Long Break

Hi again!! I took a very long break and now it is time to write. I want to let you know what I have been doing on the knitting scene.

Today I sent off two new patterns for Crystal Palace Yarns, see the link on the right side of the blog. Both designs used the Bamboozle Yarn in the Painted Roses Color.

The first design is a capelet, the second a matching pair of wristlets. I will let you know when the pattern is up on the web site. The stitch patterns used in both designs are seed stitch, stockinette and a right twist cable and a left twist cable. The wristlets are easy and they only take 2 balls of Bamboozle. A great project to learn to work cables.

I have also been doing a little knitting for hire, I am making a simple vest for one of the customers at HeartStrings, I am glad to say I started it soon enough and will have it completed in plenty of time for Christmas. (Have you started your Christmas gifts yet)?

Well I gotta go-I promise to write more soon, as I have more to tell you about my knitting adventures.

Casual, Elegant Knits

As we were working on this book, we were carefully reviewing each pattern many times. We were hoping to make sure that all the information written in the pattern is correct and nothing is missing. However, in a real world of publishing, it is almost a rule that something will get into print that was not corrected. We apologize for any inconvenience these misprints may have caused you.
