Just think of all those women on the Titanic who said,
“No, thank you,” to dessert that night. And for what!

[Erma Bombeck]

lighthousePass the dessert folks, I’m still celebrating. The special introductory offer is up on my web site for ordering the CD version of . . .and a time to knit stockings. I’m already receiving orders. I’m so excited.

I sent the papers to the state to make A Time to Knit Publications into a LLC. At 63, I’m finally turning this into a business. I’m so excited.

Yesterday, I received an order from Susan at Tongue River Farm for more copies of my other sock book, The Tongue River Farm Sock Collection. She told me that her icelandic wool that she kits with my little book of six sock patterns was mentioned by the Yarn Harlot on her blog. Since then she’d sold out. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (Yarn Harlot) is Canada’s answer to a knitting Erma Bombeck. So funny. We all need folks like her for our mental health. As for me, her post on her blog was like being on Oprah’s book club list. I’m so excited.

Much encouraged, I’m forging ahead. I have more than a dozen sweaters, vests and accessories designed in texture knitting. I’ve started layouts for those patterns under the name, Great Lakes Chill Chaser Collection. That doesn’t exactly roll off of the tongue, does it? The photo of the Grosse Ile, Michigan lighthouse is the hallmark for that collection. One of my clients, Janet Newell, took that lovely photo. I’m so excited.
