Still Knitting...


Life has recently thrown us some unexpected surprises as sometimes life does. One change that has caused some stress recently is our moving houses, and figuring out exactly where all of that yarn of mine is going to fit. :)


But I'm still here working and knitting.

Here is my latest design project.. almost done! Well.. On my end anyways...
there is still the business of test knitting, tech editing, and pattern layout.
It takes a team to get a pattern published!

This is my first adult garment and I'm awfully excited about it!
Expect to see it around the first of June.

Also.. check out this wonderfully cheery new yarn I got in the mail yesterday..

There's nothing like brightly colored yarn to cheer a person up, right?
I have a little design project in mind for this one as well and I can't wait to get going on it.

This yarn is part of an exciting new line that I know a lot of knitters have been talking about.
I'll be sharing a review of it in my next podcast episode!

Best of luck getting settled in to your new home! The moving process itself is the worst... I'm in the midst of packing boxes for our upcoming move, too.

Can't wait to see the new pattern! I hope it's a grown-up version of that sweet little tee from last year. ;-)

Good luck with moving!! I can't wait to see your first adult design (or rather I can't wait to knit it up for myself ;0)

I hope you will love your new home. Moving isn't fun, though. Sorry! I love your new adult whatever! I also love the beautiful coral(?) yarn. I will eagerly await to see what you have in mind for that.

Your photography is so great! The shot of your new project is a wondeful illustration of the design process. Love the pen and tea!

You are quite the tease, just pooling that knitted garment like that......hummmmm looks like something my daughter would like to wear, when she still lived at home all of her clothes were are the floor in a similar pile!

Enjoyed the Knitting Iceland interview. A friend went to Iceland a year ago and brought back 6 wheels of Icelandic wool for me -- I've begun the old shale stole in Folk Shawls, but haven't gotten very far. It's very interesting yarn! I'm using a dark denimlike blue. I'd love to see the Oh so blue colorway in real life!
