I visited my birth country's hand-knitting association site: UKknitting.com and discovered the cutest Ipod cover by Aneeta Patel. I wish I thought of it. You can get the free pattern here.
My blogging has slowed down a bit, as I am knitting furiously. I have 5 designs on the go: 4 for this site and Ravelry and one for the Baby book. As they are all wool patterns, I was in a panic last week when the warm front rolled in. Luckily (???), we are in another cold snap (what was I thinking? It's January in Canada!) and we have another 2-3 months of wearing woolies. The lovely warmish weather serve to shock me into thinking about Spring /Summer designs and the new page I am adding to the site. Mmmm, what could it be?????
Keep warm those in the north and to all, have a great day!
Well, sort of clean. As clean as I can get it right now. I love my little office/studio my husband carved out for me, when we added a family room to the back of the house. I have reduced my stash so it all fits in here (which is saying something!). I love the view from my one window, which looks out onto the garden and the bird bath, bird feeder, etc (I love birdwatching). The other window that looks out onto my neighbour back patio....not so much, but I have plans for that! The only problem is in the winter, it is very chilly sitting here. So, I have a heater beneath the desk and will often roll up a WIP to act as a draft block against the right side window where my mousepad lays.
I can see now from my pics, I need to do more tidying and editing - agh! My idea board needs a definite spring clean, as do my window sills. And a new chair perhaps. But for now, I have been on a designing run. Make hay, as they say. Four patterns in a week and a half! Samples to knit now and, oh, I just found a dress form (Judy) on Ebay that is on its way here! I keep getting UPS notice via email letting me know where it is! Where is she going to go???? I am so excited about this because it will be so much easier to fit a garment with out having to try it on all the time.
Well, back to knitting! Have a fab day everyone!
