I turned 30 on Saturday. Lacie and I were able to spend the night away and enjoyed some much needed alone time. It’s nice to recharge just before spending the next few days with family.
Sunday we celebrated the holiday with my mom’s side of the family. We ate tamales and got caught up with relatives I only see a couple times a year. All in all it was a nice time.
But all I really wanted to do was work on the special surprises I have for all of you. We’ve got some fun stuff coming in the next few days and I can’t wait for you to see!
There’s lots more great stuff below, so check out our pattern finds, announcements, and all of last week’s stitches.
Don’t forget to answer our question of the week at the end of the post!
Welcome to Our New Email Subscribers
It’s been a week since our last update and we had another 364 people coming on board the New Stitch a Day email list! We’re very excited to welcome you to the NSAD family!
Preview of Knitting Helpline
Like I said, I turned 30 a couple days ago, but rather than running a sale to celebrate I thought I’d do something else.
We’re giving you a sneak preview of our new show Knitting Helpline!
Our first guest is Anne Hanson of Knitspot.com. She’s a prolific knitwear designer and a world renowned teacher. It was a blast answering your knitting questions with her and I’m so excited for you to see the result!
We’ll start weekly episodes beginning in January but enjoy watching this sneak preview.
Show and Tell!
I got a lot of photos from people of their projects so let me share them with you. (Click the images for a larger version)
