Nashua Handknits Spring pattern books!!

Today I received my copies of the new Spring/Summer pattern books from Nashua Handknits. This time around, I did two designs.

This is the first one, in Nashua Handknits Cilantro (the most springiest bounciest cotton yarn ever) from the North American Designer Collection No. 8 book. I'm especially excited about this one because it has my signature on the photo page (yes, I get excited easily- deal with it).

The is the other, from the Natural Style book. It's in Nashua Ecologie Wool, which I also love for the texture.

Not exactly knitting related...

Been REALLY busy lately (cranking out a sweater a week since Thanksgiving, I think, plus edits) so not much to share that's shareable... however, the Hubbo did make a nice cake for Emma's birthday party this past weekend.

(The theme was Littlest Pet Shop)

More stuff is coming down the line soon-- be on the lookout for the next (2nd) issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Knitting in the next few weeks. This is the first one I worked on as tech editor, plus I have a design in it as well.

Unexpected Side

People who know me know that I'm not the most, shall we say, demonstrative person. I don't cry at movies, I don't get choked up at weddings-- you get the idea. However, that's not to say that I don't have a secret sappy side. Check out the last page of the new (winter) Knit Simple to see what I mean.

New year, new yarn

Last night I finished plying my very first handspun sock yarn! It's 488 yards of superwash merino, from a Lorna's Laces top. I think it turned out pretty well!
