Good morning everyone! I am excited to announce that in honor of test knitting beginning for Sister Wren, the girl's version of Baby Wren that will be released mid-October, I'm offering Baby Wren for free with coupon code LOVELYSEPTEMBER from my Ravelry shop. Use the link above to take you directly to the pattern page. I'm excited to see your finished versions!
I am also looking for a few more test knitters for Sister Wren. The pattern will be offered in 5 sizes--4 year old (6, 8, 10, 12) with finished chest circumferences of 26" (28", 30", 32", 34"). Any worsted weight yarn will work and yardage requirements are as follows: 350 yds (440, 530, 630, 730). Gauge is 16 stitches & 21 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch with sz 9 needles (or size to obtain gauge). If you'd be interested in test knitting, please join my Ravelry Group--A Lovely Homemade Life and post your wish to join in on the thread. I need about one additional tester per size--the limit per size is 2 testers.
Enough business. :) I finally blocked my Driftwood and got a good picture of it. It came out so beautifully! I can't wait to wear it...Texas is a tough place for a knitter to live, but I hear the weekend is supposed to be cooler!
I also started a Christmas project. In case the recipient stops by I'll refrain from sharing the pattern for now, but let me just say that madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light is fantastic to work with. I'm in no hurry to get through this one...it's so relaxing to knit with this yarn!
For Michael's birthday he asked for What If? by Randall Munroe and he's been sharing choice snippets with me this week. If you're into hypothetical questions, science and math then this book is for you! The author has a regular web comic where he takes questions from people and then "maths them out" in a rather entertaining fashion. You can check out his work at what-if.xkcd.com.
Linking up with Ginny. Happy knitting!
