September has arrived, and with it all sorts of fun and fruitful events… events which, however, have minimized my online activities a little. Finally I’ve got a bit of a break, so I figure I’ll give everyone a holler and an update.
First things first: Batt Club! Later today, everyone on the waiting list will be receiving new emails with their position in line, notifications have gone out to those who’ve gotten in, and the September club shipment is slated for Monday or Tuesday.
So what’s been keeping me so busy? Well, I’ve got a few writing deadlines, some pre-ordered custom production that’s had to happen, a new school year for the manchild, and I’m finally — yes, finally — approaching the completion of that exciting dental implant saga. And, okay, I actually took Labor Day weekend off.
The Foggy, Foggy Dew shawl is, finally, nearing completion; so’s the Pagoda shawl. It has been miserably hot again, after a 3-day break in the weather — the hottest August and start of September on record. So I can’t say there’s been a ton of knitting going on, particularly on shawls that are nearing completion and thus cover a large amount of lap real estate. And it’s hardly rained at all in the past 2 months; everybody’s yard is dying, trees are in trouble, oof, it’s unpleasant.
Stay tuned! Next week brings the meaty updates you’ve been wishing for. Really! This past week has been the first real work week of the new school year season for me, and boy has it been a doozy, as they say.
