Briggs & Little Woolen Mills, Harvey NB

A visit to Briggs & Little in Harvey NB, Spinrite Outlet in Listowel ON, lots of swatching, another submission to Twist Collective ……  that’s been the last 2 months….. my stash has increased!

It’s been very hot and wool on the needles for a big project just didn’t seem like a good idea anyway. As a result I have tens of swatches, some washed, some waiting and a notebook bursting with ideas — pattern writing here we come!

Briggs & Little: a small but oh so well-stocked yarn room which also contains a bin of “seconds” – on my visit I managed to get some lovely Regal for $2 a skein. I have yet to rewind the skeins so I’m not sure yet what classifies them as seconds.

Excitement is building re: the pattern being published in the Fall 2010 issue of Twist Collective. I’ve just received my first Designer Revision copy to go over. They’ve done a super job of editing my at-times rambling wordiness into a concise pattern. Thanks!

On a ho-hum note, my submission for the Winter 2010 issue of TC was not accepted — did make the short list, so that made me feel good. However, receiving a rejection notice from the TC folks really doesn’t make you feel sad — they are sooooo nice.
