Fall, Mad About Plaid, Cheers to Ewe

Hey y’all!  I hope everyone is enjoying these great (almost) Fall days! I’m so happy that football is back, and tonight we had some amazing pumpkin pasta with Autumn alfredo sauce.  It was fabulous, and it tasted like Fall.

I know you’ve been seeing Plaid Pumpkin pictures all over the place along with a ton of Pumpkin-A-Long posts over the last few days.  My apologies for the inundation of information – I wanted to get all the info out there at the beginning and have it in an easily accessible place for any general questions about how the PAL works.

Main things to remember: make any Knit Equals Joy pumpkin, post finished picture on Instagram with correct tags or in the Knit Equals Joy Facebook group; finish everything by Halloween.  Prizes, fun.  That’s it!  This post: The Second Annual Pumpkin-A-Long (PAL) has all the details in much more detail-y form.  The prizes are there now, too.

So, speaking of pumpkins and patterns, I recently started adding my designs to a new pattern site, PatternVine.  I was drawn to the look of the site – it’s very lovely.  I’ve slowly been updating my patterns – adding the new logo and better photos – and then adding them to PatternVine.  I wanted my customers to have several different options available for purchasing my patterns.

Ladianne is one of the owners of PatternVine as well as of a yarn shop called Cheers to Ewe, and she purchased and is making the Large Colorwork Pumpkins pattern, spider version.   Cheers to Ewe has a weekly show, and last Saturday they chatted a bit about my pumpkin patterns.  I am of course biased because of that, but I really enjoyed the show.  The enthusiasm was contagious, and you can tell they were having a good time.  But I loved how the show was built around variations on a theme – plaid, in this case.  If you have time and are so inclined, you might enjoy the show.

Enjoy the rest of your week, and happy knitting!

xoxo
