Designing, Patterns Released, WiP Posts

WiP Wednesday 11/21/18, G.A.L., and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi!
I have a couple of WiPs I’m working on – I’m working up a set of watch cap hats for a Brioche class I’m teaching in March. I have the adult and the infant done so far – I’ll cast on for the child size in the next day or two. I think I’ll add an adult large as well, although the adult size is nice and stretchy so I might not. We’ll see!

And I have a pair of socks on the needles as well, although these are slow going since they are my ‘waiting room’ and ‘need some knitting handy’ knitting. 🙂 I started these on dpns and just never switched them over to two circs. I don’t mind using dpns – although I do prefer two circulars for knitting socks. I used a german short row heel on these. I’m loving the yarn! (Twisted Owl 2-ply Sock.)

I’m also knitting up swatches for an article I’m writing for the next issue of Cast On magazine. There’s nothing exciting there yet. I’ll be writing two patterns to go along with that article as well.

Speaking of Cast On, did you see the most recent issue? My cabled sweater was published in it! ‘Harmonious Echo Pullover‘.
I’m super happy with how it turned out. I got the sample back a week or two ago and I’ve already worn it twice. 🙂 This was worked in super yummy Miss Babs Yowza in the color Sycamore. I hope you enjoy! It was a labor of love and I put a TON of work into it. 🙂

I recently self-published a few things that had rights reverting back to me: my Quatrefoil Shawl, my Zick Zack Fingerless mitts, and my Wheat Chain socks. I did that because something fun is coming up in a few days and I wanted a few more patterns available …. the Indie Design Gift-A-Long 2018!

This will be my 3rd year as a participating designer in the GAL fun! For the first 7 days there is a sale, but the real fun lasts for all 6 weeks with people knitting and crocheting gifts for prizes. There are all kinds of fun and games going on! You should check it out and join in the fun – I know I will!

That’s it from me for now – I’m finishing up my Thanksgiving cooking (we’re having our big dinner tonight) and I’m ready to eat and watch some holiday movies with my clan. I hope you and yours have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
Until next time, Happy Knitting! (And don’t eat too much turkey!)
