It seems like I often end up knitting things I can’t fully blog about. This time it’s a scarf that my mom requested for Christmas. She knows about it, obviously, since she requested it, but she left the designing up to me, and I’d like to at least keep the stitch pattern a secret. However, if you’re a Ravelry member, click here to see the work in progress in my little notebook. If, after viewing this project, you are totally awestruck and would like to make a comment, please make it as vague as possible. My mom reads this blog, hi mom, and I want to keep at least part of this project a surprise!
And in other news, a hat pattern I designed was just accepted for the next issue of Knitcircus! I really like that magazine. Jaala, the E-i-C, does such a nice job with it. I’m very excited to be a part of this upcoming Feb 2009 issue. This pattern will finally make it to the great depths of the Ravelry pattern database! Yay! My last 2 patterns in Knitcircus were sewing patterns which are forbidden from Ravelry because they are not knitted or crocheted, even though they are patterns for essential knitting tools. See below.
Funny thing is that I met with Lisa the other day and *gulp* pulled out a ziplock bag that contained my knitting and about 5 circular needles. Ack! For which she gave me a well deserved scolding. Shame on me, I know, but in all other circumstances I really do use my needle cases. They’ve come in handy and kept my needles super organized.
