Sunday I went to Lowell Open Studios, and actually brought a bunch of art! I went with the intention of seeing Amanda and getting some goods from her... but just had a great time. There are some amazing artists in her studio space. Some favorites are Frank Casazza (I got two pieces from his wood burned art 'City Bird' collection) and Made in Lowell (I got the button barrettes), and of course, Amanda.
Suzanne went with me to the Open Studios, and gave me my birthday present:
This is Branching out, from Knitty. I love it! I have this thing about knitting scarves. I rarely knit them - but I love wearing them! Thanks again Suzanne!
I'm very close to starting the edging on the Maple Tree shawl. I have 8 rows to go. I had previously thought that I only had until Weds (because I want to block it, obviously) but Amanda has 2 shawls out of this yarn, and says it'll dry in hours (it's tencel).
Just keep knitting, just keep knitting, knitting knitting....
