More Good Fortune!

Last week, I got yet another acceptance of a pattern, this time for a little girl's dress. Being so overwhelmed already, I was going to decline. But the design is named after my baby granddaughter, and I was a little bit sentimental about seeing her name published.

So I took the advice of my friend Ellen (thanks, Ellen!) and looked for a test/sample knitter. I got several very accomplished knitters applying for the job, and I went with someone from my local knitting group. I feel I can trust her to get the job done on time, and I know she is a great knitter. Whew!
I am such a mogul -- outsourcing my work!

We just got back from a wedding in Montreal on the Labor Day weekend, and spending Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) in NYC with family.

The wedding was very nice: here's a new thing - the bride wore a beautiful burgundy red silk dress. The bridesmaids wore cream dresses with burgundy red sashes.
Is this a new trend to non-white bridal gowns? Please enlighten me!

We were also fortunate to get tickets to the closing ceremony of the Montreal Film Festival. They announced and presented the awards, and then showed the closing film, La Princesse de Montpensier, a period drama about 15th century France.
Such an elegant evening, and lots of fun!

When we arrived home on Sat. packages of yarn were waiting for me for 3 of my projects, so it's time for swatching and pattern writing and knitting.
Talk to you soon!

  1. Oh she's so cute!!!! I imagine Montreal was the same as here for the long weekend....not the best weather that we've had this summer. But then again it's beautiful. I've really only been for a good visit once and driven through a few times but I really like it. Glad you got to see some of the film festival. Some day I'm going to get to Tiff and see a film. Just hoping some day something that my daughter has worked on will make it.

    I can't believe how many patterns you are selling. It's great!

  2. Finally, a moment to pop in and say hi! I didn't want you to think you were being neglected and ignored. It's been over a month since this post, I see, so I suppose you'll be blogging soon....?
