Random happenings

I’ve had a lot of business travel lately, so I haven’t done much sitting around and taking pictures. Airports are good for knitting time, though, so I finally have sneak pictures of the next sweater design for you:

It’s called “Adelina”, after Diana’s grandmother. Diana herself was the original inspiration for this design.

The original plan was for this to be March’s design, but it got bumped a bit by my entry for the Socks Revived design contest. The sweater will be released mid-April, I expect. It’s my hope that you’ll get the pattern for these socks in March:

I’m calling them Hootenanny, and the pattern is back from the tech editor and everything. I’m just waiting to finish that second sock before taking pictures and releasing it. We’ll see if I can manage that in the next few days.

What else has been going on? Well, I have a secret project of a different kind in the works. I’m not ready to talk about it in detail yet, but I’ll give you two hints. Hint 1: It’s not a pattern. Hint 2: It involves a day filled with friends, wine/snacks, and a ton of clothes.

    I look forward to see both FOs! The two colors sweater looks nice with lots of mindless stockinette! I love that! And I love the blue & brown socks! Have a good weekend!

    Lots of titbits for us to see there, I look forward to seeing the finished knits. The brown and pink go so well together.

    I’ve always been a big fan of the word Hootenanny, even though I’ve never been sure how to spell it! Thus, I will love the socks. It’s fate (nods).
