Back to the Snowy Mountains

I am torn. While I really do love being home, I left behind palm trees and sunshine in California and returned to snow in the mountain desert. I got a lot done at TNNA, including sourcing the yarns for my next collection (the focus of which is Modern Colorwork, and you will LOVE it!), launching […]

Free Pattern Release: Fenced In Afghan

Boy have I been busy! The new collection is almost ready to go, and I’ve been hard at work on holiday projects. One of them was so much fun, I thought you’d all like to knit it too! I wrote up the pattern and now it’s available for free. This cozy afghan is knit in […]

TNNA Recap

The thing I love most about TNNA is that no matter who you’re talking to, no one has a problem with you talking about fiber. It’s like coming home. When you say “left leaning decrease” no one cocks an eyebrow at you, and no one says “Is that from a sheep?” when you say mohair. […]

Head… exploding

A half day of work combined with an afternoon flight across the country don’t make for a very stress-free Mim. Too crazy to really blog, but I made a commitment (to myself) to blog every day this week, so here it is. I’ll try to blog as much as possible from TNNA, but I’m not […]

No pictures yet.

I have pictures, they’re just in my camera and I haven’t had the time to process them yet. On Monday night I was busy finishing the sweater, last night I finished my heretofore unseen Thelonious socks right before I left to go to knitting, and this morning I needed to shower, so there’s been no […]

TNNA Post #3: Coming Home and the recovery knitting

Something that should have been in yesterday’s post, but I forgot. In the exhibit hall there in the Conjoined Creations booth there was a familiar site! (apologies for the craptastic photo) They had sold a lot of their soysilk laceweight yarn (Pastimes, the hand painted version and Pastimes, Too, the solid version) using Icarus as […]

TNNA Post #2: The Exhibit Hall, The Fashion Show and Saturday

If you missed my post yesterday, please take a look. I’m searching for a levenger or rollabind punch for cheaper than retail. The Exhibt Hall: HUGE. Ginormous even! There were even birds flying around in the rafters and swooping down at people while they tried to record podcasts. It was like 3 football fields stacked […]

TNNA Post #1: Friday Mostly

On Friday morning (after flying in at almost midnight Utah time) I awoke early for a class with Annie Modesitt on Cables & Lace. I learned to cable without a cable needle (which is surprisingly easy, but totally hard to figure out on your own), and got a bunch of nifty ideas. Annie has a […]


Hi all, I just wanted to let you all know I’m not dead.  I arrived home on Monday morning, but I haven’t blogged because I’ve been busy keeping my bed warm, wearing pajamas all day, and knitting like a maniac because I realized the Book Project 1 & 2 deadline was NOT the end of […]
