Can you believe it’s still Feb? It feels like spring has well and truly arrived. We’ve been daffodil hunting today at our local woodland, where the snowdrops are beginning to fade and daffodils are starting to take over. Which makes it a fitting day to announce that my Daffodil Hunter shawl knitting pattern is released.
I’m so pleased with this design which is being sold on love knitting to raise funds for help refugees, why not check out their other designs?
Happy Daffodil hunting 🙂
As we begin 2019 it seems like a good time to look back at 2018.
In 2018 I restarted this blog after a long break, I published 11 designs on Ravelry including October Rose Mitts, Anna’s Chunky Hat and a free Tropical Bowl pattern. I ran my Rainbow Shawl CAL here and on instagram and I had my designs published in two different editions on Your Crochet and Knitting magazine.
I’ve had a blast making and sharing my creative projects in 2018. There is pressure at new year to look ahead and make big plans for the coming year. Honestly I don’t feel like I can make plans a whole year ahead – there are a lot of changes coming up including little brother starting nursery and big brother starting school. I can’t get my head around that!!
So rather than set goals for the whole of 2019 now I’m just going to focus on the first quarter of the year. From now until the end of March I hope to have published 3 more patterns, including at least one that is for charity.
Happy new year!
A while ago I posted that I was looking for testers to test my latest fingerless mitten pattern – well now those testers have done their stuff and I’m pleased to be able to release October Rose. These mittens are worked in the round from the bottom up.
To celebrate their release this pattern is currently 50% off on ravelry until Monday – so hurry and buy them now 😉
This sample was made with The Fibre Co. Acadia [60% Merino wool, 20% baby alpaca, 20% silk; 133 m / 145 yds per 50 g hank] with colours Rosebay and Jack Pine.
I’m very excited about my latest pattern, October Rose fingerless mittens, which you may have already seen pics of if you follow me on instagram. I’ve written up and charted the pattern, I’ve made my sample and had the pattern tech edited. Now all the remains before I can release it is to get it test knit. Sign up on Ravelry if you’d like to test this pattern for me! https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/the-testing-pool/3830280/1-25
