A Little Slice Of Heaven

During the course of the last week I was away with other amazing knitwear designers to contemplate our ideas on writing books. San Juan Island is the most deliciously quiet place. It rained a bit, the sun came out a bit, but mostly the pace was slow and the ideas plenty.




Our location had no cell phone service, so the only connection with the outside world was about once a day by Internet. Seriously, what could be better?


This week I also found a very interesting small format book/magazine called Craft: Transforming Traditional Crafts. It is really cool. The focus seems to be a twisted contemporary "take" on traditional crafts. Check it out at http://www.craftzine.com/m/.



The Oregonian knitting blog did a little interview with me, take a look at http://blog.oregonlive.com/knitting/. I'm usually pretty shy about including my photo, but they talked me into it!







Is it just me? Or is there a hint of spring in the air? In Portland, Oregon today we actually saw sun!



If you haven't checked in, http://www.tinkknit.com/ has been updated for Spring.


Wanna see the Zebra Bag?
To purchase the Zebra Bag, go to: http://www.tinkknit.com/Zebra_Bag.html

It's our newest bag (see our half page ad in Interweave Knits) Knitted felt meets gold leafed zebra stripes, accomplished with our exclusive stencil. It's super simple. The detail is in the finishing.
We've added tutorials on http://www.youtube.com/ (search Marta McCall) and you'll find three new videos to support this bag.

Many thanks to the brilliantly talented Robert Loran of Portland, Oregon for his incredible photography. http://robertloranphotography.com/
