We are hunkered down here with Hurricane Sandy bearing down on us. But really, it is a rather normal day. A meeting was canceled and water bottles were filled, but other than that, things continue much as they always do in the studio. Pillows were made, patterns cut out, a bunting is on the knitting needles, and starfish are being hand sewn. The work is meditative. It is a quiet but busy day. Just the way I like it.
Big sigh of relief. This pattern is finally complete! It’s the most challenging pattern I’ve written to date. That is, challenging to write, literally. Hopefully, I’ve devised a pattern that is easy as pie for you to read and knit. There are detailed instructions for less experienced knitters, and those of you who have a few more miles of knitting under your belt should be able to take it and run. Lots of pictures (and big thanks to Sara Jensen Photography for the best ones!), helpful links, and in the end you will have one cute topper for your favorite babe.
When in doubt, count on chocolate. My homemade chocolates needed some packaging, and my dreams of repurposed ecofriendly gift treats were realized.
