I’ve changed my logo and I’m started to re-work my branding. A new look is on the way for good knit, including an update to this blog. I will be creating new pdfs of all my patterns, re-testing many of the patterns and I have two new patterns in development. If you are interested in downloading my patterns you can visit me by clicking on either my Raverly link or Craftsy link in the sidebar or visiting my Free Patterns page on this blog.
A dear friend of mine asked me to make a baby hat for an expecting couple he knows. His stipulations? Please make the Jayne Cobb hat from Firefly. So I did a quick search on Raverly and found this free pattern, Sweet Baby Jayne hat pattern. I could have figured out the pattern on my own, but it was nice not to have to. I ended up revising the pattern because I didn’t buy the right weight wool and saw right away the hat would be too small. It took a few hours of knitting and is just so darn cute.
So yes I’m feeling a bit guilty for not blogging for over a month. I have been busy with the continuing renovations in my house and helping the girls as they performed in a production of Oliver Twist. During this time as always, I kept knitting and completed my Knot Socks. I feel these socks are one of the best pieces of knitting I have ever done. They were challenging and new for me even with all my years of knitting. One of the reasons I love to knit so much is there seems to be endless methods, skills and types of patterns out there to conquer.
There should be fewer excuses for missing posts from now on as the play is over and we have decided not to sell our house until next year (as long as the market is good). We are going to continue the renovations we set out to do originally, but now we have more time for them.
