I am now done with all of the knitting. All that is left is the sewing up.. sigh...

Never Not Knitting For Tiny Ones

My friend Leslie has one of the cutest granddaughters ever and the other day Leslie's daughter kindly let me borrow her for a photo shoot. I recently had a bunch of my spring/summer patterns knit up in a 6 month size for my second trunk show.
I'm so happy to have such an adorable model to show them off!

Meet Adelaide..

Isn't she sweet? As you can tell she started the photo shoot pretty happy. I think she liked wearing Chloe and the sweater looked adorable on her! This sample was knit up out of Spud and Chloe Sweater yarn in
one skein each of the Watermelon, Popsicle and Rootbeer colorways.
This has been a very popular pattern this summer!

Next up.. Haltermelon!

I think that this little halter top looks especially adorable in the smaller sizes!

Adelaide at first seemed very happy to put this outfit on. It was nice and comfortably cool on a very warm day.
But as you can tell, she quickly became a bit concerned...

Perhaps she doesn't care for watermelons after all?

Hmm... doesnt look like it.. When we put the Watermelon sweater on her, we had a little "Watermelon Overload" incident on our hands.

"Watermelons all over me! Ahhh!"

Once the Watermelon situation was dealt with, Adelaide was very happy to model the
Spring Garden Tee for me. I found this beautiful soft blue (Rowan Calmer color #463) to be a wonderful color for her.

On my blog I recently shared pictures of this tee on an older girl, but its fun to see how it looks on a baby as well.
It really is a versatile pattern!

Thank you again to Adelaide and her Mom and Grandma for making this photo shoot possible.
And don't worry Adelaide.. Ill keep that Watermelon sweater far far away.. It will never bother you again.

Thank you also to my fabulous sample knitters CeRae and Yaena.
The garments turned out beautifully!

If your local yarn shop is on my trunk show schedule, you'll get to see these beautiful samples in person.
Have your yarn shop owner contact me to be added to the list! nevernotknitting@gmail.com



Recently I made this lovely hat for a knitting friend diagnosed with cancer.
I'm very happy with how it turned out and I hope that she likes it too.

This is the Frukktradgard hat pattern. Yes. I said Frukktradgard. :)
Isn't it beautiful? All of those lacy leaves. I love it!

I knitted this out of the yarn called for in the pattern, only one skein of Road to China Light from The Fibre Company. What lovely yarn this is. I highly recommend it!
Check out my latest podcast episode for a review.

You will find the Frukktradgard pattern available here.
The yarn is available here through the The Backwards Loop.

I'm getting ready to start a second Frukktradgard for another friend
of mine out of the Aquamarine colorway of Road to China.
I'll be sharing pictures of that one soon!

Yet Another Podcast Announcement

Hi Everyone! Unfortunately the Never Not Knitting podcast is experiencing some technical difficulties. I lost my finished podcast file and have to start over. :(

It will be out tomorrow! Sorry!


Can You Guess?

Can anyone guess which knitting pattern I just started for my daughter?
(Hint: Its ferocious.)



Healing And Knitting

Recently I've been going through a medical situation that has proved very taxing physically as well as emotionally. I am feeling much better now though. Thank you everyone for all of your kind notes and well wishes.

During this time I have found great comfort in my knitting. It has been such a nice distraction to focus on and relax with. I've picked up my Snicket socks again and am working on sock #2. I've also started a beautiful new lacy leaf project in an unbelievable yarn that I will be reviewing in the next podcast episode.

I'm sure you've noticed that both my current projects are green. Indulging in my favorite color makes me very happy. :)
