Two Exciting Upcoming QueerJoe Events!

When there is a QueerJoe event on the horizon, it’s always an exciting time.  When there are two QueerJoe events, the anticipation builds even more.

1st of 2 QueerJoe Events – Final Holiday Craft Show and Retreat Registration

This coming weekend will be my last holiday craft show for 2019. It’s a really good event. And not just because I vend there.  First of all, the venue is impressive.  The Prallsville Mill complex is on that Delaware River and the Canal.

The actual show is in the old grist mill section of the complex.

They have horse and carriage rides available and decorations that feel real Christmassy.  Plus the vendors are superb. There are lots of opportunities to find unique and beautiful holiday gifts for your friends, family and loved ones.

Hopefully, you can join the festivities!

Current Knitting

I am thrilled to have finished one of my favorite projects lately…the Chantal Silk Old Shale Wrap!

Chantal Silk Old Shale Wrap 11-29-19 03

The colors are not my typical palette. But they are rich and vibrant and  very interesting.  The stitch pattern worked perfectly for this yarn.  The resulting wrap is very lightweight, soft and warm.  I couldn’t have hoped for better.

I also started a new project.

Chevron Scarf 12-02-19 01

This will be a Chevron Striped Scarf done in three different colors of a discontinued Trendsetter yarn called Belgrade. Again, not my typical color palette, and I’m not sure I’ll like it, but we’ll see!
