Fellow Washington business, Wyze, offered their basic web cam to business owners with suddenly empty shops. I changed the notification settings on the app that notifies me of “disturbances in the force” today, and I’ve been amused to get alerts every time a passing car or pedestrian causes a change in the sunlight streaming in through the windows.

I’ve ordered a small photo light booth in order to standardize product photos at and will continue adding items there. This week, although the pattern is no longer free, I added kits for Casapinka’s Breathe and Hope Shawl. Putting together the combinations was so much fun. As I build out the online options, if there is something you need, but don’t see listed, please contact me for a custom listing.

A virtual KAL will be new territory, but I am looking forward to casting on my own Breathe & Hope shawl. It will be a struggle, but I plan to wait until Wednesday to cast on! I went with a high contrast option, with plenty of cashmere content (Candy Skein Luscious Fingering and Leading Men Fiber Arts Show Stealer).

Luminary Socks


I finished the first sock of the first pair in Helen Stewart’s The Handmade Sock Society Vol. 3. The Luminary Socks are fun to knit, and the second of the pair should fly now that I have the pattern repeat fully committed to memory. I used a skein of Leading Men Fiber Arts Callback, a superwash sport weight yarn that I ordered with the last batch of Show Stealer fingering. It wasn’t quite beefy enough for the inventory slot I was looking to feel, but it’s working up into a substantial sock.
