As stated earlier I am getting published for the first time. The yarn they sent was waaaay off gauge, but I was not inclined to complain as this is my first attempt at submitting a pattern and product. It has a taken a bit of tweeking my original pattern (in aran weight silk) for the yarn they sent (a fingering weight milk/wool). It helps that the yarn they sent has a wonderfully soft and luxurious feel to it. It makes the frustration easier to deal with. ;-)
Just look at that squishy, yummy goodness. Its Kollage 1/2 N 1/2. I had never used yarn made of milk before.
Just a sneak peek. :-)
My other little project I will post here for anyone who might be interested. It was inspired by my daughter's hating to wear her eye patch (due to a lazy eye). The eye patches are ugly and plain...you know, not girly. So I decided to knit her one. I was first concerned about the fibers getting into her eye. Knit tightly and using a cotton blend helped this problem. This patch is reverseable and cute (imo). I will post the finished product soon.
Cute little kitty heads.
...and an I-cord.
My last photo is just an update on my "Perfected Henley" from Interweave Knits Mag. I only have the sleeves to finish, but what can I say??? I get kinda flighty when i comes to finishing these things sometimes. I was so excited to do my project for Cast On that I put it on hold. Hopefully it will be done and I'll be able to wear it before it gets too warm out. :-) I'm hoping blocking is gonna do wonders for this puppy.
If anyone knows how to publish patterns for free on Ravelry and has a moment to explain this process to me I'd love the input. Thanks.
