Man, it's gotten to be busy over here. Lots of knitting happening right now. I've got holiday knitting in full swing, and only about five designs in progress. I'd love to get one of my tests started up Dec 1st, so it'd be dandy to wrap at least one of them up soon!! Unfortunately, holiday knitting has taken over a bit, as I'm celebrating Christmas early with my family over Thanksgiving. True to my nature... I'm leaving it till the very last minute, and I've still got to finish them up. :o/ Wish me luck, I guess!!
Well, let's start with the projects that I can actually show you. :o) Here's a bulky weight sweater that I'm hoping to get tested mid to late Dec for release in late January. The yarn is Paloma Tweed by Debbie Bliss, and I'm loving the drape and squish factor here!! It's a cable plied yarn, so it's also very lightweight for a bulky. It's warm but doesn't make me feel like I'm dragged down by how heavy it is.
In actuality, I'm not done with this sample. However, I still need to work out the DK version of this hat, so it's not quite ready for testing. :o) It is the matching hat to Cunegonde, of which I'm currently calling Maggie.
Last thing to show, this very moment, are some fingerless mitts done up with only 3 Unicorn Tails! They can be done with any fingering weight minis, as well. I'm excited to say that one mitt has been completed, and I am working on the second one, so hopefully, they will also be ready for testing in the semi near future. :o)
In addition to these guys, I've got two more designs on the needles right now... so now the question is, spread out the testing or do it all at once?? ;op I think I'm more likely to spread them out, actually. It is easier for me to keep track of changes if they're done one or two, max, at a time. Please watch out for tests on my Ravelry Forum: Norichan Knits! :o)
Oh, and if you're interested... the other two designs I'm currently working on will both me fingerless mitts, as well. One in a single color of fingering weight, and one in a single color of worsted weight. :o)
