Update

I have to admit that I'm taking way to many and too long breaks inbetween posts, but what's a girl to do if there isn't much I can show, because I've been doing a lot of Knit Picks work. I'm on the third one since the last post and none of them I can show you. Too bad. One was purple and with a new tweedy worsted yarn, that they don't even sell on the website yet, plus it's a new in house design, so no info on that. The next one is a baby set, that I just sent back last friday. It's in the new organic cotton yarn you see on the KP main page right now and will be in the may catalog. The latest one I got it lace. That's all I can tell you and it's a new color for the Shadow yarn. Yum, I say. You might find some sneak pics on Ravelry.






Also, I've felted five pairs of slippers so far and finished a baby blanket. Here are the finished pics.


This pair went to Monika and I'm happy to report that she likes them very much.This is the pair my younger son wanted and got.

And this one is my older son with his beloved slippers. I have to say that they have been a success and very well received. This is the baby blanket that is going to his new intented owner. I saw the pregnant mom yesterday and it's time to pack it up and give it away next weekend.

We, the Hardin County Fiber Arts Group on Ravelry, are also entering in a arts and crafts fair in our area in May and we've been brainstorming and coming up with all kinds of things to make and sell. Here is what I made so far. It's not much, but you have to admit, I didn't have much time for lots of inbetween-knitting.
I call him a snuggle bear. I've knitted a bear head and stuffed him and attached him to a snuggly blanket. We'll see how many more of these I can crank out.
I hope that was enough update for now, because I need to get back to brainstorming.

Snuggle Bear is sweet, little ones love those blankies.

Every time I see the baby blanket, I want to cast on right away, it's lovely. So is the bear blanky, so very cute! It's great when you see how people enjoy your knit things, like the slippers. Very practical and comfy. :o) Looking forward to see your KP things in the catalog!

That bear blankie is waaay to cute. And I know how you feel when you want to post, but can't. I have several designs I want to keep secret until I have the pattern ready for distribution.... and it's hard because I like to share!

Yes, but you'll have FO's to share at some point, unlike say, me. :)

That bear is cute! So is the blanket. And the slippers look snuggly warm.

So has your electricity stayed on? The roof? Buried in snow?
