There has been a shameful lapse in blogging here at Fyberduck HQ/ Rose City Knits, something I plan to remedy right now :)
For starters, remember the super-secret project I’ve mentioned a few times? Well, it is finished and the patterns are hot off the press and ready to be shipped out. If you’d like to get a sneak peek of the super-secret project (and you’re in the area), drop by Abstract Fiber’s booth at the Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival. It’ll be there, though I will not :$
I would say “alas”, but it is hard to be mournful when I think about how I’ll be seeing my niece and nephew again for my nephew’s BAR MITZVAH. Can you believe it? D turned 13 in March and will be reading the Torah on Saturday. I’m not sure how or when he got so big, but it seems very sudden (he’s almost my height now!).
So, we fly down to the Bay Area tomorrow and will spend the weekend with family. Not exactly something I’d complain about! Though I will miss the Festival, which is a bummer…
Especially since I now have a loft for the stash! Yes, a loft! In my new studio! (Yep, studio.)
While it’s not finished (see below), it was built/ installed on Tuesday and has already been used for a mini photoshoot for the super-secret pattern:
The studio is 14′ x 14′, which should make it quite large enough for my many tools, gizmos, and anything else design/ work related:
Particularly because of the loft (which measures 6′ x 14′) that is speficically intended for the stash…
Which even I can’t fill up that fast.
Or so goes the theory.
Anyway. We have big plans which involve cool flooring (I’m thinking Pergo) and of course insulation, plus Dad suggested a rolling ladder for the loft, which would just be AWEsome. I covet. My books and bookcases (plus comfy reading chairs) will go under the loft, while the sunlight main area will have all my design and creative tools and supplies. I may even have room for a loom again. That would be amazing, since I really miss weaving.
So, much has been happening here, obviously. I’d love to type more, but I really need to go pack, since we’re leaving at 7 am. Ugh. I’m dreading facing the TSA so early in the morning. That should be just super-duper fun. Maybe I can sleepwalk through it…
I’ll try and post some more updates this weekend – including some other very exciting news – but make no promises. Photos of the super secret project will definitely be going up on Monday, though, so keep an eye for that! Until then, wish me luck, I’m gonna need it :)
