Insert Catchy Title Here…

I think I’ve used that one before 🙂

So… James Harris – the test knit edition is done and I think I’m good-to-go for the pattern write. I like this one and am looking forward to the second in the series, Carey Judson. There’s some Three Irish Girls yarn winging its way here for that project 🙂

I gave in to my psych-out and started the Matinée II – small edition (Mystic Topaz) in some reclaimed Noro Kureyon Sock. I was exploring using some double knitting techniques for this but it’s so easy to do and my hope is that adventurous beginners as well as more experienced knitters will want to make this when it’s released… and not soon enough. I may need to start offering bribes for Test Knitters!

On the “been there, done that” front, I’m including an FO picture from a Raveller who just finished up a beautiful, gradient version of my “Carré Glace” pattern. I will never stop being excited anytime someone chooses to make a KeiB Designs pattern 😀

Matinée II ~ Finished

Carnelian (pattern: Matinée II) is off the needles 🙂 I love the Alegría by Manos del Uruguay and will definitely use it again. I don’t have the exact metres and grams yet; it is a little different from Matinée but that’ll come soon. Carnelian is the “large” version and the size variations are a nod to the two most standard put ups for sock and fingering yarns. The finished accessories come out to very similar dimensions due to the pattern differences.  I’m lagging a bit on getting the patterns finished but have high hopes for the rest of the day. Hope your day is wonderful 🙂
