Things are busy as usual here in the studio. I'm in the middle of finishing up a new pattern for release in the next few weeks, and the project has just grown to the size that I can't carry it in my bag with me everywhere I go.
...and you KNOW I can't go anywhere without knitting!
So, I decided to knit the Caden scarf again. This time I'm using Chickadee in Winesap (a beautiful, saturated red). Caden is just such an easy-to-remember pattern, it's perfect for my lunch/break/wakingup/fallingasleep knitting time.
This new Caden scarf will be an ongoing project, with no deadline (which means it might never get done; I just got an email with a call for designs and that means swatching should also commence!
Caden is available through Quince and Co's ebook: Scarves, Etc. 2013. More information about the pattern and ebook can be found HERE.
In other news, I'm working feverishly on the ebook of hat patterns that will benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The pieces that are coming in are incredible and I'm so happy to be working with such talented designers!
Of course, I knew that this would be a lot of work. Creating and releasing a single pattern takes hours and hours and hours of work on the computer. Every step, from laying out the pattern to paper, to coordinating photography, must be done as nicely as possible. In this case, it's a quantity of patterns and it's fun to work with the different pieces to create a unified book.
It will be rewarding to share that project with you and I will do that just as soon as I can. I should also mention that a couple yarn companies have stepped forward and offered gift certificates as prizes!
More to come... so stay tuned! And as always, thank you for your support.
