littles on ravelry

Linear and Montoya are finally on ravelry, along with their kiddie counterparts, Little Linear and Little Montoya. If you don't have the patterns already, you can download them now from the comfort of your pajamas! If you've started making them, or finished already, please post your project!

I finished all of my Christmas knitting and will post some of it soon. And, as promised, I began knitting the Glows gloves just for myself. Happy New Year everyone!

to me from me

Sometimes, having a lot of projects that NEED to be knitted can be a drag. The lineup means you're not entitled to the thrill of a new project. Every year about this time, I set aside my current WIP's to charge into gift knitting, powering though to the Christmas deadline. I know exactly what awaits me in my knitting bag for the next 2 months. I'll be looking forward to my holiday of handknits, but it's nice to have a little incentive to make me finish those gifts on time - a light at the end of the tunnel.

So here it is - the project that I get to make for myself as soon as the list is complete!

Glows by Julia Mueller ,
knit with Dream in Color Everlasting Sock
(it's arriving at Knots sometime in the next week!)

To match my new coat, of course!

Yep, it's pink

Happy birthday to me, courtesy of Cleveland Craigslist. Salmon pink vinyl and formica are totally kid-friendly and play-doh ready. Just bring on the fingerpaints!

Zoe knitalong

We are starting our first knitalong at the shop this Friday, and I am so looking forward to knitting something from someone else's pattern! I have been working nonstop this season on new patterns for Kate Jackson Knits, as our Fall trade show is coming up in a just a few weeks, and I miss knitting without a calculator! I chose the Zoe tee or cardigan patterns from C2Knits, a local designer, for the knitalong. They are both well suited to our new Cascade Sierra yarn, a soft worsted weight blend of 80% cotton and 20% wool. Now which color should I choose?

fresh start?

Yes, I have poorly neglected the blog for awhile. I guess that is what two kids can do to you! I have been working on new designs lately, and I plan on sharing some recent projects soon. There are also some great new yarns in the shop, and exciting happenings there too! I'll try again to keep you posted about "my life in yarn"!
