just peachy

peach tree is now available! (as promised last week)

of course, you can find it on the side bar under knitting patterns —-> patterns for sale, or on ravlery

this design isn’t “my style” in particular which is sort of a strange thing to say, but when inspiration strikes!!! … in this case it was some yarn marked down that i couldn’t leave behind (peach and brown?  SOLD).  now that it’s finished and blocked i am so in love with it.  i can’t wait to see the colors people come up with for this pattern - especially some tonal or variegated yarns.  

i hope you love it as much as i do! xo

sip

hey y’all!  long time no see!

it’s warming up, you know.  the sun brings out the baker and iced tea sipper in me every year without fail.  it’s wonderful - sitting outside with my face tilted upward like tiny leaves stretching for the warm light - just not too great for knitting pattern writing.  who wants to sit at a computer and do that when there’s a world waking up!?

i have been working though - a bit.

and hazel made its debut today.

you can find it under PATTERNS —> PATTERNS for SALE over on the side bar, or here if you’re a raveler.

these patterns will be released soon, too!

ok.  maybe i haven’t been slacking THAT much.  ha!!

in other crafty news, we have a new little stitcher in the house…

mae has discovered embroidery.  i’m not sure what sparked her interest since i’ve never been much of an embroiderer…  she just asked for one of the round things and fabric so she could sew a picture.  she drew a house, wrote her name on a flour sack towel and was ready to go.  i showed her how to complete a back stitch once and she was off and running.  the girl sat steadily and stitched only stopping for mama to untangle knots or get her some more “string” until it was finished.  she even free handed a door and knob that she hadn’t drawn.  i was very impressed.  she titled it “my home”

i love it.

blog tour at my place & pattern giveaway!

are you just sick of me talking about meeting point yet? HA!

as i mentioned before, i will be knitting up some of the holla knits! spring 2013 collection as the weather heats up and my kids drag my butt outside to watch them dig holes and get re-acquainted with their inner dare devils. knitting keeps my eyes off the… ehem… action.

you should probably keep your eyes off the action, too so leave a comment below to enter the meeting point pattern giveaway. let me know what color you see it working up in - or how you broke your arm in fourth grade - or how many sun hats you own… what ever strikes your fancy. comments made by 11:59pm EST on wednesday, may 1st will be entered to win (winner will be announced on thursday, may 2nd). good luck!

follow along as the tour continues on for more spectacular giveaways.
