I’m working on that *&%$ Montego Bay scarf today. I’m determined to finish it, but I am so tired of making K2togs! I’m also still waiting on my pattern for Agnes before I can start on that. I cannot wait for fall knits now! It was sooo hot and humid here yesterday. I finally broke down and subscribed to Interweave Knits and crochet, and they gave me a shipping date of 8/15 for the fall knits issue. Who knows what that means… In the meantime, I found two knits for fall that I’ve added to my list.
On the left is zephyrstyle‘s new pattern, the treejacket. I think it has some cute details, although I will confess to a certain amount of suspicion towards any knit that includes garter stitch, because I fear stretching. On the right is Patti, from Rowan Studio One. I joined Rowan International a little bit ago, since they’ve lowered prices, making it about the same cost as 2 magazines, and I ordered this as a single pattern off their website, since I don’t care for any of the other designs in this book. As an aside, has anyone ever done that, and how long did it take them to email you your patterns? It’s only been a day, but I’m curious if I should check.
Patti is also lovely because she is knit in Felted tweed, which is of course still my most favorite yarn. I only hope I don’t get allergic to it the way I was to the alpaca in my pie shawl (I doubt it; the alpaca content isn’t too high, and it hasn’t bothered me before.)
I’m also printing little stickers to go on the favor boxes at our wedding. We’re having little boxes of legos as favors, so here is the sticker I made (I got the idea online, it wasn’t mine!)
