I have some pretty exciting stuff to share in regards to knitting this week!
One of the test knits I worked on the summer was published on Ravelry this week! So I was able to link my project page to this pattern. And this is a picture of the test knit I did (which you will see as a featured image on the pattern page!!)
This amazing pattern was created by the fabulous Kate Atherley. She is a local knitter, teacher and pattern creator/editor In the Toronto area.
I also finished the hat/scarf/mitt set for my niece. You can find lots of the project info on that set HERE
Here is picture of the whole set…
I am now 25% of the way finished a test knit/crochet for a designer on ravelry. She has a goal to write 100 beanie/slouchy hat patterns in a year. It is pretty neat. You can find her group here
Next up will be another beanie test for the group mentioned above, then my sister fell in love with the fingerless mitts pictured above (not the ones from the set, but the text knit ones) and has kindly asked that a pair of those in grey be made for her. Naturally I said sure.
I must comment about these test knits I have done – even though my YOP progress does not appear clearly laid out, I have been accomplishing and gaining much more than the garments made this year. These test knits and crochet projects often have pattern elements that I under normal circumstances would not have attempted or delved into… But the upside, doing all of these tests, is making me a better knitter and crocheter. For that I am thankful and am encouraged.
Must get to bed as tomorrow/today is going to be quite busy. Have a good night!
