Back to school, possible KAL, knitted things

August 23, 2012

I’ve been incredibly behind hand on keeping up with knitting related social thingies. (I’m sorry. My brain is completely out of whack.) School starts on Wednesday and normally that would herald an exciting influx of time available for knitting and writing and cleaning, but this year I start school on Wednesday along with the kids! It’s so so exciting and so scary at once. I’ve cut down on my submissions to books and magazines because I have no idea what my time will look like, but I’m hoping to keep Knitting Kninja alive as I become a full time student. And that means finishing old series I’ve let fall by the wayside and releasing new patterns and trying to write in this blog when I can.

SO! In that spirit, I am proposing a knit along. Mosey on over to my Ravelry group, Dangerous with Pointy Sticks, and post in this thread to tell me what pattern you’d like to knit. There’s a coupon code for 20% off any individual pattern that you can use to get started. I will be adding yarny and pattern prizes after I comb through my stash and find some pretties.

As to what I’ve been up to on the knitting front, I have been working on a new sweater pattern for wee ones. You can see an in process picture below.

It’s knit in Quince and Company Lark and I am completely smitten with this yarn. You guys. It is so round and plump and lovely to knit with, I can’t even tell you. It is the perfect yarn for cables, truly a knitter’s yarn.

I have some other, more secretive projects underway, but I’ll update with those as soon as I can! In the meantime, I hope to see you for the KAL!
