Accomplishments of the Week - July 8, 2018

Accomplishment #1

I moved house. On July 1st. In Montreal. In the middle of a heatwave. July 1st is the traditional moving day in Quebec which means that a ridiculous number of people are all trying to move house at the same time.

So far in my 10 years in Montreal I'd managed to avoid taking part in this tradition, but not this move. I've never before had to book a moving company four months in advance or move in at the same time as someone else is still moving out. At one point I think there were about 18 people in the apartment - absolute madness. But we survived, and although there's still quite a lot of unpacking to do, I'm quite enjoying exploring our new neighbourhood.

And I'm looking forward to having my loom in a nice sunny corner with all my houseplants!

Accomplishment #2

I finished my Pizzicato Pinstripe socks and Debbie and I did the photoshoot for the pattern today. The pattern is written and ready to go, so we just need to do the last layout edits and proofread and it will be ready to publish! And I have enough yarn left paired with some other leftovers to make my son a pair of socks, so he's very happy.

100 Days of Patterns
100 Days of Patterns

by Debbie Sullivan April 15, 2020

Since we’re still on a shipping hiatus for the time being, we thought it would be a good time to do a retrospective of our Sweet Paprika patterns. We’ve been publishing our own designs and those of other talented designers for over 13 years now, and have 99 patterns available here on our website and on Ravelry! We decided to call this project 100 Days of Patterns though, since we’re pretty sure we’ll have at least one new pattern released by the time we get through them all...
