Well, it’s been a long time between posts, but here I am. My difficult pregnancy is over and looking back, I realize it was I who made it much more difficult than it should have been. Our darling son Judah was born September 16th. He is a gem of a baby and allows mommy some knitting time by being such a content little guy, not to mention gorgeous. Tiny knits abound for him.
Thank you to all of you who have stuck with me, and are getting this via your email account or your e-reader.
I’ve been breaking my one-project-at-a-time rule and have several projects on my needles, some my own – some belonging to others.
Not only a blog neglecter, I haven’t updated my Ravelry account either, so I’ll share the projects of others I have on the go here with the feature photo from their Ravelry pattern page.
The first is Blight by Deborah Frank, I started this project as a KAL (knit along) when the pattern was first released. I think it is safe to say I am going be the last to finish it. It is gorgeous and an easy pattern to memorize. This is the second pattern I’m knitting by Deborah and I must say her patterns are beautiful without being difficult.
I also started Pepita by Martina Behm with the yarn that was a hat and then was not. Luckily it is not a newborn size or it would be too small by now. It is a sweet pattern and great for newmom-brain, seeing as it is mostly just the knit stitch.
And finally Promise Me by Boo Knits. Trying to decide what beads to use has delayed this project for quite some time.
Then there are the various projects of my own on needles too! Several baby hats, sweaters and booties have been completed, knit from my head without any notes to write up the pattern, but knit for the sheer joy of it. A couple of my other patterns will pop up here shortly.
Since the weather here has turned cold with snow on the ground here, I’ll leave you with our first guest designer. Lauren Hawkeye Murray has the cutest little hat for you called Elfish to keep you warm, as winter makes it’s way to you this year. I hope you’ll knit one and share your results.
