Knitwear Designer//Pattern Drafter//Author//Teacher monday & workshop reminder

ok. i have casted on for the cap sleeve KAL and this is as far as i’ve gotten. hmph. i like the pattern quite well since it seems simple enough and well written but i find myself facing seams once again. i considered working in the round and saying damn it all - but - i suppose i’ll do as told and knit along merrily so. i’ll post more about the colors once there’s enough to actually see what i’m doing. it’s nothing more than a simple slip stitch, but i didn’t want a striped sweater and the slips are creating subtle little scallops - just enough to break it up.

this is another baby blanket for one of my mother’s friends. it’s not any sort of pattern but i think it’s going to turn out just as sweet as can be. i told you all i had lots of interest in that picot edge for other things and i think it’s just the frill this blanket was crying out for. one and a half sides are finished now and i hope to have it tied up and blocked by the end of the week. i’m really eager to see how it blocks. the yarn is knitpicks superwash in worsted weight so it’s snuggle soft and springy. i keep pulling on it this way and that to see if i can eye up the size it will end up.

sadly, that is all for now. i had a full week last week and will have an equally full week again. which reminds me….
