It’s certainly been a while since I’ve released a new design. However, I have a couple that are in the works to be released next month:
These fingerless mitts include a flirty stranded knit pattern and are a quick knit. My 9-year-old daughter modeled this child size version – complete with her “lovely” painted nails. 🙂
Also in test is a crochet design. It’s an afghan I created several years ago but never got around to publishing. I originally made this as a square lapghan (shown here). Soon after, I tore it apart, added more blocks and turned it into a wider and longer version for my daughter’s bedroom.
My excitement is growing about these soon-to-be-released patterns! But also because I am making progress on many more designs that were languishing these past months!
My designing mojo has returned! One reason: submitted a design call for a magazine and came up with the swatch as my concept. I am itching to make it happen, whether or not it’s accepted by the magazine. I ordered the yarn last week and hope to begin this weekend!
