More reveals!

SWTC has released 3 of my sock patterns for their yarn Infatuation.  They can be bought separately, or with a 4th pattern here.  Each of the sock names will take you to the separate patterns.  They are:
Mardi Gras, Jesamine, and Mossy Diamonds.  Their photography is so much better than mine!  Plus, I can't seem to find where I put the pix I took of each sock.
Some knitting that I did for myself, a hat and some warm mittens.  There is also a sweater, but I still need to get good pix of that before I post them.

Possum Fox & Geese

This is another pair of the Fox and Geese mittens,  but they're mine.  I did them in CTH's Possum worsted.  So soft and fluffy!


This is Dream Big Verve-a REALLY fast knit.  I started Sunday night, and was done not even 24 hours later, and that includes time to sleep and go to work totaling 15 hours of down time.

More turtle stitch markers

Bird stitch markers

Turtle stitch markers

Dancing bear stitch markers

And a bunch of fun stitch markers I made.  If you like any of them that you see here, let me know.  I also do simple earrings.  Just email me!

Twinkle Shawlette

Since the magazine is now published, I can share the pictures of it.  Look for it in the June 2011 issue of Knit 'N Style magazine.  Jonelle sent me this skein of Little Star, and I loved the colors.  I worked the trial run in Tofutsies, as you can see by the modeling of the DD.

I didn't have my model the day I needed to send this in, so all I have is it on the blocking mat.  This is a fast and fun project, I can't wait to see what people do with it!

Super Secret knitting revealed

Jonelle of SWTC released a sneak peak of my very first published pattern. Yes, I've self published before, but this is in a magazine! Knit 'N Style, to be exact. There are 2 other great patterns in SWTC yarns as well. Follow the linkie to read on (for those of you who saw it on Facebook, sorry for the repitition-can you tell I'm super excited?):

In spinning news, I picked up some merino/tussah silk at Nezinscot Farms in Turner. They're an organic working farm, the store is GORGEOUS, and they are some of the nicest people around. Plus, they deal in Ashford spinning supplies. I try not to go in very often because of this fact. A knitter can never have too many knitting needles, a spinner can never have too many bobbins.
The fiber is called autum; I'm thinking a Helix Scarf from the newest Spin Off is in order for this yarn. It may even become a gift or a giveaway...

In like an arctic blast

Spring is supposed to start in 19 days.  Tomorrow we're expecting temps in the teens.  Again.  And more snow Sunday/Monday.  This is why rodents should not be allowed to forecast the weather.
I have a design that is coming out in next month's Knit 'N Style that I did for SWTC.  I can't wait for it to be published. 
In other fronts, I did spin up a braid of BFL from in the colorway mums.  I got a 3 ply, 378 yds.  Enough for socks, maybe a shawlette.  We'll see.  I just needed some spring colors.  I'm itching for my lillies to poke their heads through the garden.  Enough snow.
