Missed the floods

Thanks to those who have expressed concern about the floods here. Fortunately, the flooding is all around me, every town around here seems to be under water, but luckily we had no water in our basement or damage to any property. Good thing, because all my knitting machines and most of the stash is in the basement!

If you would like to see photos of some of the flooding, here is a link to our local paper. Be sure to click "next" to see all the photos in the gallery. Our main post office for the area was closed.

Out here article

I went to TSC (Tractor Supply Company) tonight in search of canning jars (WHICH THEY DO NOT HAVE, BTW) and picked up a copy of their magazine "Out Here" and found an article about machine knitter Sharon Nani.

The article in the hard copy of the magazine is different than the one online. It tells more about how Sharon got started in machine knitting and what her business is like today, whereas the online article is Sharon's advice for others starting a cottage industry.

The magazine is free, stop by their store and pick one up!

Shame on me!

I have been neglecting my knitting, and my knitting blog. I guess I am waiting for Bonnie Triola's Inspiration 2007 to get inspired. See you there?

I'll also be at the Grand Rapids seminar in October.
