What I've Been Up To

Hey everyone I thought I'd give you all a lil update on what's been going on with me before I sit down and spend the evening drawing. It's been busy here but good.

I was able to do something that as far as I know I am the first and only person to do so. I knit on a roller coaster!

I also took a stab at dying my own yarn. I'm really happy with how it turned out!

I call the colorway Golden Birthday. I knit a hat to wear on my birthday this year which happened to be my Golden Birthday. So clever I know lol. I finished on the train going to the bar. I finished knitting and weaving in the ends and put it on and walked of the train. Here's a pic from the night with my friend Alyssa .

 Work has been going really well. We just had our Fall Yarn Tasting at Windy Knitty. We also had a color theory class given by the very talented Amy Hendrix, dyer behind the beautiful color ways of Madelinetosh. Here is a picture of us with her holding my sock-in-progress.
We also had the very talented Stephen West of Westknits stop by the shop and knit for awhile. He was also kind enough to hold my sock. Which was awesome because the first time we met I didn't get the chance to get a pic.
So things have been good here. I will try to be better about updating with more strips or at least blog posts in between. Till next time. Happy Knitting!
