Ooh, Shiny!

So I'm still on this whole 'actually getting things done' streak. (gasp! shock!) As you can tell, I finally got around to figuring out how to make the blog more how I wanted it and less pepto bismol. Hopefully you all like the new look! I may still tinker with a few things here and there, and I'm open for constructive criticism and suggestions.

On the pattern front, I'm thrilled that so many people have already downloaded the Bow-utiful Baby Headband pattern! I can't wait to see what you all make with it, and please send me any pictures of your finished headbands and I'll put them on the blog if you'd like. Just attach a note as to whether or not you want the photo published, and a name you would like the photo credited to.

I'm about halfway done with the second free pattern I have to offer you, and I can't wait to see your reactions to that when it's done. I should have that up possibly by the end of the week!

Warm Weather and a Free Pattern!

Welcome to day two of what appears to be an actual productivity streak. (gasp!)

Today the weather is so nice that I can't justify sitting here at the desk for too long, but I was just too excited to get my very first pattern up on the blog. So for those in the U.S., I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day, and for everyone, enjoy the free pattern! I hope you love it as much as I do, and of course if anyone has a problem or spots an error, please feel free to drop me a comment or a message on Ravelry. The pdf pattern includes modifications to make any size, including adult. And please excuse the rather awful photos, as I will be replacing them with much nicer ones soon!

Without further ado, the Bow-utiful Baby Headband!

Is it Summer already?

Time simply keeps flying past at a rate I can't seem to keep up with. The Christmas decor is barely put away, and yet it's already time to start dragging the kiddie pool out. I have been slacking in more departments than just updating the blog, and hopefully the warmer weather will propel me into this 'productivity' thing I hear so much about.

In the coming days I'll have the first of hopefully many of my own knitting designs available for free right here on the blog, so at least that's something to look forward to and keep me moving in the right direction. I'm also very excited to be participating in my first ever group event on my favorite website, Ravelry coming this July! The event is a 'WIP Wrestling' contest, wherein teams compete to complete as many 'works in progress' (WIPs) as possible in the month of July. I can tell already that it's going to be a blast, and those of you knitters and crocheters out there that haven't checked out Ravelry yet, there's still plenty of time to head over and get signed up for both a fabulous website as well as the WIP Wrestling event.
