We’ve had a stormy weekend here in Florida, perfect knitting weather (although, any weather is perfect knitting weather in my opinion).
I started with finishing my Cullum Tee. After reading other knitter’s notes, I opted to put i-cord edgings on the hem, sleeve openings, and neck. I-cords make a lovely finished edge, they are just incredibly tedious.
I steeled myself and got through it in mostly one sitting. As I write this, there is one sleeve opening calling to me. This was an enjoyable sweater to knit and I love the Shibui Koan yarn (70% Linen/30% Silk).
After lunch, Joe and I settled into our Netflix positions. Harry went into the bedroom – he finds the noise of the TV disruptive to his napping. We watched Space Force with Steve Carrell. Very light and mostly funny. If you’re going to give it a go, don’t watch the trailer. They drop many of the good lines in it.
I worked on a new design with this really cool yarn from Dancing Skies Fiber Arts. I love the texture of this yarn. The design will be a simple, asymmetric shawl so as not to compete with the texture of the yarn.
By dinner time I was ready to cast on for a new baby blanket design that will be a gift for one of my daughter’s childhood friends.
I launched a new pattern in collaboration with Knits4Comfort. We’re Making Waffles is an asymmetrical shawl with alternating bands of garter stitch with a slipped stitch pattern creates an interesting textured knit.
Jenn has created 6 unique colorways for We’re Making Waffles! Head on over to her website to check them out.
I’ve extended the introductory promotion on the pattern until July 22, 11:59 pm EST. Use WAFFLES for 20% off the pattern, or you can subscribe to my newsletter for a better discount. (I’ll email you the exclusive subscriber discount).
Because of the current situation on Ravelry, the pattern will also be available on Payhip with the same discounts and codes.
