pattern release catch-up!

It's almost stupid to say (or think, or feel), but sometimes getting back into the world where my feet are planted and I can feel gravity pull is an enrichment.  Online life is big; sometimes too big.  Living without sharing the living has a catch, because I love looking back to remember the smells and feelings of days past... and so I seek balance in this as I do with all things.

I took a few months off from submitting design work because, again, I needed to feel gravity pulling me.  I needed to slow down and really feel it.  I'm one that can't have idle hands, so it was a challenge - but also because I knew how much potential income I was letting go of.  BUT, you see, that time off filled me up.  I'm ready to start moving again and reacquaint myself with a manageable pace. 

During my brief retreat, a few really lovely patterns were released.  First, my Cruz shawl in Interweave Knits Summer.

Next, I was so fortunate to have a design included in Berroco Portfolio Vol 2 - the Hoehne Vest.  I love this & Berroco is hosting a KAL, but they're asking for knitters to vote for the piece that will be worked!  HERE is a link to voting (closes Jul 19th)

Finally, I managed to have two hats in the new Interweave book, The Knitted Hat Book. The first is a simple lace beanie with a latvian braid band (Thistle Lace Beret); the other a delicate lace kerchief hat worked in a scrumptious silk (Sunshine Lace Kerchief).

There are still a few patterns queued up for release, but my next post will be completely knitting-free and full of obnoxious photos from our summer trip.  You've been warned ;)
