New design in progress

These are in-progress photos of a new cardigan design I'm working on. I purposely left them a bit rough so I didn't give much away! The pattern will be part of Knitpicks Independent Designer program once it is completed, hopefully, in the next few days here. The sleeves are almost ready to attach to the body and then there is just the yoke and collar to complete.

The gingerbread train

Well, I made the girls wait until after all the Christmas cookies and snacks were mostly gone before we put together the gingerbread train. This was a lot of fun, and it looks so cool! lol

Enjoy the view, keep warm, and check out my two favorite online yarn shops, Eat.Sleep.Knit. and The Loopy Ewe. The first rewards purchases by the yard (see the Yarnathon) and the second rewards by dollars spent. Woohoo! Rewards for buying yarn? Why not? I'm off to shop...

Happy new year!

Happy 2010, everyone! Let's hope this new year brings joy and goodness to us all. To start, if you are reading this blog, chances are you like knitting or crochet and love yarn. Well, Jeff here is having a contest on his blog, and he is giving away cool stitch markers and gift certificates to Eat.Sleep.Knit. My fave online yarn shop! So I thought you all might want to check out his blog, although if you don't, that means less competition for me. Mwahaha! Just kidding. Go check it out and enter this cool contest for yourself.
