Shawl Geometry Book 3 is (briefly) off my desk!

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

Labor Day by the water

Shawl Geometry Book 3 is off my desk and to the marvelous Holly Priestley technical editor extraordinaire for the first round of technical edits!!! Huzzah!

But that does mean there was a bit of a scramble to finish tying up the loose ends before I sent it off. Luckily after I sent it off Monday morning, (which was Labor Day here in the US), I got to spend the rest of my day far away from my desk with absolutely no guilt.

Unfortunately, the tying up the last little bits and pieces meant that I still haven’t dived into any new fibery projects. I know I said this last week, but maybe next week.

Over on Who Wears Who, I styled and wrote about the blue kimono I first made as part of my Self-Made Wardrobe Project. I’ve now had this piece in my closet for over 3 years, and realized that what I love most about it is that it’s had time to collect some fabulous memories associated with it. Come over and read more about the blue kimono here.

Pulling together the loose ends of Shawl Geometry Book 3

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

Shawl Geometry Book Editing

Who Wears Who PreFall

This week and the next couple days I’m focused on pulling together the loose ends of Shawl Geometry Book Three before it goes to the technical editor in a couple days.

Unfortunately, that means I haven’t picked up any new fiber projects. Maybe next week.

Over on Who Wears Who – I’m realizing that my super easy vacation look also makes for the perfect pre-fall transition look! Who doesn’t love an outfit that can pull double duty?

You know it’s a good vacation when you don’t really take photos…

You know it’s a good vacation when you don’t really take photos…

I spent a couple days in Maine last week with family, I got back a couple days ago, and have been playing catch up ever since.

We spent tons of time boating and relaxing and playing with pupps. And I spent basically the whole time avoiding my computer and phone except when necessary. I didn’t take a knitting, spinning, weaving, or any other fiber project with me, instead I spent a lot of time reading.

And since I’ve been back I’ve been catching up on client work, and trying to get the third Shawl Geometry book ready to send to the technical editor.

But I’m itching to pick up where I left off weaving small square a couple weeks ago.

Over on Who Wears Who, I wrote about the outfit that I basically lived in all week in Maine. It’s more “styled” in the photos I took before I left, but it’s basically the same look. I talked all about it, and how I “unstyled” it for vacation right here.
