Postcards from the Pacific Northwest

(From top to bottom: yarn at Twisted in Portland; the line at Voodoo Doughnut; the view on the train from Portland to Seattle; dahlias at a Seattle farmer's market; a picnic on the dock at Seward Park; the view from the path at Seward Park; blown glass at the Chihuly Museum.)

A whirlwind three days on the other coast with some of my favorite people in the world. Rejuvenating, inspiring, reaffirming--the best birthday present I could have given myself. Here's to a wonderful year!

Birthday sale!

Oh, blog, I owe you so many posts.  I owe you posts on about seven designs (Stria! Harpswell! Rekaviður! Triangulate! Marlena! Mariella! And today, In August, Away!), two amazing past trips, (Iceland! Medomak!), two amazing upcoming trips (Portland and Seattle! Kniteast [still spots open in a couple classes--come join us]!), Stock(inette) Market (an amazing six-month retrospective coming soon!), and the general everydayness of my life.  I think at some point I need to declare blog bankruptcy and just move forward (and don't even get me started on how many of you I owe comment replies to.  That keeps me up at night).  But for today--big news! If you enter the coupon code "28on28" at checkout on Ravelry, you'll get 28% off almost all of my patterns (ones not for sale on Ravelry, Twist Collective, and Brooklyn Tweed patterns excluded)! Why 28? Because a week from now, I'll be turning 28 on the 28th--a true golden birthday.  I'm just starting the celebration a week early! The sale will run until the 31st.  Thanks for helping me celebrate!
