It’s been too long between posts, but things have been busy behind the scenes.
Much of the last few weeks has been taken up with serious house-hunting. I would love to say that all that effort, and time away from here, resulted in us owning our dream house – one acre, western red cedar, in a beautiful area. Alas, the dream house slipped away as we were outbid by the only other person trying to buy it at the auction.
So, sorry for the delay in posting, and I have nothing to show for it. Ha!
My testers have been busy, however.
Julie has been testing my Owl design, which she has embellished onto a Little Hoodlum jersey. Isn’t it cute? I have a few little bits of tweeking to do on the chart and then it will be ready for sale.
This pattern is a set of three tops for children with multiple adaptations and changes available to personalise and customise the garment. I hope to have some free knitting time soon to have a go myself.
Before I take up the knitting needles I will be finalising some more designs and putting a few up for sale.
The last Guitar chart is going out to testing today. Here is a preview of that set:
I am very grateful to the knitters who allow me to use them and their garments as my lab rats. One of the (many) recurring themes requested by my testers is guitars. They couldn’t decide whether they wanted electric or accoustic guitars, so both will feature in this design set. I love to have my designs tested by others or myself so that I can be sure of their quality and ease of use, and I love to pander to the wishes of these lovely women.
One last set of testing to show off: A tea set. Julie and Kathryn have made up these tests of a set which is almost ready for sale.
It’s a little different from the usual children-inspired themes. I designed this set with the idea of having embellishments on tea cosies, on purses, or bags.
