Getting back on track!

One of the hardest things for me to do is to compartmentalize my personal life and studio life. I think that is a common theme for small business owners. Sometimes it is just plain old difficult to shut down one....they seem to merge into this big awesome, daunting, amorphous blob. Last week I was in Charleston, South Carolina and now I am back trying to figure out what I should do first. What I decided to do for now is just get back into info sharing so here I am. One picture from Charleston and one picture from knitting that I was doing while traveling. Charleston has these nostaligic beautiful southern homes with wonderful patio gardens and historic gateways. I love peering through the gates to see the lush greenery and vibrant flowering plants.

My knitting is a purse project that is from the Noro volume #27. One of our customers had started on one and I was intrigued by the shaping so I decided to start on one myself. The yarn I am using is Noro Furisode and the one they use in the book is Taiyo. It is going to have a lovely shape and interesting sling effect. Watch for the finished project!
