I was about to post an update on my Corbel Sweater progress when I remembered that today is a Minerva Crafts Blogger Network day! And I made the cutest dress that I cannot wait to show you. ❤️ I made a Cami Dress!!
I can hardly believe I've finally made it to Episode 50! What a milestone that is! 😱 The podcast has been so unpredictable throughout this year that I wasn't sure I'd ever get to this point. I want to thank each and every one of you who has watched, commented, liked, and subscribed. Your support means the world to me and I am so glad I get to talk about all of my crafty shenanigans with you. 😘
I'm thrilled to announce that the very first installment of the brand new Emmy Couture Yarns Almanac Minis Club will be available for pre-order next Wednesday, on August 29th at 3:00 p.m. EST.
The theme for this first installment is: "An Old English Library". Each mini skein set will contain gorgeous autumn shades in a variety of variegated, tonal, and speckled colorways. All colorways are exclusive to the club for a whole year.
I've knit several cardigans over the past few years since I became more serious about knitting, but never dared brave the world of pullovers.
And then I saw Emily's podcast where she was talking about this new sweater design she was working on. As soon as I clapped eyes on it, I fell madly in love! I couldn't get it out of my mind. I immediately volunteered for test knitting, and started scheming up different colorway combinations.
Now that I've finished my Lofoten sweater, (blog post coming tomorrow!!!) it's time to show you another project that I'm knitting. I am loving these WIP posts! It is helping me slow down and appreciate the process as well as taking all of my lovely readers (you 😘) along on the journey. It makes it so exciting!
Have you seen the August Knitcrate boxes yet? The color scheme this month is totally gorgeous. I want all of the different colorways, but I've restrained myself to purchasing just the Artisan Crate.
Thank you to whomever used my referral link last month!
I am fairly convinced that Mina Philipp is a super woman. She is a fantastic knitting pattern designer who is constantly creating some of the most beautiful patterns I've ever seen. I've wanted to be a pattern tester for her for some time, but, as you can imagine, the position is much desired by many knitters. Somehow, I managed to get my name in soon enough to be a tester for her newly released Cumulus Hat.
In this episode I discuss the yarn kits I have put together for Libby Jonson's (aka Truly Myrtle) new Floozy cardigan design, show off all of my current knitting WIPs, talk about the fun crochet project I'm hooking away on, share my sewing plans for upcoming Minerva Crafts Blogger Network makes, and gush over the amazing vacation Evan and I went on in July.
The day has arrived! Abby of the More Knits Podcast has released her latest design: the Ode to Spring shawl. This triangular shawl is made up of alternating sections of 2-color brioche and garter stitch. It is mindless and perfect for a cozy evening snuggled up to watch your favorite movie or tv show. There is enough changes to prevent boredom, but it isn't so complicated that you must be undistracted in order to work on it. I am so glad I was able to be a test knitter!
And I'm nearly done! I cannot believe how quickly this sweater has knit up. I was getting rather stressed and worried that I wouldn't be able to complete it in time. But here I am, one sleeve away from having a finished sweater! Then it's just a matter of weaving in ends and giving it a good block. 🎉 Hooray! 🎉
