Cup o' Knitted Goodness

Hi Knitters!

This lovely little mug sits on a table in my studio and I just keep adding knitted stuff to it. It looked so sweet I thought I'd share it with you on this dreary winter morning.

I was in Stitcher's Crossing buying up some Manos last weekend, when the woman working there, who is on the board of the Madison Knitter's Guild, asked if I would teach a class on knitted embellishments for a March weekend knitting extravaganza. How fun will that be? I haven't taught for awhile and I miss it so this will be a good thing. I said yes right away.

Then the added plus came. Guess who is coming to Madison to speak at this event? The one and only Annie Modesitt! I love her! She is a knitting superstar. I am so excited about this. I am honored to have been included in the line up, and getting to see Annie is just a big bonus. Her blog is fantastic and just hearing about her schedule for travel and knitting deadlines makes me tired. She is something else. Check her out at She also has a great interview with Marie Irshad from awhile back on Knitcast, so take a listen to that if you need entertainment while wrapping those gifts.

I will fill you in on the details about this event as it gets closer. Annie's coming to town and I am so there.

My daughter woke up singing only 5 days to go! My manuscript is flying out Saturday morning to arrive in New York by Tuesday. The mad scramble is on and I am determined to win this battle.

Gotta run.

best, susie

i ALWAYS Knit or crochet flower out of my yarn leftover and put them wherever I stop! So, your decorated mug gave me an idea!

Love those little flowers... I need to do more of that instead of hanging on to those little odds and ends. :)
So sweet!
Congrats on the knitting extravaganza weekend... sounds like fun! Wish it were closer to Calif.!

I saw you had visited Ihannah and followed your link! I would love to learn to knit and can only do a stockinette stitch and I think I remember how to do I move forward to hats, socks and things? Merry Christmas!

Hi! I just found you on Craft Sanity! You were great on the interview. We met years ago at the shop. It is great to see that you are still designing! The Knit-In for Madison Knitters Guild is always a great time and you will be a great addition! I've bookmarked your blog and hope to see you teaching around Madison more and more!
