I’ve been steadily working through some new pattern swatches that I needed to make. The third one is currently blocking with some changes to be made to that one and two are complete, with three more to make this week.
I also got one sample knit finished and blocked. The new pattern is partly written and it just needs photographing, that will only happen when the weather co-operates at this time of year.
Late last night after some charting I was able to cast on the second sample knit. The extra time taken on charting and thinking through each individual component of this knit will benefit it at this stage.
As part of the Indie Design Gift-A-Long that is currently running I’m going to be making this The Ghost Hunters Cloche, I did a little stash diving and found a very precious Malabrigo yarn in my stash, Paris Night is the shade, so a nice inky dark blue (this is my most favoured yarn but is quite hard to get over here so when I do get some I choose the project for it carefully!).
The Fledermaus socks are on hold at the moment as I have tons of design work to get through.
So, the list now looks like this;
