Yet with the cooler weather slowly coming upon us and the holiday season just around the corner, I don't see the busyness dying down any time soon. If anything, it's just going to get even more crazy busy! I better break out the calendar and Post-Its and start doing some heavy duty planning. In the meantime, here are five things I've been obsessed with in September:
1. Meeting Online Knitting Friends in Person
Ok, this was taken at a friend's knitterly baby shower, but I realized I didn't take any photos of my new friends!
And even though I met her for the first time at Fibrations (albeit for only a few minutes), I got to meet up with Rebecca of Nook for a knitting date. It's so crazy that we live in the same city and it still took months, maybe a year, to finally meet. Victoria isn't a big city, and yet we never even bumped into each other. And get this, we could have been neighbours! Rebecca used to live in my hood! Crazy, I know! Rebecca and I have been chatting through our respective blogs via the comments, through Ravelry, and then through lengthy conversations on Facebook. When we finally met up one-on-one our chatting really didn't skip a beat. It felt like I've known Rebecca for years and years. Aside from being obsessed with knitting, it turns out that we have so much in common. Our knitting date turned into an almost 5 hour knitting marathon! Our poor husbands, stuck at home with the kidlets...fending for themselves! Heh heh...
All of these meet ups have made me even more excited about Knit City (less than 2 weeks away! Eek!) and being able to meet even more internet friends (Aja, I'm looking at you!), fellow knitters and bloggers, and of course, some of you readers!! ♥
2. Visiting the SweetGeorgia Yarns Studio
3. Long Winter Farm
5. Drawstring Project Bags
I've been playing around with different fusings and stabilizers (for anyone who knows me, finding the perfect fusing/stabilizer is absolutely key for me!) and think I've found the perfect combo. Yay!! So do you know what that means? It means that this month I'll be adding a few drawstring bags into the product line up in my etsy shop!! Not a fan of the drawstring project bag? Don't worry, I'll still be sewing the zippered box bags!
