I hope this finds you all safe and well!
I’m thrilled to announce that the Ethereal Sweater pattern is now available in Spanish. Designer Marcela Chang, who hails from Chile, has added pattern translation to the services she offers, so I took her up on it. Now when you purchase the pattern here on knitequalsjoy.com or on my Payhip or Etsy shops, you will receive two PDFs, one in English and one in Spanish. I’m looking forward to offering more patterns in Spanish, as well.
Also news – my patterns are now available for purchase right here on knitequalsjoy.com. I am so happy to offer this capability to you now – it’s at least one step easier than before. Just go to the Patterns tab in the navigation bar and find the pattern(s) you want. You can sort under tags and you can also search now. And to celebrate, use the coupon code shopthewebsite2 from July 25th to August 16th for 25% off. The coupon is good on all Knit Equals Joy patterns purchased through knitequalsjoy.com.
The last bit of news is that I’ve designed a Little Ethereal. It’s currently in tech editing, and when it is through that process, it will be ready for test knitting. I’ll be looking for a few test knitters who have a little one available who can try on the sweater and also maybe provide some great pictures – because I don’t have any little ones nearby and no grands yet. Additionally, I will be looking for testers who can knit this pretty quickly and who have previously completed test knits. If this sounds like you and sounds like something you would like to do, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I wanted to give my fabulous knitting friends first stab at this, and then will offer the test on Yarnpond. The sizes are 0-6 mo, 6-12 mo, 1-2 yr, 2-4 yr, 4-6 yr, 6-8 yr, and 8-10 yr, and it is knit in fingering weight yarn.
I have a couple of vacation days coming up, so I’m hoping that I can start working on 2020’s pumpkin design. I have some great yarn for it, and I think it will be a cute but not too difficult addition to the pumpkin patch! Now that Little Ethereal is written up and out of my head, I’m starting to get excited about pumpkins and the 2020 Pumpkin-A-Long! I hope you will join in!!!
