Yes, so I realize that I’ve been mentioning this from time to time for several months now, but never formally introduced the big news!
ETA: Actually, I just read back through my posts and it looks like I never really did mention this, even though it’s been consuming my life.

I will be studying abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina from the end of February through the end of July. It’s an interruption from my regular course of study, but I’m going to take the opportunity to complete some credits towards a Spanish minor, as all of my courses will be taught in Spanish while I’m there. This is a wonderful (albeit terrifying) opportunity for me and I have to admit I’m freaked out. This is definitely bigger than anything I have ever done in my life!

Because I’m going to be away during the festival season, I am having a sale right now in order to give people a chance to do any shopping they might have wanted to do over the summer. From now until February 15th I will take 20% off of any order of two items or more, and shipping is free for all purchases! 11:59 on February 15th I will close my shop in order to prepare for my departure on 2/20.

This is a sneak peak, before I completely finish my uploads, and send out an e-mail to my mailing list, so if you see something you like you may want to snap it up now, because I won’t be making more until next fall, and when I run out I run out!

Right, so this is old news but my BFF Amanda took all the photos this summer of all the events we did, and due to hurricanes and mad amounts of work in her new home in NOLA she’s not been able to share them with me, until now! So instead of writing about what I’ve been up to lately I thought I’d finally share with you some of what I did this summer, in storyboard format!

GRASSROOTS Festival of Music and Dance, Trumansburg, NY

Grassroots was a blast, late nights, great music, lots of support:

(you’ll be happy to know I still had to pay him!)

There were periodic rainstorms throughout the weekend, but thanks to my good friends Paul and Maria of Asia Luna I had an extra roof on my tent which meant we stayed dry:

These girls did not:

Coming home we found a giant turtle, and had to stop and take photos (obviously!):

FALCON RIDGE FOLK Festival of Music and Dance, Hillsdale, NY

Although Falcon Ridge began with much rain, the majority of the weekend was nice and sunny:

Until it wasn’t!
The sky was ominous! This is the last we saw before we zipped up and buckled down (and then it proceeded to pelt us with quarter-sized hail and huge gusts of wind):

We held on tight (this funny photo really doesn’t convey the violence of the wind, because we didn’t have time to take photos when we were all hanging on for dear life!):

And despite some serious flooding (and seriously white thighs, sorry):

We managed to to escape yet again without a leak from the top!:

Others were not so fortunate:

For some it was no matter. This is sort of how I was feeling, even though everyone expected me to be really upset:

It was an eventful summer,
and I have to thank Amanda again for taking so many photos, for all the hours spent working on tedious tasks (like tying bows and gluing boxes) and for always being there for me when I was stressing out, or when I was overjoyed.

Back on the web!

I can’t recall if I posted about this, but in late July I got my website all finished up! Check it out: Soasa Designs Of course I haven’t had time for the most important step, the actual listing of pieces. This collection that I’m presenting is one that I am fond of, a melding of old favorites and new loves. The challenge of selling both on and offline is a big one, especially with the volume of events I have coming up in the next few months, but I am confidant in what I have to offer to the internet.

I think that’d be me. Sorry.

I know I should have blogged about the fantastic trip I had up to Ithaca with my booth. I know I should have fabulous photos to prove that Grassroots was a fabulous festival! I know I should have blogged about the huge, terrifying storm that hit Falcon Ridge early Sunday afternoon, effectively shutting down the festival. I don’t have photos of that either, so check out that link to see a video, check out this one to see another, and someday I’ll wrangle some photos away from My dear friend and savior Amanda when I’m sure she’s more settled in her new home! She’s got photos of my pasty white legs standing in a river of muddy water running higher than my ankles through my booth. It took four of us hanging on the EZ-Up to keep it from lifting off, but I am very proud to say that my meticulous weather disaster plan was 100% effective! Nary an earring was lost, and the paper goods all survived as well!

My lack of blogging energy hasn’t been helped by the fact that until this week I hadn’t read an entire book all month (the horror!) and I’ve been on strict knitting probation thanks to my lovely OT who’s trying to fix up my elbow. In other news, I’ve started hula hooping pretty much obsessively, and I’m cleaning and sorting and packing in preparation to head back to school next week! I can’t believe my break is so close to ending.

Boo.

All the pain, that is. Aren’t I a bit too young for all these joint problems? It seems that my non-stop abuse of my hands has caught up to me, and at knitting club last night (having cut flowers at work for 5 hours that morning)I found my arm tingling. I took of my elbow brace, rubbed my arm a bit, and tried not to cry with the pain. In the car on the way home my hand started to go numb. This is really not good!

I rushed to my Dr. and got a referral to see the OT that my mom works with, but of course she left on vacation today and I won’t be able to see her for nearly two weeks. In the meantime I’ve got two 4 day festivals back to back, and a ton of work to get done! Not to mention a website to update, and a nearly finished sweater, half finished socks, and a quarter finished baby blanket on the needles!

I suppose I’ll be reading more? I can’t spend much time on the computer because that also aggravates the problem. I’ve been icing it, and trying to use my left hand more, and I’m going to try and learn to knit continental in hopes of spreading out the work from my right hand to my left. If anyone has any advice, I’d love to hear it! I’m a teensy bit panicky.
