I’m working on a set of new designs for winter. I know it’s summer here in the Northern hemisphere, but I’ve found over the last couple of years that I really need to start planning ahead silghtly more!
The set will have a neckwarmer style fitted cowl (shown here, still needs finishing), matching hat and matching full mittens, all worked in chunky weight yarn so they should be quick knits. I hope to have those patterns released in the autumn.
As well as that I have a new DK weight shawl design just going into testing, which should be out at the end of August, and a cushion pattern that is nearly ready for testing too.
In between all of that I’m working on Deann’s sock pattern still, which I hope to finish in the next few days, a simple blue pair of socks which are a gift, two colourwork vest tops (I’m designing those, which will take me some time), a laceweight shawl from a Romi pattern, and I’m still making the vintage 1940’s bedjacket project I’ve shown previously.
And…I also received this lovely yarn here in the second photo from Laura’s Loom which I plan to use in another shawl design. Just a few things on the go then….!
Deann is currently working on…
Deann is away this week, she’s visiting one of our lovely online knitting friends, Jean, for a day or two, so I’m filling in for her! Also I am green with envy! I hope to catch up with them both next year though if possible.
Deann is still working hard on her sock pattern, which is quite a complicated one to size, we’ve been doing that together as we knit the socks, and she’s also started designing a shawl, the start of which you can see here in the photo she gave me to put in. Now I can’t remember what the yarn is! She’s told me several times. I think it was Malabrigo Rios, but don’t quote me on that…
I know it’s been a little bit of a challenge to come up with something that will work well with the variegation, but I’m pretty sure she’s cracking that now, this looks good so far doesn’t it!
