As promised, here is the Onesie I finished last week, blocked but still without buttons. I did buy some, they just needed sewing on. All 10 of them. Ugh. I don’t like sewing on buttons, so it’s a good thing this turned out cute enough to make that worthwhile. :-)
I have moved Carolan onto a longer needle and and on the next to the last repeat of the main body stitch pattern. Here’s the most recent picture but I have knitted on it a bit more since. It’s a pleasant knit so far. The lace is just interesting enough but memorable so just a glance at the chart is plenty. I dislike having to look at the chart constantly.
I am in Lexington, KY for the Kentucky Fiber Festival this weekend. It’s a nice show, and so close to home for a change. It’s nice to only have to be away for three nights and to be home early on Monday. I have a few days home again before my next festival. Anyway, here’s a shot I took of the booth this morning before the market opened.
Okay, I lied, it’s two. :-)
I don’t have too much time today for blogging but I did want to announce that I have the pattern for the Honeydew Lace Square available for purchase on my website and on Ravelry.
It was quite an adventure to design, knit, and write, and I hope anyone else who decides to take the dive will have fun with it. You can purchase the Classic Merino Lace on my website if you are so inclined. :-)
I am excited to be returning to Greencastle, IN tomorrow for The Fiber Event. It has been quite a few years since the last time I was able to vend there and the weather looked like it may even be warm, so that is something to look forward to also. I will update you on my current knitting projects in my next post. I have got some packing to do. :-)
My last day in Nashville on Tuesday, we had the windows open and it was about 80 degrees. The grass already needs mowing and the trees are budding out. Today I am in Pittsburgh for the Pittsburgh Creative Arts Festival and this is what it looks like here.
Seriously? What is this Narnia before Aslan returned? Always winter but never Christmas? Yuck. Let me tell you, 28 degrees with gusting wind feels pretty darn cold after 80 degrees. I am praying for some change for the better in the very near future, and lots of patience in the mean time. The bright side is that the venue is very nice and bright, and I don’t have to load and unload the trailer in the elements. The loading dock is inside. I will be going over in a couple hours to do the booth set up.
I have written the pattern for the Honeydew Lace Square, which I think is what I will be calling it BTW, and hope to have it ready within a week. I have finished the first draft and consulted my friend Dee O’Keefe, designer extraordinaire, who was generous enough to help me with some edits. If I get any time this weekend I will be making her suggested revisions. As soon as it is ready I will announce it here, on Facebook and my newsletter.
I took these in the hotel room this morning to try out how it looks against a darker background. I really need to get some pictures that weren’t taken in a hotel room for the pattern at some point. ;-) These really aren’t half bad though.
Okay I better get to work. See ya later!
