• Shhhhh.... head down for a while. I’ve got 3 patterns to write.
If you need me, I’ll be sitting here, listening to my asmr white noise, drinking my homemade Americano (🙌 @bialettiofficial ) and sifting through all the notes and remeasuring all the things. 😘

The computer space is much, much different than my creative space.
My studio is very white and bright- it seems to help in the process of putting thought to yarn.
The home library, where the computer is, has velvety, navy walls with dark woods- very cozy and focused. The smallest room in the house, and It’s the room my family spends most of our time. 🥰

Do you have different areas/spaces that help you focus on different tasks??

  • On my mind...
I like to leave yarn out so I can peek at it and see if it has something to say about its future.
I’m fairly certain where I’m headed with these, but it’s not a definite yet.
I still need to swatch and play around.
For now, it’s sitting on my desk, deciding.
Do you hem and haw and contemplate or just jump in?
I think I do a bit of both.... sometimes. But probably overthink more often than not.

  • Happy together.
Mila steals Lucy’s bone at every opportunity even though she has one that is exactly the same. Exactly.the.same. 🦴

It’s time for an update on her. She went in for her 6week post-op appointment. 
All is well! The X-ray showed her healing to be where it should be at this point in her recovery.

She has been released to resume all normal puppy activity- not that I was able to stop her over the past month.🐾 Once again, I just want to thank you all for the pattern purchases.
It truly has helped. Everything helps.

I know we all know what turmoil those gut-punch, unexpected costs can do to a family budget. The generosity and kindness ya’ll showed helped just as much as the financial. For several days it was...really really hard. Anyway, I’ll leave it there and just say thank you, again 🖤❤️

  • Ya’ll, all of this deadline work has my brain on overdrive. You know that old saying “you always want what you can’t have”?
Yep. Pretty much that.
I have so many things I want to make!!
All of my time must be completely devoted to the deadlines. Seeing everyone start posting their new fall yarn acquisitions has my fingers itching to swatch all my thoughts...*sigh. 
Are you looking for the next project to carry you into the quickly approaching fall season?
Cascade Falls is my latest free pattern. Maybe it’s what you’re new yarn has been waiting on 😉 (follow the links ⬆️)

  • The teeniest bit of progress.
And cutie patootie cat booty.
🐾
Deadline stitching has pretty much taken over my life right now. I hope to have the testing call for this sweater out soon, but it has to be back burnered, only getting the last 15 minutes of my days... teeny progress is still progress 🤷‍♀️💕

  • A fun little something for my baby girl and her new apartment.

I’ll have it up on the blog as soon as I can get it all typed and such.

  • It’s FREE pattern day!

Cascade Falls - a waterfall front vest that is truly all season and wear with everything. #CascadeFallsVest

I really think you’re going to like this one. 🤞

The pattern is posted on @joyofmotion as part of her guest designer series that I am so excited to be a part of!! Loads of lovely things to see over there 😃

Also, remember I told you I planned to start making for myself and therefore ‘modeling’? 😰

  • A new thing.... No time to be brainy or chatty.
I haven’t even had longer than 5 minute spurts to peek in and see what you’re all working on. ☹️ The busy season of yarning is upon me. And I mean, big fat, sitting on my chest.

There is a great layering piece I made coming out tomorrow! So that’s exciting.& Until then, I’ll be knitting.
And my 5 minutes are up. ⏰

  • Coffee break.
I literally shoved everything away on my desk and am giving myself 30mins to just breathe. 
My espresso is still too hot to drink, so thought I’d pop in here and remind you:
It’s okay to take a minute and just be. ☕️
.
.
Also, my @bialettiofficial Moka pot is new and I love it. I read an article on how the coffee pod phase has thrown them into financial woes, so thought I’d do my tiny part. And, with as much coffee as I drink in the afternoon, figure switching to espresso will save me money down the road. H/t to @spacecadetyarn for the article... Do you get her newsletter? You should. Hands down one of my favorites. Always interesting and man oh man, her yarns are gorgeous.
*testing sip.. yep, it’s ready.
Have a great day, ya’ll
