Some Quick Updates

Sorry for the long delay in posting again. I have been just super busy knitting the days away! Since my last post, I have started and finished two more custom orders. Can anyone say “Basic Black Cowl”?

You guessed it! Another order for a basic black cowl. Who would have thought that this would have been so popular? Then again, it’s been such a brutal winter that everyone is struggling just to stay warm.

Speaking of which, as I mentioned in my last post, when I wore my lovely blue arm-knitted infinity scarf, a fellow coworker saw it and asked me if I could make her one. So here it is in all its glory:

In other fronts, my green shawl border is crawling towards the finish line. I have just one more side to go and I will be done! Here is a sneak peek at my progress:

In other news, I was gently guided by hints from home that we could use some freshening up around the house with some new placemats. So I worked out a super easy pattern on my own and started knitting away with some cotton yarn I had lying around:

I now have one completed and second one on its way. I have decided to call my pattern Springtime placemats and will hopefully have a written pattern worked out soon. For now, it’s all in my head. I think that is a good thing – right?

Last but not least, I have waited close to month for some new Dreamz knitting needles to come in to my local yarn shop. To explain, I have completely fell in love with the needle brand Knitter’s Pride Dreamz knitting needles! I have been currently working on my placemats with a size US 8 and was excited to order another set. I had set aside a spring lace scarf pattern that I am dying to use these new needles with. I am very happy to report that they came in yesterday! I rushed right over last night to pick up my new Knitter’s Pride needles. With my new set of needles, I picked up my first hank of premium yarn! It is a gorgeous washable sport-weight merino wool from Lorna’s Laces call “Passion”.

These are supposed be “ the” colors of the season so I am super excited to be working this scarf pattern soon. But first, thing’s first- I must get that shawl done…

That’s all I got for now!

Until next post 🙂
