In between getting ready for the Sadelma (Heidi Alander) interview and KAL (you can suggest questions to ask her here) I have been knitting quite a lot. I’ve been asked to design a pattern for Mandie Harrington’s Middle-Earth yarn club, so I’ve been charting like crazy. I have another pattern in the works which will hopefully be out soon.
I’m in the final stages of knitting Shaun the Sheep for my little sister! Only the eyes and the tail left. I hate sewing eyes, and I don’t want to knit the tail. I’m feeling very uninspired by it all.
And then, when I told her that I was almost done, her eyes got really big and she said in an excited squeal, “Yes! And then, you can make his family!”
… You get the idea.
I’m knitting the Afternoon Tea shawl by Helen Stewart in this bright, bright pink color that looks like neon frosting. The sister I’m making this for is not the biggest fan of pink, so I’m hoping it will bleed out when I wash it.
I have one thing finished that I can’t talk about quite yet, but that will be revealed soon.
And one more time: The Sadelma KAL will start on June 1st and will run through August 1st, so start plotting your projects now! Even though this information is not pertinent right now, tag the patterns by Heidi Alander that you’re going to make with the tag “sadelma2015tsm”. If you queue the patterns, you’ll be able to enter the tag then.
I’m really excited about this, and I can’t wait for everything to start up!
