It's been a busy few weeks for me, let me tell you, and I'm not even talking about the Sock Summit craziness. The September catalog is still in the printing & mailing process, while at the same time we're shooting the photos for the October catalog and planning projects for the Winter catalog. Whew! I wanted to take some brief time to show you a glimpse of one of our October photoshoots, and to introduce you to your new KP catalog manager/designer, Christina.

I got this candid photo of Christina during our location shoot at Hopworks Urban Brewery in SE Portland. Hopworks is Portland's first Eco-Brewpub, offering organic beer in an awesome sustainable building that is a darn cool setting for photos. (Not only that, but they have amazing homemade rootbeer, which I sampled with lunch after the shoot.)

The whole setting was so inspiring--we could have shot all day here. Unfortunately, we only had 2.5 hours, as we had to squeeze the shoot in before they opened at 11am. Here's a photo of one of our new models watching another one get photographed in a gorgeous cabled capelet made from Gloss HW. (You'll have to wait until October to get a closer look, sorry!)

And here are our photographers Kerry & Sarah checking the photos of the capelet with Christina on the laptop:

Christina and I are so excited to be working together on the catalog. We have a lot of big plans and fun ideas, so stay tuned!

I ordered all three colors of the "Bubbles" sweater sets and have successfully completed two of them. What a pleasure it has been. Sorry I don't have have any more babies as yet to make the third set for. I'll wait and keep my fingers crossed for another stork to make it presence.
