Knitting sets your mind free and makes you see the other side of whatever this will be.....the purlside or the happier side of life!

My Newest Design Is Still A Secret...

Oh how I am excited about my newest design for Knitter's Magazine! And I can't tell about it.....
They will bring out their 100th issue soon and this is a reason to CELEBRATE.....hint hint. This time I went totally overboard on colors and a rainbow could look pale against my design. So hang in there with me until I can show the picture!

My newest design! 
Just fresh off the needles (US 6) and it only uses three balls of yarn! I chose a 100% cotton tape yarn of course in black. It is a fun piece to knit. Starting with the lace part while you still are excited about your new project and ending with knit and purl rows when one is usually not as interested any more. The pattern for this project is available in my Etsy store and once I have a good picture it will also be on  Ravelry  which is actually the best knitting site I know. 

Right now I guess I am in my more lacy phase probably because it is hot here?

This was a busy week getting the last things done before the kids are home from school. To make things more exciting I got a new design accepted for Knitter's Magazine . It will be their 100ths issue and I thought this would a good reason to design an item called "CELEBRATE". I wonder if they will keep the name?

The Vogue people will make a new book about baby items and there will be three of my designs in it as well.
Lots of good news!
