I’m on a plane to Phoenix today, headed for the winter trade show. Last winter in San Diego was when I wore my one-armed Acer in the Hyatt lounge one night while drinking with a bunch of knitters. This year I’m taking my Amanda with me with the full intention of wearing it to the actual show on Saturday — and I haven’t packed a backup. So instead of doing a Monday blog post last night, I worked on my button bands. If it’s not done, will I wear it all day without finished bands or buttons? Let’s all hope/pray we don’t have to find out. And yes, that means there’s almost surely no blog post for Monday. Sorry! But hopefully these links will keep you busy for a bit—
– Could use a scarf like this about now
– Can’t wait to see where Carrie Hoge is going with this
– Love. This. Girl. (thx, Anie)
– The making of Clara’s cormo (I’m saving this to read on the plane)
– Jen’s wardrobe plan makes me want to sketch again. Also: Mesmerizing
– and have you ever seen a more beautiful yarn cabinet?
ON A SEPARATE NOTE: We’ve restocked the concave horn buttons, narrow-rim horn/bone buttons and soft concave corozo buttons and have expanded the size and color variations available in all three. DG will be shipping today as always! And I’ll do my best not to run off with whatever is left upon my return. That is seriously a whole lot of beautiful buttons.

Good luck! And making your own jeans? That look that good? That’s astounding!
I really enjoyed today’s post, as I enjoy all of your posts. There is so much good stuff out there and thank you for sharing it with us! I’m still getting over handmade jeans…
You’re going to be stiflingly hot in that sweater, just hope you know. It’s in the mid 70’s down there today, and in the mid 50’s where I live up north.
It’s half cotton and pretty thin so should be just right for the convention center.
Ah, Phoenix. Tell the sun I said hello.
That cabinet !!! Swoon.. I think I have plans for my yarn stash.
