Accomplishments of the Week - June 10, 2018

Accomplishment #1

This past week has been a tough one: teething baby, husband with a week-long migraine, preparing to move house in 3 weeks... so my first accomplishment has been to sort our cd collection and actually start packing a few boxes. Still a long way to go, but it feels good to have gotten started.

Accomplishment #2

The thing that's kept me going through the stressful week has been my knitting. I'm working on a new sock pattern using Pizzicato in the Palestra colourway to be released next month. It's very simple, so a good project for me right now when I'm only able to knit a few minutes here and there.

My son really loves the colour and has asked for a pair of socks for himself if there's any yarn leftover. I'm not sure I'll have enough for a full pair of socks, but I do have some grey Cobblestone left from another project, so between the two I should be able to make a pair of boy's socks.

P.S.Check out my new J Hendry project bag I picked up at Fibrefest. Kittens and yarn, so cute!

I hope you move goes well and I hope Paul feels better soon, migraines are hell. I can’t wait for the sock patter to come out, I love it.

Our bulky-weight Presto yarn is a great choice for a quick and gratifying fall project, and we're really excited to announce the publication of four new patterns using this yarn.

We sent a skein of Presto each to three different indie designers at the beginning of the summer, and they've all come up with great ways to use this soft and squishy yarn. In fact, we were so inspired by their patterns that Elizabeth decided to add a design of her own to the collection!

One of the best parts of living in our new neighbourhood is being close the Jean-Talon Market, my favourite market in Montreal. I've been taking full advantage of it and going about once a week or so to pick up fruits and veggies, much of it for freezing and canning for the winter.

For the past few months we've been using this blog to celebrate our accomplishments, both big and small, and we want to celebrate your accomplishments too! And because we love to send special packages in the mail, we'll be giving away a prize. Please see the end of this post for all the details.

This summer has been very full, mostly of good things, but sometimes it gets a bit hard to keep up. So this week I've tried to focus on some accomplishments that are about taking care of myself, and allowing myself time to play.
