A handful of announcements

Today is very hot (and humid…gotta love Florida in the dead of summer), and I’ve been at the computer all day long. This is my last computer related item on my to-do list and then I get to go sit under the fan and crochet. So, this will be pretty quick. πŸ™‚

Item #1: Since it’s been brought to my attention that I didn’t clearly announce this a few weeks ago when I wrote that one post. Um, I won’t be at the Summer Knit and Crochet Show. Sorry, but due to health issues, I had to pull my classes. I just could not see making it through the whole week of activities and teaching classes. Especially considering that most days I feel the need to take a nap after running an errand. For the record, I don’t always take that nap, but the fatigue is there. I’m so very sorry and I will miss seeing all my friends. Y’all have fun and tweet away so I can be there vicariously. πŸ™‚

Item #2: I am, however, teaching another round of classes at Crochetville. You can see the upcoming schedule (starting in August) here at their website. I hope you’ll join me as the last round was a lot of fun. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have over there in the forums. πŸ™‚

Item #3: This one is really good news. The urge to crochet has bit again (which is good ’cause I was getting worried). I spent this weekend crocheting away on fun stuff for myself and for gifts. I’ve also got some little sparks of inspiration I’m hoping to fan into flames of designs, but we’ll see. I’m not pushing or rushing anything that’s going on right now. Thank you all for your support!

Item #4: If you wanted to get my pattern for the Fearless Scarf but didn’t get a chance to vote in this last round of Flamies awards, fear not! I wanted to have a period of exclusivity for the pattern (and to encourage everyone to go vote), but I was given the go ahead to release the pattern in my line. So…next week come back here for an announcement. πŸ™‚ It will be available and I’ll have all the info then. I need to do a double check and clean it up and get it ready to go.

Item #5: There are a few other designs that were in the finishing stage that will be coming down the pike in the next couple of months. I hope you’ll check them out when I get them ready. πŸ™‚

Okay, that’s all from me for this week! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and a great start to the week. Stay cool, all!

Now, I’m gonna tell you a secret…you’re not going to find the logo on my website. πŸ™‚ Part of that is because I need to move the site and haven’t made changes to it in a while over on the current server. But, if you go to my sidebar (which means if you’re reading this on a reader, you need to click through to the actual blog), you’ll find an interesting little link where you might maybe find the treasure photo. Just saying. πŸ˜‰ I can’t give it away, y’all gotta work for it.

But do check out everyone’s websites!

Oh, and what did I donate? An autographed copy of the Southern Lights Cowl pattern. Yes, a hard copy, in a sheet protector, with my messy little autograph on it. Looking at the list of participants, this is gonna be a cool gift basket. You should totally try to win it! πŸ™‚

I’ll have another post later this week (maybe, unless I hold it for next week) to announce a few other patterns of mine that have come out. Until then, have a fabulous week everyone!
