Hat Sneak Peak

I just have to start by saying that it's times like this that I'm so thankful for the day I sat watching my sister-in-law knit that baby sweater while chatting over a cup of coffee (well, at least I was drinking coffee, I don't remember if she was...) I just knew I had to learn how to do that! And here we are 4 or 5 years later...

I just finished the hat for the hat and mittens set I'm working on for the Blue Sky Alpacas' fall line up... oh, the fun of fair isle! The process definitely had me designing many a little fair isle sweater in my head, and some hats, and some more mittens... if only there were about 24 more knitting hours in every day...

Well, now I've got to get cracking on the matching mittens and get the pattern all worked out- I've got just over 2 weeks to crank them out... then I can get back to some of my other designs and a lot more personal knitting!

Still working on a row or 2 here and there on the Pea Pod, I'm ready to divide for the armholes...

And, my seriously striped sock is inching along, very slowly, but very surely...

That's all for now-

Happy knitting,

Love it! Can't wait to see the finished product. You and I have to talk Ali, how did you get started or connected with designing? I have so many ideas and things but I am not sure where to start!

Hook me up girlfriend :-)

Oh wow I can't wait to see your fair isle stylings. If it's like the rest of you work, I'm sure it's top drawer!;)

Oooh that looks very enticing. I haven't done fair isle yet, but I want to give it a go.

Your sneak peek is so pretty, love the colors your are using.

Looking forward to seeing the pattern in the fall.

And I was looking at the picture of you bouncing your baby and knitting, you are such a pretty mama :-)
