Hi all! I just finished up my fingerless mitts that will be in the next Cast On (sorry, can’t show them to you yet) – so now I can pull back out my sweater and finish it up! It’s not any farther along than it was the last time I talked about it, so no photos of it either. But hopefully it’ll be done in just a few days, so I’ll show you the finished sweater next week! Then I need to find the next thing I want to work on…. decisions, decisions.
Oh, and in case you didn’t notice, TKGA just came out with a Tech Editing certification course – so naturally I signed up for that! I’ve finished up Lesson 1, just waiting to hear if I passed. There are three lessons/levels (much like the MK certification). I’d really like to add tech editing to my wheelhouse, so this was perfect – and I’ve learned quite a bit already!
In publishing news – the next Knit Picks collection that I have a pattern in has been released! Luxurious Lace is a collection of 14 gorgeous shawls. (I haven’t gotten my comp copy of the book yet, but from the photos it looks like a lovely book!)
My ‘Feronia Shawl‘ is in the collection, and I am super pleased with it – it was so much fun to design. (I love designing lace – I really need to design more shawls!!)
I hope you enjoy knitting as much as I did designing it! Here’s a photo of my personal sample (knit in a different color):
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
EDIT: Oooh, I just received my copies of the book, and I have an extra one – so I’m going to do a giveaway! To enter, comment on this post with what you enjoy most about lace. I will do a random number generator to pick one person to win the copy of ‘Luxurious Lace’!
I’ll take entries from now until midnight ET July 5th (so – for 2 weeks) and announce the winner on July 6th! Good luck!
(Rules, etc: Only one entry per person please. Valid only for continental US addresses!)
