This Week in the Studio

- Yarn deliveries are happening almost daily in preparation for a busy few months of designing. I am working almost exclusively on garments, which what I really love designing and making. I know I say this about EVERYTHING, but the one I am working on at the moment is probably my favourite design to date. 

- Also arrived is Shirley Paden's excellent Knitwear Design Workshop. I have taken her Craftsy class, which was great and the book really goes into the math side of design (which I love). 

- My Woolfest purchases were modest in the first place, but Mac the dog got ahold of my hank of gorgeous Ripples Craft 100% BFL (easily my current favourite yarn) in Stormy Seas.  I have  put the very tangled hank in a cupboard awaiting a visit from my father in law, who is Kat Goldin Design's cheif yarn-untangler.


- There are exciting things afoot for The Crochet Project.  In advance of Issue 3, Issue 1 is getting a re-release with charts and schematics as well as a UK version.  I will be uploading patterns tonight, so watch this space!
