To the Summit?



Mama Llama got accepted as a vendor for the 2009 Sock Summit! Now that the excitement has worn off a little reality has set in. Can Mama Llama really afford the stock/travel/set up/food for this trip in Aug.? I keep running the numbers I sure think it is worth a try.

I have more good news to throw your way.... Carmen is moving back from Brasil in July! Since Brandon will be beginning kindergarten after this summer I plan on making Mama Llama more of a full time job, Carmen is anxious to get her hands dirty in the marketing portion of the business. It is no secret that I am my own worse enemy when it comes to salesmanship, so it will be nice to have someone else besides Chris to shove me once in awhile!

I have posted some yummy yarn and stitch markers on Etsy if you want to check them out.

No knitting news to report. I have been busy with work and I am pretty sure I will be swamped for another month or two.

Color Co-op colorway for March



New Mama Llama Colorway, Granola Girl


Hope you check in once in awhile.... I'll be here posting new colorways and stitch marker creations..... :)

Flu? We don't need no stinkin' Flu!

The Presentation was fabulous and I will be posting the pictures on flickr this week. I got bogged down with a little stomach flu later in the week, so needles to say not a lot got done. It is kind of strange that no one else in the family came down with it (knock on wood), maybe it was something I ate?

I was really excited to get My first Woolgirl Sock Club package a few weeks ago. This first installment of the club featured some wonderful things.... And that stitch marker! WOW was it perfect or what? cough,cough... yes okay it was a Mama Llama stitch marker ;) If this is just a taste of what Woolgirl has in store for us this year, what a wonderful year it will be... Oh and I can't wait for the firsr "Embrace the Lace" Club package to arrive this month..... DROOL!

I am 15 inches into Carmen's sweater and I have a brilliant idea! Its time to start two sleeves to add to the yoke and I'm thinking I might make the top portion "Tempting". You know that pattern, doesn't everyone? She absolutely has the stomach, neckline and boobies to get away with the look, so I think I'll take the chance and go for it. Of course I'll have to make major modifications.

I'll have progress pictures later this week. I'm a little bogged down with work and spring break kiddy entertainment responsiblities but I am sure I'll be motivated enough to knit ;)

have a great week y'all!
