Yay! Fall is here!!

I love this time of year so much! I guess it's a holdover from school days, but it always feel like a time of new beginnings for me. After the heat and laziness of summer, I am ready to Do All the Things! Clean my house, bake a pie, dig up things to take to Goodwill, start a good book, knit some sweaters!  To celebrate my favorite season, I'm having a sweater sale - for one week, starting today, all of my sweater and vest patterns on Ravelry will be 25% off using the coupon code SWEATERWEATHER.

You can see all my sweater designs here.

I also released a new cowl pattern recently. Tuck is on sale for 40% off through September 27.

(Unfortunately you can't take advantage of both sales at once - you will have to go through the check out twice if you want both Tuck on sale and a sweater or vest pattern with the coupon. Sorry for the inconvenience.)

Winter is coming :)

Productive Procrastination

This is my daughter's phrase. I don't really have much to say today, but wanted to share because I thought it describes perfectly what I do sometimes   a lot. Usually when I need to finish up a knit (hello, sleeve island or thousand stitch bind off) and am tired of working on it. Instead of knitting I will check over the pattern, play around with the pattern page draft, make lists of what to knit, what to design, when to release things. Organize my stash. Do 'research' on Ravelry. Cast on for the next thing. Post on my blog :)  All things that need to be done but not necessarily what I should be doing.

Right now I need to knit the second sleeve for this:

But I'm not. I cast on for knit #2 for a new cowl design. I wonder if 3D printers can do sleeves?
