Hi There

So, I've been a little preoccupied...

Z and L

(Z, who has grown a bit since her last appearance on the blog, and L, in his first appearance.)

But to highlight my return to knitting/blogging, for however long it lasts, I'm running a sale TODAY and today only on all my patterns. Use the code HITHERE at checkout to get 50% off your total purchase.

I know it's been awhile, so here for your perusal are all the patterns I currently have for sale.

Thanks for visiting!

Twist and Shout

If you haven't had a chance to check out the Winter 2011 Twist Collective yet, I have a pattern in it! And look! There are horses!

I'll talk more about it in my next post (I am knitting a pair all for my very own), but right now I just want to jump and point and giggle with glee. I hope you like it!

Little Knitter

Z Knits

Since I am feeling too blah to pose for pictures, here is my Z modeling my (finally!) completed Round the Corner Cardi. It's a modified version of Shiri Mor's Round the Corner Hoodie, and it is lovely and very cozy, and I will tell you all about it some other time.

Really I just wanted to point out that green yarn Z is holding. She picked it up, wound it around herself several times, and announced, "I'm knitting a sock for Mama."

Z Does Not Like Wearing This

Guys, I've been in a knitting funk.

The purple thing, which in my head was this awesome möbius-like vest for Z, turned into this:

Purple Thing

Or possibly this:

Purple Thing

Urgh. I don't know. It hasn't been frogged, because part of me (probably the same part that thought I could make a vest this way) thinks I can salvage it with a hood and some sleeves. Maybe this is my inexperience showing; no matter how I sketch and swatch, nothing turns out quite the way I imagined once it's knitted.

So, who else has a disaster story to share in the comments?

Something Purple

I haven't been talking much about the whole quest-to-be-published lately. As I've said before, it is largely a matter of waiting. I'm not complaining, mind you: if I were the one putting together a magazine, I'd want as much lead time as possible to make the best magazine possible, too.

(I've had one very nice rejection, from Interweave. I'm not really disappointed. I did my best, and it wasn't good enough; I'll just have to do better next time.)

The thing about the waiting, though, is that even though I'm not crazy enough to want to spew out patterns at the rate I did last year, I'm starting to get that itch that can only be scratched by self-publishing. That glow of (almost-)instant gratification: there is nothing quite like it.


Something Purple

I may  have started a little something on the side.
