It's in the bag

I recently found out that my home town of Snohomish, WA has a guild- the Snohomish Knitters Guild. And on August 5, they're attending a Stitch 'n Pitch night with the Seattle Mariners.

And in order to Represent, SKG had some knitting bags made.

One of which is now mine, all mine. It's a great bag- with pockets and snaps, and I love the adjustable shoulder strap. I envision using it for many things, not just knitting. I may... just maybe...if I am lucky, though I won't know for sure until probably the last minute... be able to drop in for a minute, on the next SKG meeting (July 13). And since Snohomish is a loooong way from South Dakota, that's a big hint about what's happening this week.

So things are a bit busy at my house, what with the cleaning and the packing and the list making (top of the list: do not miss the plane). But of course, I have taken time out to play some more with Adobe Illustrator.

Here are some vector knitting motifs, including 2 original art-brush borders that I designed (which ate up many hours, lemee tellya), that I plan to use for some yarny-type fabric that I want to design through Spoonflower. I see some knitting needle cases and bags in the future (though not the very near future because Spoonflower is quite popular, and growing moreso, and order delivery is a bit slower than expected... and because of that aforementioned flight thingy, which is coming up soon).

However, three of my earlier Spoonflower fabric orders should arrive tomorrow, which will be lovely. In fact, they'd be here today, if there was mail delivery (darn holiday anyway), so I can post pics (fingers crossed) before we leave very early on Wednesday.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you will be able to make the SKG meeting. I'm not able to attend the stitch n pitch but just had to buy the bag as well.

Safe traveling.
