jean

    I’m sorry to hear you’ve been ill, but your getting better so you’ll be back on track in no time! June is insanely busy for you, take it easy just being sick and all.

    Thanks for promoting the Sock kit! And your new Boutique sounds very cool, will it be on going?

    And Congrats on winning the contest!

      Thanks Sandra – I’m trying to take it as easy as I can until I’m back to 100% – just have a busy life I guess 🙂

      Yep, the boutique will be ongoing – whenever I have a finished item to sell I’ll list it. For the most part there will be one of a kind things.

      Winning the naming contest for Laura’s shawl pattern was pretty cool – I don’t usually win contests!
