Good luck -- once you get settled in it will be such a fun experience for you and your kids! My family spent a year just outside London (I was 15, my brother was 8) and it was a totally transformative experience. Lots of fun things to see and do.

Yay Madrona! I had a blast and it was great catching up with you. Inspirational is right. I'm already knitting up the yarn I got!

Oh my goodness, she's getting so big!

I never ran into you, but I did see lots of Flints walking around this year! Congrats on being a luminary! :)

Oh my goodness, those shawl pins are lovely! I've been looking for a good shawl solution lately. I really like the magenta one in your picture, and the ones on her site with the circle with the bead in the middle...

I like the Slanting Rib Socks! I love socks and it sounds like this one has an interesting construction which I’d love to try (I’m trying to learn more about different sock constructions).

Jealoooooooous... +1 to what Dianne said about the Marine Silk & variegation.

Oh my god, the stress! :-P It looks beautiful. Maybe this will help me finish my sweater that's just been waiting on a zipper for over a year. 8-\
I was wondering whatever happened with this! Very cute!

Cape Disappointment... heheh. Their website fails to mention the most (potentially) interesting part of Cape Disappointment: how did it get its name?? I've got 37 states... and I don't think I really want to go to any of the other ones. :-P Except for Hawaii and Alaska. Can't believe you haven't been to Myrtle Beach, though! It's a classic. My states:

You did the right thing. What lovely pictures to remember her by! It looks like she definitely knew she was loved.

What lovely pictures and thoughts of her. Whatever you do, it will be the right decision--she knows you love her and are looking out for her best interests. Let me know if I can help with anything.

I seriously covet this pattern. I was dreaming about it even before I knew it existed! Congrats on the Loopy Ewe -- you are slowly building an empire. :)

Oooooh, pretty!!! I don't think I fully understood this item while it was in progress. The lace + the points are great!

I particularly like "Design Your Own Mitts", "Yarn Substitution" and "If Only It Was" with the caveat that it should actually be "If Only It Were" (since it's expressing a wish for a hypothetical state, the verb should be in the subjunctive). I'd also be interesting in something on finishing, particularly if it talked about finishing other than seaming, such as adding zippers or fabric linings. Maybe you could get Julie to do a guest talk on this; I've always admired the clever finishing on her projects. Maybe also one about garment care, especially for non-superwash yarns? I'm afraid to make garments in non-superwash yarn, especially for my husband who wears sweaters pretty hard, because I don't want to spend an hour handwashing every item every week; but I notice you knit mostly with non-superwash fibers and it would be cool if you could allay people's fears about making garments designed for everyday wear that aren't superwash, and maybe talk about which fibers are good for durability and generally how to care for handknit garments so that you get the most out of them.

I LOVE this color, it's so beautiful! The first time I saw it on your blog (after the dyeing) I was actually tempted to ask if you'd be willing to sell it. Nice job.

HazelKnits just came out with a lovely color called Jubilee. Please tell me it isn't named after your dog!! ;-)

I, too, LOVE the edging and the vents. "A Hint of Color"? "On the Edge"? "A Fine Outline"?

My arms are always cold and my core is always hot, so shawls seem like an excellent garment for such a predicament... however, I'm still looking for one that doesn't make me feel like an old lady wearing a shapeless sack. I wear them with sleeveless dresses (easy to carry in a bag and throw on when it gets cold) but I have yet to find one that makes me feel elegant...
