I know it’s been forever since the last shop update, but I promise there’s a good reason for it. Behind the scenes chez Splityarn it has been crazypants with fabric cutting and sewing.


Along with the next shop update, I’m also preparing for two events. The first I’ll be selling at is the Squam Art Workshop in New Hampshire on June 6th. You don’t have to be attending the workshops to come and play. In fact, there’s going to be a big ol’ Ravelry party that night too.

 ready for the next step

The second one I’m cranking out bags for is…(drumroll please) SOCK SUMMIT in August in Portland, Oregon. I’m kind of freaking out about it. I’m so excited! And also terrified! It’s going to be like a world expo for knitting.
So many knitters, all in one place. Have you seen the teachers list? Name an influential knitter and I swear they’re going to be there teaching a class.

this pile frightens me a little

The vendor list for Sock Summit is amazing too. I’m honoured to have been chosen. I’m basically going to be sewing 6 days a week in preparation. So many boxbags! Wee pouches! Camera straps! It’s blowing my mind a little. Actually, it’s blowing my mind a lot.
