Did I Share the Devil’s Churn Mitts?

I’ve been working with Tina to develop a new accessories club for BlackSheep.  We talked through everything and finally settled on a hat knit by Tina and mitts knit by me for our first quarter.  Then we decided to make it even more fun with patterns inspired by Oregon.

I’m happy to present the Devil’s Churn Hat and Mitts!  Two patterns from 2 different designers, using the same cables and yarn.  I had so much fun finding just the right name for this set.  The Devil’s Churn is a wave carved inlet along the Oregon coast where the water crashes.  Our designs evoke that crashing with the braided cable which holds the “water” in and the churning center cable that send it crashing along the walls of the inlet.

These patterns each use 1 skein of Studio Donegal Soft Donegal.  Pick up your kit here or find out more about the hat pattern here and the mitt pattern here.

So I’m Still Here

I’ve been consumed by the book and trying to update everything. I thought I had the printer all worked out, but I don’t like the page quality. So now I’m looking for other options. It’s always fun, these little snags. I haven’t managed to tat the clues for days 10 & 11 yet. Maybe I’ll have time for that next week.

I’m still hoping to make my Feb. 15 deadline for the books to be printed. I’m not holding my breath at the moment though. What with the printing issues.

TIAS Clue 9

Ok. I thought I had a handle on what the Tat It And See motif was this year, but the more I look at it, the less I can tell what it is.  I know we are close to the end of the game, but I’m less sure now.

I was convinced that it was going to be a frog for quite a while.  Now.  I’m just stumped.  What do you think?

Fun Class Last Night

I took a fabulous class last night on how to darn my knitting.  I’ve knit a few socks and I had a few that were in need of attention because, you know, they had holes or almost holes. 

Turns out it is both simple and magical all at the same time.  And I had help from the other students and instructor to repair most of my socks too!  There are but 6 socks left to darn. :)

TIAS Day 6

image

It took me a little longer to finish the 6th clue for Tat It And See. I had to wait until I had put in more of the final edits for the new book. I think it’s almost done. I’ve sent it off for a check at the publisher’s.  I’m publishing it independently which is exciting and terrifying.  You’ll be able to find it as an Ebook on Ravelry and at BlackSheep. You can also order a print copy through BlackSheep.  Those will be signed!  I’m not sure how popular my book will be, but I have really enjoyed the process of learning how to put this book together.


A Little Tropical Peek

Hi!  See this?  It’s a sneak peek.  Of my tropical citrus shawl.  There are kits.  They are AWESOME.  The pattern is nearly done at the test knitter’s and I’m so excited to see it all knit up.  There are more photos on Ravelry and you are welcome to go grab the pattern now, or order a kit.  I’ll put the link here. Yes.  Go check it out.  I’m really pleased.

ps.  There are more patterns coming.
