And a few other things I think I need to catch you all up on. Where has the time gone?!
First. The hat. Plucky Knitter designed the perfect hat to watch Netflix subtitled Mystery Series to (note: I loved Dicte and Witnesses). Meet the Conversationalist Hat. Modeled by not so little snowboarder, but I pretty much have worn it every rainy day we've had!
The gray definitely makes my blue eyes pop! It seems to do the trick for Emmypie's blue eyes too!
At the beginning of January I went to TNNA in San Diego. I debuted a new design there, Cobh, in Anzula's lovely fingering and DK yarns. I love this design....it's basically a Summer Wind shawl and perfect for playing with color.
Sabrina and Charlie, the lovely ladies from Anzula, and my shawl at Sample It
And our holidays were all about making memories, as they should be. I sure do hope you all had a lovely holiday and new year with your families too. Despite my absence here and ravelry, I've tried to keep up on Facebook and instagram and it looks like most of you have been busy too!
Because I LOVE this picture.
And sweet baby Emmypie looked like a Downton Abbey baby at her baptism too.
So there's the catching up. Today, I still haven't quite found my knitting mojo. I finished this single Ballydesmond back at the beginning of January at TNNA, and I'm still working on the second one?!
I have three new designs I need to write up, and I think that is what has stumped my mojo. I want to cast on a new design, but I won't let myself until I get those designs done. But at the same time, I don't really want to knit anything else.
But the days are getting longer, which is lovely. This was my view after work tonight.
A reminder to look up once in awhile :)
And I know this is late, but like last year, for the rest of the month we'll be celebrating birthday month around here! All patterns are 20% off for February! No coupon necessary. And hopefully by the end of the month I'll have those three new ones ready to go!
Next week is Stitches West so I'll definitely be back MUCH sooner to talk knitting!
