Some pretty exciting things have been transpiring in my knitting/designing life lately. I apologize for not being more consistent in my writing. I am making it a priority to keep the blog updated more regularly.
I am currently working 3 days a week for Shibui Knits on the design team, designing, engineering, writing patterns, knitting samples, etc. Can you say “dream come true”??? I love everything about it and especially the amazing, creative people I work with. What a team!
Since a lot of what I am currently working on won’t be released for several months, (I’m currently working on designs for Spring/Summer 2015) I can’t give you a lot of detail on current creations, but there are a lot of other things I CAN share.
There are new yarns and new exciting patterns coming out soon and I will elaborate more on them in the near future. If you’re able to make it to TNNA in early May, be sure to stop by the Shibui Knits booth. Our new yarn will knock your socks off!
In the process of creating new designs, I’m also honing my knitting skills and learning new techniques. My plan is to share these discoveries with you as they occur. One of the many things I love about knitting is I will never know every technique. I want to learn more about English Tailored shoulders, so I just started knitting Cocoknits’ Lulu sweater, using Shibui Knits yarn of course. I’ll go in to more detail in a future post, when I’m further along.
I guess I just wanted to give you a quick update and let you know I haven’t forgotten about you. I’ve just been a bit busy living my dream. I was able to spend a very restful week in Maui in March to celebrate my 50th birthday. I’ll leave you with a glimpse of my time there.
Happy knitting to you and I’ll be back soon!!
