Some of you may know that the Malabrigo Junkies group here on Ravelry, runs a KAL every October called October Stockpile. This is a huge event and every year I usually do a coinciding sale for all things Malabrigo. So….
First off, they are spotlighting “Quickie” patterns. Quickie patterns are patterns put out by independent designers in conjunction with Malabrigo ya]rns. They are patterns that specialize in using between 1 or 2 skeins of yarn. My “Quickie” pattern is called The Roseway. It’s a garter stitch shawl, knit on the bias with a scalloped edge and eyelet detail. It’s quite simple, but goes very quickly! Perfect for a quick knit. It will be on sale for 40% with the code Quickie at checkout.
Also on sale, will be all of my other patterns using Malabrigo as a main yarn. These will be 25% off with the code Stockpile14.
Some of these patterns include:
Hyde Park Cardigan
The Vintage ice cream Truck Ebook ( these patterns can also be purchased separately)
The Phoebe Hat
Twin Leaves or the Ebook
Please continue to stop by the Ravelry group. I have some fun things planned coming up! Including free pattern giveaways and kit giveaways. I also have some new patterns coming out in the next few weeks.
It may just be me, but it seems like this summer has been warmer than usual. I am not a big summer person anyways, so I tend to focus on the “hot”. I have been needing to do a photoshoot for my next design for, oh…the last 3 weeks or so. However, I haven’t been able to find a “reasonable” day to put a toddler in a wool jumper and take pictures.
Now, I could set up indoors to do it. But, the sweater is animal themed, so I think the outdoors may be necessary. Here, I’ll show you:
Yes, it’s screaming woodsy! It’s knit in fingering weight (Sunshine Classic Sock, YUM!). Now, I know…You say, “you live in North Dakota, isn’t it cold year round there?” Believe it or not, people have said that to me before. Nope, it’s not cool year round. Today is projected to be around 90 and tomorrow 95. I keep saying, “maybe next week will be better.” I can only chuckle because so far, that has not worked out for me. I am definitely a “fall” kind of person. I’m not a fan of extremes whether they be too hot or too cold. I say to myself again, “maybe next week.”
Be sure to keep stopping by. Aside from my Malabrigo collection, I mostly took the summer off. I am diving headfirst back into things. I concentrate much better when the kids are in school. It’s almost not even comparable. I have a new women’s sweater design coming soon and some new accessories for the cold months that are inevitably coming!
