hello monday

I took the weekend off from my email inbox. I really needed the break. If you emailed me and haven't heard back, I am trying to get through everything either today or tomorrow.


What do you think of the pattern for April? I am super pleased with it. The leotard is very different from anything I've designed before, and it turned out so well. You can knit the leotard in 3 different sizes, depending on how big your toy is, so make sure to read the instructions at the beginning to know which size you want. I knit the tutu from both alpaca and mohair blend yarns, and it looks so sweet in either (the one in the photo is mohair). I think it's a great way to use up any bits of fingering or lace weight you have left-over from some other project. I included instructions for the picot edge, which gives a nice finish to the tutu.

I don't think I've mentioned it for a while, so in case you don't know, in May all the feature patterns from the last 5 months will be offered together. It will be similar to the clothes bundles already in my Lulu shop. This bundle of patterns will be available permanently in both shops. At the moment I'm not sure if I will continue with the feature patterns. I want to work on some new toy patterns, and have time to knit toys for a craft fair this summer.

I hope I'm delusional right now, because if I'm not, it really is snowing outside.

If you are delusional - you could send the snow my way. I am sure all the rest of the Vancouver people would complain, and if they close campus again, I would complain too, but then I would go play outside and stop complaining. I've had a very light diet of snow this year, and I am feeling slightly malnourished as a result!

I love that outfit! Will the patterns be different or include the fuzzy knits. I may wait before I order it.

Ignore those last two comments. Looked on the side bar for 'features' and worked out what they are.

I might faint from the cuteness! I was going to wait until May for the bundle...but I don't know if I can stand it!

I was just about to ask when the batch of clothes will be available. I have loved all of them so far. I really enjoy the concept of a pattern a month but I can see how it would take time away from other things. I will be happy having some more clothes to choose from (and I can see how a little child would love a set of clothes and a stuffed animal as a gift - I think I would have adored such a gift as a child - thank you for making the gift idea so easy and fun to complete)
