T-3 days and camera mom and I will head up to our new home in Maine, where camera dad awaits our arrival! Squee with me!!! And prayers are very much appreciated to.

The next release in the Technicolor: Matinee eBook collection is Silvia Needs a Bag by pattern engineer, Christine Guest.  Christine’s designs fascinate me!  She incorporates such incredible detail scientifically proven to work together in beautiful artistry.  I’ve had a few peeks into her process and her pile of swatches to get everything perfect is mesmerizing!  I’m also privileged to be test knitting an upcoming release of hers, a men’s sweater, and am loving her attention to detail.  The care she takes to make sure patterning develops in a beautiful method even when doing something like increasing for a sleeve – wow!  But you’ll hear more on that a little bit later.  For now, Christine was kind enough to let me …
