It’s finally winter, but you wouldn’t know it by stepping outside here in northern Virginia. On Saturday, the first official day of winter, we hit 65 degrees and it was warm and sunny. Not 2 weeks ago we were watching snow fall while our fire roared, keeping us toasty. Yesterday, the temperature was nearly 75 degrees, and as I was driving home from the grocery store I watched summer-like thunder clouds roll in. Fat raindrops began to fall and hit my windshield and I actually had to turn on the vehicles air conditioning. What in the world is going on here.
I’ve got a new design coming soon, and it’s in final testing right now. It’s a dk weight lace hat that will be a great beginners lace pattern. It’s getting great reviews on Ravelry where I’m having it tested, and I can’t wait to be able to release the final pattern. I received yarn support from Malabrigo for the sample in the form of 2 skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino. The stitch definition that this yarn provides is making me swoon, guys. It’s love.
I’ve got tons of fun stuff planned for 2014, and I hope that you will try to be a part of it. Be sure that you are signed up for the Must.Knit.Faster Birthday Club– you’ll get a Birthday Club exclusive pattern (or 2) around the first of the month of your birthday. The only stipulation is that you have to still be a member of the group when your birth month rolls around to get the free pattern(s). It’s gonna be fun! Sign ups are now open in the Must.Knit.Faster Ravelry group, so check it out!
