In a different direction….

Greetings from a balmy Maryland.

We are gearing up for the parental units to arrive beginning Sunday and then again on Wednesday.  It’s really going to feel like Thanksgiving here this year.

I’ve not blogged much I know and I’m sorry.  Being a mother of a pre-teen is mentally exhausting.  If you have kids, you understand.

I decided to try something different and it still involves dying the yarn and knitting…..DESIGN.  Yep, I stuck my toes in and it was fun.  I have my first published pattern on Ravelry and in my shop and you can get it.  I went slow and steady with this and wonderful knitter friends did the tech edits for me.  Here it is, may I present, Snug Harbor Infinity Cowl by yours truly.

It’s a wonderful cowl that combines my love of lace, texture and stripes.  Think about all the possible color combinations.  This is my favorite way to wear it but it can also be worn long.  I did this in Yankee Sole II, fingering weight yarn.  Help share the love on Ravelry!!

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did designing and knitting it.  And that  is what I’ve been up to.  What’s on your needles?

Till next time…..!
