What’s in the Hopper

Hi everyone!  It has been a busy week as I’ve been working behind the scenes getting the Passport Mitts pattern ready for general release.

I’ve been working with the large size to get that motif centered on the back of the hand, and I’m very happy with the solution.  Now to finish up the rewriting and to send the draft to the tech editor tonight.

I will announce the release here as well as on Ravelry.  I can’t wait!!!  We’re also having a knitalong in my Ravelry group starting October 1st.  Look for more information here in the days to come!

Although it has taken a backseat for a few days, here is the progress on the Colorwork Tee:

This weekend I will be playing with numbers, measurements, calculations, and ordering some more Sunday Knits yarn.  I can’t wait to move ahead with this!

I hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll catch up with you soon!

Colorwork Tee Progress

I’m pleased to report that progress is being made on the colorwork tee design I’m working on.  Fabric is taking shape!

The Sweater

Here is the back of the sweater so far, designed using information garnered from the swatch discussed in What I Learned from the Swatch.  Soon the sweater will transition into the Espresso and Carrot colorways (see end of post).

The sweater front is top secret for now (!)

I’m planning to write the pattern in at least three sizes which will approximate women’s small, medium and large.   As I get further along, I’ll know whether I will be able to add in any other sizes.  If you are interested in test-knitting, please let me know – although right now, given that the unexpected often occurs during the design process, I don’t know exactly when the test will start.  More info to come later.

I’m so excited to see the finished sweater design and pattern!  Thanks for taking a look with me!
