In which I am unBEARably cute.

Oh so many things going on this week!
The baby blanket is done and will be gifted this week. I'm planning to release it as a pattern, so you know, you'll probably see that coming in a few years, with my track record.
Best Bear Baby Blanket... Bever?
We got some really cute crewel kits in at work from Wool & Hoop. I'm making 'China Blue No 2' (mostly because it's the only one we got that isn't orange and pink, which soooo don't go in our house), and it reminds me of those wicked spirograph toys I had as a kid, and would kill to get my hands on again...
I am also working on a really nifty easy scarf design that when done will be another Urban Yarns free pattern. It's done with four skeins of Koigu (I'm doing mine in two colours), and the single hardest thing I have done all week was deciding on the colours - we have like 50 or 60 colours at work, and oh man is that overwhelming! Can you guess the stitch?
As usual, progress on the long terms projects is... progressing.
Over and out!

In which a few things happen

First off, that pink blanket from my last post just got cuter! I've chosen some Liberty fabric for the lining, which will be a first for me, so send me good sewing luck? Baby Blanket And in other news, I have a new design out! We've started to launch a line of patterns at work, and I have designed and knit a toque for the first submission.

In which I have irons in many fires

It's been a busy few weeks over here! Knitting season is getting into full swing, so lots of busy days and lots of classes at Urban Yarns (and lots more to come, hopefully!)

All that aside, I'm still diligently knitting away. I have cast on for the Shetland Shawl Dress.

And I am about to cast on for what I am hoping will become a convertible Baby Bunting Bag/Blanket. I am planning to release this as a new design, provided it all comes together.

In other news, I am stepping up my game at work and will be contributing to the store blog starting next week, so check us out there for some different content. I am also attempting to marshal some Urban Yarns patterns, the first of which is this ever-so-straightforward toque. The pattern is nearly done and I promise to post a link to the Ravelry page as soon as possible.

And finally I would like to mention that there are many more photos of my ongoing projects over on flickr. You should be able to click on any of the photos above and peruse all the others there.
