Hi All. I'm not dead just working on things for my brand. I'm hoping I'm going to be able to release them on March 1st so stay tuned for that. In other news, I discovered Knitting on the Square on Friday and I'm so happy there is such a nice LYS not too far away but far enough I won't be spending every day there spending all my money! I'm planning on being at the Friday night knitting group with my shawl project for my mom in tow. I'm currently working on a shawl out of Knit Picks Felici Sport the colorway being Waterscape I believe. I'm using the pattern Citron from Knitty. The plan is to give it to her on Mother's Day. Last year I made her some soap that was good for her sensitive skin and crocheted her some roses. She was estatic so I hope this year has the same results.
I know it seems early but I need to think about what I'm making everyone for Christmas. I don't usually knit for my boyfriend and my stepdad. I usually give crocheting supplies to my mom. Last year I did ornaments for the cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents. This year I would love to do mittens and fingerless gloves and probably a few hats. I need to contact everyone so they can put their orders in. Does anyone else have crazy Christmas ambitions?
Knit Picks has one of my favorite yarns on sale, Felici Sport. I'm doing everything I can not to clear them out right now. I bought my first Noro purchase on Friday and I think I've found a patterns for it. 198 yds. of Heaven , which is a free download on Ravelry. I've also discovered the Knitmore Girls and what a pleasure they are to listen to. I downloaded all of their episodes and started at the beginning like I did with the Knit Picks podcast. I have to say I actually prefer the old set up for the Knit Picks podcast better than the new one. I miss listening to Kelley's knitting stories and getting weekly lessons from her about how awesome I Cords are and about steeking. She will always be one of my knitting heroes.
Well that's all for now! Take care and TTFN!
