The Sunrise Circle Jacket

The good news: The pattern has been fixed and made available again.

The bad news: It's for sale, not for free.

First of all, it is an awesome pattern, which is more than worth the $6 it costs. It just kind of sucks to have to buy a pattern I already have (came with Interweave Knits subscription couple of years ago) and that I've already started. I have been waiting for the revised version to come out but now I'm just going to start the sleeves and front part and see if I can't just wing it (I mean everybody else did).

Spring Knitty

I'm both too busy and too sick (just a cold though) to blog AND knit (and that's saying something!). But Spring Knitty is up!

p.s. The picture in the last post is from a market bag, made out of linen (hör)! Fancy, smancy.

p.s. nr. 2

The spring Twist Collective is also up.

Hurray for the free knitting magazines (although in the second case you pay for the pattern (and the designer gets a fair cut - tres cool), you get to read it for free). How unfairly the knitting magazines pay their designers is a blog post on it's own, but I'm not the person to write it.

Friday News update

I got my newsletter from Knitpicks today (email version). What do you know! They have organic cotton now, Simply Cotton. I heart organic cotton. It's really soft and nice to work with and now it's more available. Hurray!

But no knitting news I am afraid. I've been too busy to knit or to play with my new camera (yes, I finally got a new camera). But here is a little preview of what I've been knitting on lately.


Have a nice weekend.
