I Won!

String Theory, a local yarn store, held a contest this summer and I entered. I had to use a skein of Pediboo yarn and knit something. I designed a cowl and I won! I am so pumped! I had absolutely zero expectations of winning, so this is extra great!

When I get the cowl back I will be writing up the pattern to sell. It will be my second in my line of pattern designs. Then I’ll be working on the third. I have an idea for a baby hat…

By the way, the Pediboo yarn was a dream to work with. I loved how it felt and it knit up like a dream for me. I have another skein in lime green…what to do what to do…

My Wendy’s Summer Solstice KAL Shawl is Done!

Yay, I finished! I didn’t finish right on time, but I got it done during summer. That counts, right? I mean, it was even the right year!

I added some width (about 20 extra inches according to the pattern notes) and a little to the depth. It’s definitely big enough. But it’s really really wispy and will only be good during the hot summer days! There should be a few more of those this year though, so I’ll get to use it.

This was knit with Knit Picks Gloss Lace. I really like the yarn. Luckily, I have some more in a nice lavender color. Oh what to knit!

Let me know what you think!
