Friday Flashback and a Quick FO.

...five summers ago, Katie and I were headed to NYC to move her into her first post-college apartment. So many things about Sara's move are very different...but some are much the same.


and Sara.

I am very grateful that it seems both girls have inherited Marc's handyman skills. Goodness knows I have none to share!

And now for the FO part. This is my Linen Poncho. I've already written about it for the shop, but these two photos are new (it's nice having someone home who's comfortable using my camera!)

I am delighted with it. There is surely a third poncho in my knitting future for this fall/winter (assuming my love for stockinette continues!)

One more thing, did y'all know that I also write the newsletter for the shop? We recently moved to a new website that supports on-line shopping (yay!) and that means a new newsletter platform to learn. Yesterday's letter was my fourth and I can feel the learning curve starting to ease. It helps to have great projects and yarn to feature. If you'd like to share, I'd love to know what project/yarn you'd suggest for a future newsletter.

Happy Friday!

Oh my goodness your poncho is gorgeous! I just bought some linen to make the diagonal lace poncho on the Churchmouse website. Need to get moving on it before summer is over.

Handyman skills are very helpful, and kind of fun to learn (sometimes)! You look so fashionable in your linen poncho and it looks like perfect summer knitting in linen.

I really enjoyed your Summer Sundry newsletter (I had to subscribe!), especially the lovely color and yarn suggestions. I have some purple linen just waiting for a project, and I think this might be perfect. I would recommend featuring Shibui Staccato in a future newsletter. I love the yarn and knit this with it, but have also thought about Color Affection, Saroyan, or Scalene.

Your handyman skills are put to better use with knitting. The poncho looks like the perfect cover for cool breezes and too cold air conditioning. A big plus is how fashionable it looks, very elegant (like you!).

Luv! Luv! the poncho! Such an inspiration for me to finish (er,uh, start?) mine!
Looks like Sara's making great progress with her impending move - a week or so from now, right?

I have no handyman skills either, but wish I did. Am looking forward to putting the poncho on the needles sometimes soon, and I've enjoyed the newsletter. The recent highlight on sundry was really good.

Love the photos of the girls! So fun to see them both progress through their lives -- with independence AND handy-skills! As for the poncho. . . LOVE it! I'm nearing the end of my second (this one in hemp). They are so awesome -- I'll probably have at least one more in my future, too.
