I hope you all had a lovely holiday season, and are starting 2018 with renewed energy! I sure am!
I’ve had a lot going on recently – lots of deadline knitting that was all-encompassing for a few weeks there (right in the middle of holiday stuff going on too!) But I’ve finished all that up and can concentrate on some other things for a bit before the next designing deadline hits! 🙂 (A note on what was keeping me so busy – be on the lookout for 2 articles and 3 accompanying patterns of mine in the next issue of Cast On magazine! I especially can’t wait for you to see the sweet baby dress I designed!)
I finished up a little project/pattern I was working on, and just published it. It’s a Cabled Ear Warmer, using just one skein of sport-weight luxury yarn, and an optional 2″ pom-pom if you wish. This ear warmer is perfect for when you wear your hair up, but still need to keep your ears warm (hair buns do not fit in some hats well!) With the recent cold snap we had, I really needed this! It knits up really quickly, so you can whip one up in time to use it the rest of this winter.
I’m participating in the Cheers To Ewe ADVENTurous wrap knit along as well, and haven’t had much time to work on it, but I’ve added a few rows to it here and there.
I’ll be teaching in Charlotte on the 20th at the Charlotte Knitting Guild January Workshop! Registration info is located here. I’ll be teaching Estonian Stitches and All About Socks. Lunch is included. It is sure to be a fun day, so if you live in the Charlotte, NC area you should come join us (and me!)
Then later in March (on the 17th) I’ll be teaching two classes at Cheers To Ewe, Fix It and Mosaic Knitting. The Fix It class is a great class to take if you want to learn to fix your knitting mistakes and gain confidence as a knitter. And mosaic knitting is a fun technique! You can find out more info by going to the Cheers To Ewe website here.
That’s it from me for today, I’m planning to post a bit more regularly this year (we’ll see if I can stick to that resolution!)
Happy Knitting! Here’s to a great 2018!
