I feel like I've been in a constant state of limbo most of the year with my knitting and pattern writing.
Because of a serious lack of communication from a certain yarn company (that I'm not so fond of anymore), I always had to make sure I wasn't committing to or concentrating on much just in case today I'd get the email to say it's all go and I have 8 weeks to write and knit two complicated patterns (if only they had let me know - way back in March - what yarn to design for!)
Little Plum Yarn Supertwist Sport in Mocha
But the freedom I'm feeling now it's all done and over makes me love knitting again! (I'd started to loose the love for it, I suppose that's what happens when it's a have to.)
Little Plum Yarn Supertwist Sport in Peony
Even though I've been in Pattern-Writing Limbo, I've still been planning new designs to work on as soon as I could.
And buying yarn to knit them with!
Olive & Emma 4ply Merino in Cade with Trim
So now I've just cast on to make a variation of this pattern:
That's my Little Man at just 6 days old - he turned 6 weeks old yesterday and not really fitting this cardy anymore!
I'm making a few changes to make it a little more quirky and funky. I can't wait to show you the finished knit! (I'm using the grey and brown yarn above which is a made-for-me colourway from Olive & Emma. It's looking gorgeous so far!)
