Things have been so busy here lately! Tomorrow I jet out for Tucson for the Arizona Book Festival! So much has been going on I felt it easier to put it all in one post!
CREATIVE MOJO RADIO SHOW
I was so honored to be a part of the Creative Mojo lineup! We had a fantastic discussion about fantasy books and the creative process and I’m even more excited to announce that if you missed the live show last Thursday, you can download the show now! Head to the Creative Mojo page to check out all of Mark’s work, or you can download the MP3 directly from this link! It’s great to listen to if you’re just relaxing and knitting!
ARIZONA BOOK FESTIVAL
Tomorrow I head for Tucson for the Arizona Book Festival and I could not be more excited! The festival is something that I’ve wanted to be a part of for a long time, so when I got the call inviting me to be there I definitely danced around the kitchen a little!
This Saturday, March 15th I will be at the Children’s Area from 2 PM until 4 PM showcasing The Knitting Witches and chatting with anyone who drops by to talk about the fantastical world of the witches! Finding my spot is easy as there is a detailed map of the festival located in various places around the arena, so make sure you pop by to say hello! It’s also important to note that all of the profit from this festival goes directly to Literacy for Pima County, helping children and adults to learn to read!
Our second Broad Band pattern comes to you from designer Sharon Mooney. Sharon is teaming up with Cheryl Potter of Cherry Tree Hill to create a sequel to Lavish Lace called Amazing Lace. In this second book, Sharon plans to using some of her beaded and non beaded lace designs and Cheryl’s handpaints.
Two of the garments focus on the use of new shifting shades Broad Band yarns. One of them, called the Kingfisher Shawl is available for your preview. This garment is knit from just one hank of Broad Band in the colorway Winterberry. There are 25 Broad Band handpaint available on a silk and merino fingering weight base.
