Mermaid Knits Registered!
First the really BIG NEWS. I have registered a company in the name of Mermaid Knits. Is this my second career? We shall see how it goes. With more and more invitations to teach knitting and other fibre arts, I decided to formalize the work aspect. I've learned about the requirements for claiming US income on my Canadian tax form. I am about to learn about developing a web site. It's all very exciting for me. Wish me luck!
Currently I am knitting a second piece of the same width, using the same stitch pattern and the Z twist yarn. It is skewing to the right! I have a bit more of the Z twist than I had of the S. Therefore I have the option of making the second piece longer. Or maybe I will knit a third piece with the excess??? The design process is still working in my brain. I am not sure if this will be a shawl or a ruana (using two pieces), or two shawls, or the idea I am favouring right now, a lap blanket. It is very warm! So check back in in October to see what I have decided.
Can you tell where I might be getting my colour inspiration? It's fall time, after all. The middle layer of rectangles is knit with y own handspun.
And here's another glimpse at the workshop note photos. At long last you may return to your regularly scheduled programming! Thanks for checking in.
