Knitting Along

I started another secret project for Black Pearl Yarns about 3 weeks back. Body is done and sleeves are done, just need to block and assemble! Yay!

Slip Stitch Jacket Start

In a moment of weakness, I started my Slip Stitch Jacket even though the secret project was not finished. It kept my hands from getting too tired by switching between the two projects, so I guess that doesn't make it too bad! My goal is to finish before Rhinebeck, but we'll see how it goes.

Grannie #2 Buttons

I also need to finish up Grannie #2. The weather is almost right for this little number. Bought some pretty buttons today and just need to finish up the button placket and the neck trim. My goal is to finish by the end of the week.

Still need to take some professional pictures for my next pattern offering too. It's so hard to pin down some time on the weekend for this! I hope it cools down a little and doesn't rain this Saturday!

Park(ing) Day


In the spirit of Knitters Against Global Warming, here's an interesting thing I heard about today:

Tomorrow, September 21st, is Park(ing) Day, a day to call attention to the lack of green space in our cities. There are about 20 spaces to be set up in NYC, but there are others around the nation too if you don't happen to live in the Big Apple. If you happen to be nearby one of them, go take a stroll!

Expectant Little Knits

The 2 designs I did for the maternity book will be out soon, January 08! They have the pre-order page up on Amazon - although I have to admit I'm not sure how long it's been up for. Sadly they don't have a preview page of any sort, so don't expect anything super exciting.

I'm just impatient to see how it turned out! Waiting is so hard!

Secret Knitting Wall

Being a designer is fun. You get to play with a bunch of different yarns and create something that is (hopefully) new and exciting to other knitters. As I knit along on my projects, my sketches come to life and become something wearable. But what is even more fascinating is watching others follow my sweater map and create something of their own.

One Planet has created a KAL especially for projects that originate from their site. Not only for patterns, but for yarns too. It's a place where I can help anyone working on my patterns, watch the progress and see the finished results. It's just beginning, but one knitter is already working on my Sunshine Tank and I'm so excited!

Being a designer has it's downfalls too, like deadline knitting that keeps the personal projects away. One Planet just released 2 more patterns recently and I am dying to make Analise. I have my Camouflage Lanas all ready, but sadly no time to start. Off to the Ravelry queue you go Analise!
