Quick post here to just show+tell you a few things… first, super last minute, but I’ve mentioned it before, if you’re in Seattle I hope to see you at Knit Fit! this weekend! I’ll be teaching Self-Publishing on Saturday (tomorrow) afternoon, then hosting a Game Knitting night Saturday night, then teaching the Sideways Edge Cast-on and Bind-off techniques on Sunday morning. I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to sign up last minute for any of these if you want to (this doesn’t go for all Knit Fit! classes, but I believe mine have room for last minute students), plus the market is open to the public all day Saturday and Sunday.
This is the dishcloth I made last night in preparation for the Game Knitting night – I game knit this to Say Anything… using short rows for my game pattern. I really like how it turned out!
Moving on to other stuff… I was recently interviewed for the Happy Knits blog! Go check that out to read me talk about my love of knitting, design, music, and more.
I finished a minor update to leethal.net! (which includes the blog) I need to give it a major update, but can’t find the time this busy season, so I settled for changing some of the colors and the headers for now. Now the colors match leethalknits.com (sort of, not totally) and the headers feature these drawings, just to mix things up, hooray for change!
Another bit of news for pacific northwest locals – I’ll be heading down to Corvallis for a trunk show at Stash later this month! I’ll be hanging out (with my knits) for the knit night on Wednesday, November 14th, and then my stuff will continue to hang at the shop for about a week. So, if you are in the Corvallis area, come by on the 14th if you can, or stop in any time for the following week to see my knit goodies, yay!
You know how I’ve been talking about how I’m working on my first stranded colorwork design? Well here are some peeks at my first samples! It’s still very much in progress, but I’m hoping to be able to start having it test knit next week, and release it mid-month if all goes well! (If you are an experienced stranded colorwork knitter and are interested in test knitting, check out the testing info here and let me know!)
All 5 sections have been released, and you can see lots of finished shawls in the forums and the project pages… if you like what you see, you can buy the pattern now and get all 5 sections in the separate mystery pdfs (totaling the complete pattern). Next week (hopefully on Tuesday), I’ll be releasing the final complete pattern, all in one file with photos. I think this knit-a-long went pretty darn well, I hope everyone had tons of fun!!
