It’s Been a While

Category: wip

I’ve been running back and forth between so many projects lately– for the store and personal work at home — that I’ve completely forgotten that I haven’t made a blog post about coloring page sketches in a while!  Lucky for you all, this means there’s plenty to take a peek at. Here are some past sketches, some possible future ones, and a tiny sprinkling of leftovers from lunch breaks (if you can spot them).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Work-In-Progress Tuesday

Category: wip

This is a hectic week, so please forgive this short post. I’ve been busy preparing for our Black Friday/Local Saturday Sale (25-75% off selected yarns on 11/25 and 11/26!) and I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is the day after tomorrow! My family does a delicious but low-key Turkey Day, so I’m anticipating having some good knitting time on Thursday.

Normally it’s WIP (Work-In-Progress) Wednesday, but I never get to blog on Wednesdays, so I’m declaring today WIP Tuesday. I’m really excited to share my latest project with you for two reasons: one, I’m designing it myself, and two, IT’S SO SOFT!!

I’m using one skein of Berroco Folio Luxe: img_7561

And one skein of Caribou by HiKoo: img_7562

It’s going to be a simple cowl (simple enough to knit while playing trivia and talking with friends), and it’s going to be soft, and cozy. Like, fleece-blanket-and-pajamas-on-the-sofa-while-watching-Miss-Fisher’s-Murder-Mysteries-and-drinking-hot-chocolate cozy. But at the same time, it’s going to look ultra chic because of the sheen and subtle sparkle in the Folio Luxe, so you can wear it out to your holiday parties and have everyone ask, “Where did you get that?”.

So far it looks like this: img_7559

But soon it will be the ultimate in glamor and comfort! Stay tuned for the finished item and pattern to come.

More Coffee, Please

Congratulations, Sunday. At the end of a hysterical month involving planning for literally a million different projects both fiber related and not, Pennsic homesickness (I’m not crying, you’re crying), trying to find a new place to live (don’t worry, we found one), and not getting any sleep in between, you caught me off guard with the need for a blog post; However, one of those millions of planned projects is new coloring pages, so I hope you all will enjoy another impromptu pile of sketches!

Sometimes lunchbreaks give me needle felting ideas.
