Testing, testing.....

Aha!!! I knew you were out there! I can hear you breathe!
Anyway....testing a pair of socks which is a "sekrit", because they are considered for publication somewhere. And they don't like to have the design plastered all over the place in advance. Lots of cable-ing involved, but lovely pattern.
I gave my friend Patty the  gloves today that were a mystery knit-along and came out way to big for me. They fit her like a glove (pun intended, lol) and she absolutely loved them. I'm all giddy inside. Here is a pic of the gloves:

I am also in a test knit for a baby blanket (no...NO!!!!! I'm not going to be a Grandma!!!! EVER!!!!). The pattern is based on Estonian lace patterns and just "daahling". I will keep going in pattern and turn it into a lovely wrap. Pictures will be posted when I have more than one repeat.

My "Cable-Lacey's" have been accepted by KnitPicks and the pattern is up for purchase.
The "Five Gables" are in the final consideration stage with a "one-pattern-a-day-calendar" and I am insanely proud of that. They will let me know in January if the pattern has been chosen and on what day the pattern will appear.

In the final testing stages is a new pattern of mine, called "goosebumps. Here's a pic:

I poked a hole in my left index finger today.
My skin is rather dry in the winter and having to wash my hand in my line of work 5000 times a day doesn't really help.
So the skin finally
Too much is going on for one post, so I shall update in the next few days.
See ya!


  1. Yay!!! More published patterns. I can't wait until I get to tell people, "Sure, I know Karin, we go WAY back, before she was famous and all." The day is coming. Won't be long, either!

    Your hands - yowie! And owie. That has to be so uncomfortable. :-(

  2. *bows* Thank you! You will get the first copy of any pattern book with signature, lol. I got some really good suggestions about hand creams from the knitters on Ravelry. This house will turn into a science lab to see what works best for me, lol.
