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…
Completed the Sabrina A-Line Sweater by Vera Sanon in a KAL in the ravelry group, The Curvalicious Sisterhood
I came across this website, Rhythm of the Needles, and thought I would share it with you. Apparently the site’s URL changed and the owner is trying to get the word out. Go visit her!
I finally finished my Sabrina A-line sweater. It’s a Vera Sanon design and was a KAL through the Ravelry group, The Curvalicious Sisterhood. I like how it turned out.
I’m still knitting my second wingspan. It’s become my knit-away-from-home project, so it doesn’t get a lot of work.
I also am knitting Wendy Johnson’s summer shawl for her knitalong. I was all caught up…then fell behind! I’ll catch up this weekend. It’s gorgeous and I’m using a really pretty blue yarn.
I designed a cowl and took it to String Theory Yarn Company in Glen Ellyn (IL) for the Pediboo contest. It turned out really cool and I’ll be writing up the pattern for it. I didn’t get to take pictures, so it won’t get done until I get the cowl back in mid-September.
