Last week…

Last week was an exciting one. I had the giveaway going which was lots of fun. I hope to be able to do that again soon. I got word back from two submissions that I had sent in and the word back on both of them was positive. I can say that only one of them is a baby design. The other is an adult accessories design. I can’t wait until I can share more information with you! I can say that it will indeed be exciting.

I have many works in progress going as far as free time knitting goes. I am very close to being done with my Macro Lace Cardigan. I just can’t get into knitting it right now because I am on the ribbed edge and it’s sort of like a big blanket right now and well, it’s just too warm for that! I started a shawl last week, the Spring is in the Air shawl by Kristi Holaas. It’s lovely and I was nearing an end when I forgot some yarnovers and surely dropped some stitches. So, I had to rip back some rows. I need to go get some different dental floss so I can run a lifeline before I will continue. Last night, I cast on my mom’s Slinky Ribs. She picked this out in April as her birthday sweater. But, I didn’t have time for it with my sweater and my 8 million other projects. But, I decided to make a go at that now. I don’t think it will take me too long really. I have another hat design that is nearing completion, but is in timeout for the time being. That doesn’t need to be done now as I am about to get very busy with design work anyways:)

I told myself a month ago that I was going to save up to buy lots of Malabrigo Rios when it’s released. I never realized how hard no buying yarn would be. I did manage to buy a few things. So, I can give you a peak here at some of my latest stashed lovlies:

Sorry it took me a little longer to figure out the winners. I had to take my daughter in to have a finger x-rayed. Her friend accidentally slammed her finger in a car door. As a knitter, that injury just gives me the shivers. Anyways!

First of all, thanks so much for all the lovely comments. I really do appreciate them all. Today’s winners are Stepanie and Sally. I will be contacting you both either via email or ravelry today! Thanks for playing. Keep stopping by as I really like doing giveaways and I have some exciting projects in the works.

Baby Ruched Giveaway!

Well last week, Baby Ruched was released. It seems to be doing quite well. I am so excited about how well it is doing that I have decided to do a little giveaway! All you have to do is comment on this post and later this week, I will pick a winner! Before I tell you what you will win, I want to show some lovely shots of this little cardigan.

So, now that I got that out of my system, I want to tell you what I am giving away. I will give away a copy of the pattern Baby Ruched Cardigan along with one skein of Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in Summer Blooms. One skein is enough to make up to an 18 month size(VERY close on a 2T size as well).

I LOVE this colorway! I will also give a secondary prize of a choice of one pattern from my for sale patterns on Ravelry. So, there will be two winners. Make sure when you post you give me some way of getting a hold of you either your Ravelry ID or an email. Good Luck. If you win the Baby Ruched pattern and you’ve already purchased it, I will give you the choice of another of my patterns and you will still get the yarn! So, there you have it. Just comment to win! ETA: I will keep this giveaway open until 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 14, 2010 at which time, I will do the drawing! Thanks!

Hello Hello!

Well, I have completed my New Year’s resolution. I knit a pair of socks and I loved every minute of it. Now, they aren’t perfect. I made a few mistakes, I fixed most of the them though. Just, note to self, no more toes when watching the Sopranos. It’s a bad idea. This was a pretty basic pattern. Even the toes were a piece of cake! I knit them up in Knit Picks Felici in the Green Veggies colorway. I will block them and have a picture for you next post. I literally just finished the toe.

I have a new pattern coming out very soon. It is for a girl this time. It is my very first girl cardigan pattern and I am just absolutely smitten with it. I used the same model that I used for the Maggie hat. She is just so adorable. I will give you a sneak peek here. I am hoping it will be up next week, I will surely let you know!
