Julian Vest Debut

This vest is a debut of a new pattern I have been working on. This vest is knit in a bottom-up fashion; starting with a rib stitch detail on the bottom and a lovely "V" design down the front. The vest also features a V-neck, and a two button closure across the left shoulder (which makes it really easy to get the vest over a baby's head).

The yarn used is a semi-solid teal colorway dyed by me on Mountain Meadow Rambouillet.

A new project bag

I've been ogling and drooling over project bags for quite some time now. I just never could make the commitment and get one. Well last week I just couldn't take it anymore and decided to get one for myself.
I searched and searched on Hyenacart and finally stumbled upon a bag from "Made by Maria"
The fabric was beautiful and so I went for it.

This is what the packaging looked like when I took it out of the protective plastic bag.

And an action shot

I have to say I am really impressed with the craftsmanship of the bag. The stitches are perfect, the straps are double stitched, and just overall the bag is very professionally done.

I feel like I'm going to become a crazy project bag lady, I could have one bag for each project I am knitting. Oh that would be marvelous.

Yarnie Heaven

I opened a new wholesale account. I just about had a heart attack as I was sorting through all of the available bases. I picked five new bases to add to my offerings, I am still drooling over the cashmere blend base but the pocketbook just couldn't handle it.

- Dolce BFL (available in Aran, DK, sock)
- Aura Merino (Worsted, DK, sock)
- Sol Merino Superwash (Worsted, DK, sock)
- Rhea 50/50 Merino Silk blend (Worsted, DK, sock)
- Eos Merino (Worsted, DK, sock)

Coastal Susnet Hat

Elliot was in love with this hat. So I promised him I will make him one just like it. I have two more customs coming up, but after that I hope to make something for my sweetie. I'm thinking I will make him a scrappy hat.
Knit with Mosaic Moon's Coastal Sunset on Mountain Meadow Rambouillet. YUM!

Gotta love his undies!

Black Rainbow Custom Longies

I am really excited about these longies. They are 100% me from beginning to end. I dyed the yarn and then knit it up!
The colorway is a custom request, a customer requested a black rainbow with black trim. I have done a similar colorway before called 'Pink Floyd' but in that case I muted the colors to give them all a slightly gray feel.

I can't wait to see some action shots!
