Accomplishments of the Week - July 8, 2018

Accomplishment #1

I moved house. On July 1st. In Montreal. In the middle of a heatwave. July 1st is the traditional moving day in Quebec which means that a ridiculous number of people are all trying to move house at the same time.

So far in my 10 years in Montreal I'd managed to avoid taking part in this tradition, but not this move. I've never before had to book a moving company four months in advance or move in at the same time as someone else is still moving out. At one point I think there were about 18 people in the apartment - absolute madness. But we survived, and although there's still quite a lot of unpacking to do, I'm quite enjoying exploring our new neighbourhood.

And I'm looking forward to having my loom in a nice sunny corner with all my houseplants!

Accomplishment #2

I finished my Pizzicato Pinstripe socks and Debbie and I did the photoshoot for the pattern today. The pattern is written and ready to go, so we just need to do the last layout edits and proofread and it will be ready to publish! And I have enough yarn left paired with some other leftovers to make my son a pair of socks, so he's very happy.

We are so excited to be part of the KCM Ensemble Make-along!! Debbie threw the idea for this event out to our fellow Knit City Montreal vendors last week, and within a few short days we had an enthusiastic team making it into a reality. We're incredibly grateful to have such an amazing community working together to support each other in these uncertain times. ⁠

Maker's Bingo Update
Maker's Bingo Update

by Debbie Sullivan November 15, 2019 1 Comment

In the first few weeks of 2019 I noticed a lot of ideas for yearly project planning going around on social media, and the one that appealed to me most was the "Maker's Bingo" card I found on the Amusing Yarns blog. I figured it would give me a bit of direction and sense of working toward something without limiting inspiration throughout the year (I chose the version with 5 “free” spaces). Since we’re coming up to the end of the year I checked in on my card recently and marked off some completed projects.
