« My UFOs |
| Some new things... »
I feel like every time I post nowadays it’s to apologize that I haven’t posted in months and months nor have I stopped by anyone’s blog to say hi. Well, this time I have a really good excuse, which involves various personal wars with Comcast, some biological happenings, and good ol’ family holiday time. There are SO many things I want to post about (and I will shortly – I promise this time, cross my heart), but I wanted to just pop up real quick and say how excited I am that the book is out!
(I guess it’s been out since late November, but I’m somewhat behind the ball here). This is my design:
This definitely was a LOT of hard work and an eye opening experience. My yarn arrived really late in the process and I was just knitting my fingers to the bone for like a week straight to get this finished by the deadline. That is a feat in and of itself but then all those cables! Man oh man, was I beat. But I’m so happy with the result and I’m going to make another one for myself one of these days (the sample size was for tiny little models, I am not so much that small these days). And if you can at all get away with it, try out some of the Pear Tree Merino that is available through Yahaira’s yarn store at Pure Knits
. It is one of the most divine yarns that I have worked with (besides a pure cashmere) and the color variations come out exquisitely in the finished product.
So all in all, I am thrilled to be published and thrilled to have a design that I adore out there with my name on it. And I can’t wait to knit some of the other patterns in the book! The cover design is one of my favorites and that is going on my list, for sure.
I’ll be back soon with more information about what’s keeping me away from the blog so much and I hope to get by your blog soon. Miss you all!
