The week brought a little of this, a little of that, much knitting and pencil chewing over a new design. I planned a little for my first vending event and did a tiny bit of shopping and finished two books.
Here’s a little gathering of “the things”:

Hoping your week was happy and productive and wishing you a great weekend 🙂
“Skully” was well received and so I’ve begun a test knit. Remind me to take notes the next time I decide to hook “off the cuff”! The skull motif is a fairly well-known one, for those of us who like that stuff and my favourite was Spider Mambo’s single crochet guy. I popped her skull into an Arcade wheel style “granny” to make “Skully”. Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember what I did. I started yesterday with hook, needles, yarn, notebook and camera (!) in my lap and set to.
“Yorick” is close to halfway done, I’ve notes and photos for a possible tutorial if this becomes a pattern and thankfully, DID remember what I’d done to create the “Slipped Stitch Open Patella Cable”. Yes. That. 8=. I’m using the KnitPicks wool of Andes sportweight again, had tons leftover and it’s super economical for proto’s and tests. I’ve promised my Girlie a #ucg version that she’ll be able to wear at work (sidebar: since when do companies hire Graphic Designers, ie: Artists, and then subject them to corporate drone dress codes?) I have some KnitPicks Shine Sport in black for multi-seasonal wear. I’m testknitting an idea that’s languished for a while. Still bearing the unfortunate name of “Green Blob” in my head but now in blue. I think if I can stop setting this down for other yarny projects, it could be pretty.

Speaking of seasons… I’m not sure who is responsible for this but you go to Mama Nature right now and apologize!! I woke to this beautiful but chilly back garden view this AM.
