Here I sit, back at the home office after flitting to Sacramento and back again in three short days. The frames from the Saturday shoot are downloading. I am trying not to think about the seventy-eight sunny degrees I left in California because I'm afraid my abundant tears will short-circuit the keyboard.
Thanks to your support, 1,000 Knitters is taking off. October was so busy that two past public shoots are waiting to be written up (that'll happen over the next two days) and there are a few more in the pipeline–details forthcoming. I will tell you that while in Sacramento (sniffle) the project hit the one-quarter mark.
Other work beckons right now, however, so this entry will be brief. I wanted to let y'all know that Chicago knitwear designer Bonne Marie Burns will preside over a fashion show of pieces from her line, Chic Knits, at Loopy Yarns on November 9 from 6–9 p.m.
Full disclosure: Bonne Marie is a friend and occasional employer,* a warm human being, and a helluvalotta fun. However, she's such a talented woman that even if she were a rampaging, cat-kicking bitch on wheels spit straight outta Satan's mouth I would probably still plug her show.
*The front page photo of Twist on her Web site is mine, as is the shot in the show announcement. Mommy and Daddy are proud.
