knit, Swirl!

Just as I was going to bed last night an email came through from Direct Air. Their 50% off seat sale was extended until Friday. I guess I should have read the email I got from them last week to know that there was a seat sale. I sent a text to Beth (she was just going into a theatre to see a movie) to ask if I should make a reservation. We are going to Myrtle Beach at the beginning of July for just over a week. The last minute things will be done-TV, phone and internet. I think those could be the most important things. Luckily the installer can come on our first day there. Sorry, back to the point.

Direct Air flies out of Niagara Falls, NY to some great destinations. If you are thinking of taking a trip take a look at their website. Promo Code is MAYFARE.

I heard about a new book today and got it ordered as quickly as I could. We should have it in stock in about two weeks.  knit, Swirl!
Within the lavishly photographed pages of knit, Swirl!, designer Sandra McIver presents 18 designs that flatter all figures, each based on the innovative one piece, one seam circular construction she calls a “Swirl”.  Using simple knitting techniques, she creates elegant sweater jackets in four dramatic silhouettes and three flexible sizes.  Swirls are fun to style and may be worn in a variety of ways—some even upside down!  Clear step-by-step pattern instructions and detailed schematics make knitting a Swirl a simple pleasure.
Read more about how the jackets are constructed.  I can't wait to see the book!!

The cover jacket is knit in Mountain Goat (A smooth non-fluffy mohair/wool blend that is excellent for doing colorwork and stitch patterns) from Mountain Colors and we have kits on the way.  There are 10 skeins (9 colours) with three colourways available-pinks and purples (shown), blues and teals and warm autumn shades.

It's time to run and get dinner so that I can be back in time for knitting class. I wonder if there will be any knitting tonight.
