Have you ever?

Hi Knitters,
I ran across this youtube video of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee knitting and it is fascinating. One time a couple of years ago I was in Lexington for a book convention and Stephanie was there. My friend, Dianne, took all of the knitters out to lunch and I sat across the table from Stephanie and watched her knit over lunch. I had never seen anyone knit in this style and I was mesmerized. Take a look:

I thought you might enjoy watching her knit. I thought I was fast-ish but compared to her I knit in slow motion. I wish I could knit like this, I would get so much done.

Okay, a couple of other quick things for you here. I bought this beautiful pattern and I can't wait to knit this up. I want to support Kate Gilbert's exciting and innovative new online magazine and I plan on buying more patterns from here in the future. Check it out, this issue has some fun baby and toy projects to boot.

Every time I go to read Kristin's blog I feel like linking her newest post here. I know I bring her blog up a lot but it is worth repeating. She does all of this online work from a dial-up connection. That is dedication. If you don't read her blog yet, you should add it to your list. It is really good. Plain and simple. Here are a few gems as of late:
If you are interested in flowers, color, design, nature, New England, sheep farming, kittens, dogs, cooking, family life on a farm, patterns, books, crafts, recipes, funny stories, etc. visit this blog. Kristin is a treat. There, I said it again. (psssst, she is having a few big daily giveaways going on right now.)

That's all for this morning. I have lots of knitting to get done today plus it's really sunny and warm outside. I want to get out there and enjoy this weather before it is gone again.
best, susie
p.s. I am mailing out the Blue Sky yarn and my knit birdy today.
