Spring is in the air…

Hi everyone!

I’ve been working on a new spring knitting pattern using Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Robin’s Egg Blue. It’s such a beautiful colour and such a great name!

I don’t usually do lacey knits, but thought I would give it try.

Here’s a bit of a sneak peek. The front panels are almost done and I’ll be starting on the back this weekend.

Well off to keep working on this.

Have a great Saturday!

Happy knitting.

My second pattern re-do complete…

My Demi Gloves pattern re-do is now done.

The pattern will be staying the same so you can still purchase it, it just won’t have really nice photos. πŸ˜‰

I’m going through some of the first patterns I wrote to update the photos but also the pattern itself if needed. I want to make sure my instructions are clear.

I still have a few more patterns to re-do, but also new patterns to write up, so it’ll be a busy year for me.

I’m hoping to book a photo session late Spring so I can get everything updated and published by Fall. That’s the plan anyway.

Well, I have a lot of knitting to do and it won’t get done on it’s own, so off I go.

Have a great weekend and happy knitting.

Next pattern re-do

I’ve started working on my second pattern re-do. The Demi Gloves.

They are a double knit fingerless glove, knit flat and 2 at a time so both gloves are the exact same size.

The pattern is currently available, but I’m redoing it so I can take some nicer pictures. πŸ™‚ These gloves were one of the first patterns I wrote!

What are you working on this Sunday?

First one done…

My first pattern re-do is done!

Now to update the pattern then into the photo shoot pile it goes.

I hope to get a few more patterns redone over the Christmas holidays so I can book a photo shoot early in the New Year.

Here’s a peek at the updated “Hooded Scarf”.

Happy knitting!

Knitting for charity…

Yarn Canada is now taking applications for their 4th Annual event of giving yarn to individuals and groups who knit or crochet for good causes.

In partnership with Bernat and Patons Yarn, they’re giving away $4000 worth of yarn to 12 different charitable individuals/groups.

They’re hoping to get as many applicants as possible to ensure the yarn goes to wherever it can do the most good, so click the link below to fill in an application.

GOOD LUCK everyone!

I’m finally done…

Hey everyone!

I’m finally done my Ruana and I’m in love! ❀

It was a lot of work, but totally worth it.

The mornings are starting to get chilly so it will be perfect to just throw over anything and go. It will certainly keep me warm!

And our winters can be pretty mild, so I think I might be able to get a ton of use out of it.

I used about 2,400 yards of Stylecraft Special Aran in 6 different colours – about 12 balls in total – 2 of each colour.

Well, I just wanted to share this finished piece with you.

Now off to work on my other WIPs!

Have a great day everyone and happy knitting.

Meet Me For Coffee…

Hey everyone!

I’m so excited to share my newest pattern with you…

“Meet Me For Coffee”!

This fun, oversized sweater is PERFECT to throw on for a casual coffee date or lunch with the girlfriends.

Since it’s made using only the garter stitch, it’s an ideal project for the beginner knitter.

It’s also very versatile and can be worn with the seam exposed or hidden, with a shawl collar or flat.
