In other news, I just found out the pattern I submitted to Knitty for their Spring issue was accepted. Needless to say, I'm excited to the point of constant shrillness about this. I can't even try to act cool about it...nor can I tell you anything about the item to be featured, as one of Knitty's requirements is that it be previously unpublished.

But I think it's not giving TOO much away to provide this picture of a finished version of it that I gave to a friend...

Let the countdown to early March begin!


I finally got those last few balls of yarn I needed and finished the latest design: Harriet, an allover cable cardigan with contrast collar. The fantastic photo below is by Stephanie Gage, who in addition to her mad skillz behind the lens is also a talented fiber artist.

I got so antsy waiting for the yarn to come in that I knitted a whole other Harriet for my pal Jene (b.k.a. "T-Bone"), which is collarless but, I think, equally pretty in this strawberry-ice-cream pink. They're both made with Sublime cashmere/merino/silk, which is absolutely delicious yarn to work with--highly recommended for cushiness, color, and shine.

I'm finishing up the math for all the in-between sizes now, and will probably have the pattern ready for sale in the next week or so. The final version of the pattern will include instructions for both neckline variations, in case you're wondering...
